Maasai Beaded Hoop Earring Porcupine – Black & Gold
These beautifully designed statement earrings aim to celebrate and preserve Maasai beading techniques while elevating the traditional methods, giving them a contemporary aesthetic appeal.
Maasai women in Tanzania experience a lack of access to education and resources, and little power when it comes to decision-making. Sidai Designs collaborates with Maasai women, training them to produce unique, high quality beaded designs using the traditional techniques of their tribe. By having sustainable employment, their social status improves – enabling the freedom to make decisions, access to education for their children, and ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty. Empowering these women to have their own stream of income is one of the best ways to make a positive change while preserving important aspects of their culture, such as beadwork, for future generations.
