    Meet the Artisans

    About Iringa: The city of Iringa is situated about 300 miles from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Home of the Hehe people, the town was originally built as a military base by the Germans in the 1890s as they sought to oppress the Hehe, led by the brave Chief Mkwawu. Today, Iringa is a thriving city populated by over 100,000 people. Woven from milulu grass, a reed-like swamp grass, Iringa baskets are an indispensable utility item in East Africa and around the world.


    Our products will have slight variations in design and size, this is a natural occurrence in handmade goods and one of the many reasons we love them so.

    No two designs will be exactly alike, giving you a lasting one-of-a-kind product to treasure for years to come.

    If you are looking for specific dimensions on a product, please contact us so we can assist in finding the right fit.

    I just received my second order, and I cannot express how happy I am with it. I ordered the long and the short brass wall sconces, candles, and the breathtaking votive candle chandelier. Everything came packaged very nicely and arrived in perfect condition.

    My infant daughter recently spent some time in the ICU and her kantha baby blanket was one of the only things of hers from home that we had with us. It was a source of comfort and kept her warm and swaddled her over the cords for her entire stay. We love Connected Goods and these blankets specifically.
