Basket Weaving

The Hehe ethnic group in Iringa is famous for its woven baskets. Women use dry reeds to weave beautiful baskets that are used as containers for everything imaginable. Some baskets are woven so tightly that they are used to drink the locally brewed beer.

Our students spent an afternoon in the heartland of the Hehe people, the village of Kalenga, where they learned how to weave these distinctive baskets.
