What is the cultural significance of Maasai beads?

The Maasai tribe of Africa is well known for its traditional handmade bead jewelry. Beadwork has been an important part of Maasai culture for many years. 

The beadwork an individual wears will signify their age and social status. Generally individuals of high social standing will wear more colorful and intricate jewelry. Beads also serve as an important source of income for the Maasai.

Now made all over Kenya, Uganda, and more African countries, our jewelry helps street kids to learn a traditional art form, create, and have a hand up to break the chain of homelessness and poverty.  Read more about the impact of your purchase and the artisans who made this jewelry.

Details

  • big square beads, hand-carved then batiked with a unique mud cloth print
  • stretchy bracelet will fit most wrists
  • materials used: hand carved cow bone, small beads, connector elastic
  • size: approximately 6.5" un-stretched
  • due to the creativity of our artisans, exact prints may vary as each piece is one of a kind.

How is this made?

Batik is a time-consuming process. First wax is applied to the bones in the desired pattern. The bones are then dipped in dye, parts that are waxed take the dye. Once the wax is removed, a print like the one on these bracelets is produced.

Additionally, when a cow is used for food, not a single piece is wasted!  These unique bracelets are eco-friendly and sustainable, as they promote the ethical use of animals for needed sustenance, needed employment, and independence and empowerment for entire communities.

Beautiful handmade jewelry with a feel good backstory for you, safe living wage employment for our artisan partners . . . everybody wins!
