This collection features ethical Maasai Jewellery pieces made in Tanzania by the social enterprises Sidai and Shanga.
Sidai Designs provides economic opportunity for Maasai women. They produce unique, high-quality beaded designs using the traditional techniques of their tribe. Their unique jewellery celebrates and preserves Maasai beading techniques while elevating their methods, giving them a contemporary aesthetic appeal.
All Sidai Maasai jewels are sustainable and ethical. Uniquely handcrafted with glass beads and recycled plastic boning weaved together with recycled thread.
Shanga means “Beads” in Swahili. Shanga celebrates Tanzanian culture and provides a safe, consistent and loving environment for Tanzanians with disabilities so they can produce inspiring Maasai jewellery from upcycled materials.
