    About Iringa: The city of Iringa is about 300 miles from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Home of the Hehe people, the town was initially built as a military base by the Germans in the 1890s as they sought to oppress the Hehe, led by the brave Chief Mkwawu. Today, Iringa is a thriving city populated by over 100,000 people.


    Our products will have slight variations in design and size, this is a natural occurrence in handmade goods and one of the many reasons we love them so.

    No two designs will be exactly alike, giving you a lasting one-of-a-kind product to treasure for years to come.

    If you are looking for specific dimensions on a product, please contact us so we can assist in finding the right fit.

    This is STUNNING! Y'all have done it again! I am so impressed with your products and the artisans you partner with. These products are natural, beautiful, and unique. They hit on trends but also beautifully depict those that hand-make them. No questions, I just wanted you to know I am grateful to have found your shop! :)

    There is so much I love about this company, including their intention, their support of small artisans and real people, along with quality and sustainable materials. Everything is beautiful and a work of art, including their brooms. The customer service is exceptional as well. I feel supported with every interaction. I will continue to support such a heart centered business that makes the world more beautiful.

    I just received my second order, and I cannot express how happy I am with it. I ordered the long and the short brass wall sconces, candles, and the breathtaking votive candle chandelier. Everything came packaged very nicely and arrived in perfect condition.

    My infant daughter recently spent some time in the ICU and her kantha baby blanket was one of the only things of hers from home that we had with us. It was a source of comfort and kept her warm and swaddled her over the cords for her entire stay. We love Connected Goods and these blankets specifically.

    Connected Goods is truly a personal, Family-Feeling Company. From beginning to the end of a transaction, and everything in between, Connect Goods Customer Service representatives are accessible, friendly, flexible and, most importantly, kind and understanding. I highly respect their business model of putting both their crafts-people and customers first and foremost, as well as going the extra mile to assure customer satisfaction, and feel-good future purchasing experiences.
