Maasai Beaded hoops

Regular price R 220.00

These hoops are a contemporary representation of the wooden round discs which were used to stretch the ear lobes of the Maasai people in Kenya. They are also known for their intricate and colourful beadwork which has been passed down for generations, representing cultural value, social status and age. 

When I first visited Kenya I was instantly drawn to the amazing and complex beading which can be found on sandals, earrings, sculptures and homeware.
