In Tanzania the baskets are woven from a local grass called "Milulu", grown near water points.
The first step is to harvest the Mililu. The women sometimes have to walk for several hours in the sun to reach the field. The grass is then brought back to the village on their heads. It is impressive to see what these women can carry on their heads. Then the Milulu is dried in the sun for several days before being dyed if necessary. When these steps are completed, the fibre is ready to be woven.
The entire process up to the finished product is 100% natural and locally handmade thanks to the skills of the artisans passed down from generation to generation. No plastics, no chemicals, no pollution...
