Responsibly sourced and thoughtfully crafted with local milulu by Fair Trade artisans in Tanzania. The milulu makes durable baskets, which can be rinsed with cool water and reshaped as needed.

Artisan Story

HANDWOVEN IN TANZANIA

"The closeness to the earth of both maker and product gives these beautifully crafted baskets widespread appeal."

Vikapu Bomba embodies the vision of Catherine Shembilu to create sustainable income for talented rural Tanzanian women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning, and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.
