For centuries, beaded jewellery has been
a mark of beauty and prosperity among
the Maasai tribes of Eastern Africa.
Today Tanzania Maasai Women Art cele- brates the women’s skill, courage, warmth, elegance and story through the creation
of jewellery, combining traditional beadwork with Italian elegance.
Tanzania Maasai Women Art supports the beautiful beadwork jewellery of the women
in Mkuru, Northern Tanzania. Previously women generated their income from cutting trees, and making and selling charcoal. Tanzania Maasai Women Art recognizes the value of natural resources and the necessity for its protection. The development of this alternative micro enterprise protects the environment, at the same time creating
a stable and sustainable income source for the women.
