African Straw Hats


Although Tango Zulu is best known for its African baskets, we also stock beautiful handwoven African straw hats from Mali, Burkina Faso, and Ghana.  These fair trade West African hats are primarily used as sun hats by farmers and livestock herders in their home countries.  We carry an assortment of shapes and sizes, with and without leather chin straps.  We even have some very traditional Fulani herder's hats from Mali.

New African Baskets

Our African basket selection at Tango Zulu Imports continues to grow.  Tomorrow we're adding Zulu bowl baskets to the mix.  We have long carried Zulu Ukhamba beer baskets and herb baskets, and it is a natural progression to include the round, open bowl baskets that are wonderful for holding bread or fruit, or just for display.

We also are adding to our Wolof prayer mat baskets from Senegal and Nubian baskets Kenya.  we always have a huge selection of Bolga baskets from Ghana, and continue to stock Darfur baskets from Sudan and a whole array of East African baskets. 

We are adding new stock to our website daily, so stay tuned!

New Products at Tango Zulu Imports

We have dozens of new products in stock and more on the way!  One of our favorites is this fair trade goat skin drum from Kenya, which is equally at home as a musical instrument or an art piece.  We also have added a few food items and will be adding more, like these delicious Palestinian candied almonds.  We always have a large and revolving inventory of African baskets, including our popular Bolga baskets from Ghana.   Keep an eye on the right side of our home page for a list of new products.
