Milulu Basket Traditional XL
Unieke, handgemaakte manden uit Oost-Afrika.
Milulu baskets are traditionally made by hand in the rural South of Tanzania. Women use a reed-like swamp grass and natural dyes, giving the baskets a natural, durable and timeless feeling. The weavers often have to walk several kilometers to harvest the grass before carrying it back to their village to dry. When dried, an artisan weaves the basket by hand, carefully intertwining the traditional ochre patterns. Women mostly work from the safe environment of their home. Completing a medium size basket can take up to one week
Every basket is unique and serves as an example of the extraordinary craft skills of women in the South. They are perfect for plants, storage or decoration. Due to the full handwork process sizes and colors may slightly vary.
