Beautifully hand-beaded by a Masai women's collective in Kenya. Made with Kenyan leather, glass beads and a brass buckle.
Each color of these beaded works represents a symbolic value in Maasai culture: traditionally white signifies purity, blue symbolizes energy and represents the sky, green represents the land and health, yellow and orange represent hospitality and warmth, while black represents the people, and red, their bravery and strength.
Please note: each belt is individually handmade, so they may vary slightly from the image.
**Sizing notes: all the Muwa belts are 1" width. The length to the first hole on the mediums is 29"-30".
