Product Description

Samburu is a tribe found in northern Kenya in the Rift Valley. Very similar to the Masai, beading is one of their passions. The knowledge how to make beads and patterns has been handed down from one generation to the next. The Samburu women spend much of their time making jewellery, necklaces, anklets and bracelets with coloured beads; in the past they used coloured seeds, pieces of old tires, copper, brass and iron wire instead of beads.

The colours have a specific meaning, white stands for purity and health because it is associated to cow’s milk; black means discomfort; yellow and orange are the colours of hospitality, while red means danger, courage and unity.
