    For many people, the elaborate beadwork made by Maasai women may seem nothing more than a colourful decoration that enlivens ceremonies and dancing. But for the Maasai Mamas these beads represent their deep devotion to creating a better future for themselves, their children, families and their communities. Today, these women have a source of financial independence, enabling them to feed their families as well as afford their children’s school fees, hopefully cutting the cycle of poverty and illiteracy within their families and communities.

    Please note:
    Bead colour and design may vary slightly from collar to collar.
