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.
