Customers tell us these are the highest quality and most unique beaded collars they have ever seen. The beading is done by Maasai "mamas" working in their home area. By meeting with their designer weekly to receive materials, the artisans can earn a living while maintaining their rural and more traditional lifestyle. Averaging one collar per day, the mamas create these original, one-of-a-kind designs. Our collars run large. To avoid a return we ask that you measure your dogs neck and order that size or the one closest to that measurement.
