This jewelry was born from an extraordinary, bold, and creative idea to by empowering Masssai women through economic partnership. This cultural fusion of chic Italian design and rich Maasai beading not only preserves the indigenous Maasai culture by empowering women through innovative entrepreneurship but also helps stop the deforestation of Kilimanjaro's ancient forests by replacing deforestation with artisanship.
The story behind this jewelry: Maasai women from the villages around Kilimanjaro needed a steady source of income to support their families without being separated from their children. An artisan cooperative was created, using designs created by the students at the Instituto di Design in Milan, Italy, ensuring that Maasai materials and production techniques were maintained. Sales from this unique collection have provided these artisans with steady employment. Paid fair wages while working on tribal lands, the Maasai women are gaining independence and access to food, medicine and education. Your purchase of this jewelry directly contributes to creating better lives for the Maasai women, their families and communities
