This piece is intricately handcrafted with delicate beads and fiber that make it gracefully elegant, almost fragile yet bold, bright and colorful. In it’s own way it’s the piece that makes the outfit and makes you stand out from the crowd.
Our tassel and fluid designs are handmade by Mwende and her artisan group. She is a single mother to seven teenage children. Her income goes to educate her children. Mwende and her group of mothers are from the Kamba tribe of eastern Kenya. Unlike the Maasai, the Kamba use beading string instead of beading wire. This creates flowing tassel designs that dance to motion.
