100% handmade from 'Milulu' grass
The environmentally-friendly reed grass called "Milulu" is used for weaving the bags. The "Milulu" grows near streams, and the local women uproot, clean, and dry these grasses before using them for weaving the bags. We combine the skillfully hand-woven hampers with elements of high-quality Tanzanian leather. We carefully add the leather by hand to ensure the quality of the final product.
Sustainable & Ethical
When you choose a TUPIA hamper, you support sustainable and ethical fashion while contributing to positive social and environmental impacts. By making a purchase, you contribute to the full-time employment for over 300 previously unemployed rural women in Iringa and Njombe, Tanzania. Plus you help preserve their long-standing tradition of weaving.
Transparant & Personal
Vikapu Bomba believes that apart from being fair, trade should also be transparent and personal. That’s why each all of our products come with a label that features a portrait and brief story about the 'mama' (local woman artisan) who wove the tote bag. So you will know exactly where the products comes from and who made it.
