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.

About our collar sizing: (For best results, if you are unsure of the fit, measure your dog’s neck and send that number in the comments section so we can confirm you have selected the correct size.

8” to 10” collars are ½” wide
11” to 14” collars are ¾” wide
16” to 24” collars are 1” wide

Lurcher style collars are 2” wide in the middle tapering to ¾” at both ends and come in sizes 14” to 22”
Leads are 42" long and ¾” wide. (Leads are not recommended for dogs that pull or are over 50 pounds.) Our sizes reflect the measurement from the end of the leather at the buckle end to the center hole at the other end (some manufacturers include the buckle in their measurement but we do not which means your dog may take a smaller size in our line).
Beads are hand sewn in leather anchoring every 4-5 beads back into the leather. A second piece of leather is glued and stitched on the back for comfort and durability. Buckles are solid, hand-cast brass.
Not just a pretty collar – these are made to be enjoyed. We offer a one-year guarantee with normal wear and tear but the reality is we have customers with collars 4-8 years old..

The designs are one of a kind on the leather color you choose. Some have random designs, others with medallions of solid or mixed colors. Because the availability changes, go ahead and pick your bag style and leather color and we will send you photos of the special options currently available:

 

 

Maasai Unlined Shoulder Bag: This unlined bag is approximately 17” wide x 12” long. Length of straps can be adjusted by simply tying the straps at various lengths. The inspiration for this design comes from small pouches Maasai and Samburu wear around their waists to carry small items. Years ago it was used to carry trading beads

 

 

Rectangular Shoulder Pouch: This is the perfect bag to carry a few crucial things in for a night out or as a convenient pouch for travelers. There is a magnetic closure on this bag. Length of the straps can be adjusted by simply tying the straps at various lengths.

Fishing Box Collection
This collection of flies was created to solve the challenge of finding a special gift for those in your life who are passionate about fishing. 30 flies (2 each of 15 patterns) are tied on Daichi hooks and nestled into a handmade banana fiber box. One of the fly patterns is from Africa. Inside the lid is a lighthearted call to fishing world-wide (especially in Kenya where you have to keep an eye out for elephants). The box is decorated on the top with a fish shaped batik bone on leather patch.

Carved Wooden Bird Mobiles
Each bird mobile has 3 strings of 4 birds each with one bird perched on top of a natural twig. They are carved from trimmings of jacaranda wood found on tea plantations outside of Nairobi. The artisan has included one African bird on each mobile as his special message to you “Karibu Kenya” (welcome to Kenya!). These are magical. We find real birds sitting on the mobile swaying in the breeze, perhaps chatting with the Kenyan birds.
