Pembetatu :: Triangle
In this moment of crisis, your support couldn’t be needed more. Purchasing from us right now goes towards the continued employment of our team of 150 people here in Tanzania. We sadly don’t have a rainy day fund to help us through something like Covid-19, as we put everything we have into our team to maintain fair wages, medical assistance, pensions, etc. So to continue being able to do that, we really need your help.
As all of us around the world have been brushing up on our hand washing techniques, so have our team of beaders. We have ensured that all pieces are being handmade with careful sanitation to ensure your safety and the safety of our team.
Due to lockdowns around the world, delivery may be slightly delayed. We ask that you bear with us as we endeavour to get your order into your hands as quickly as possible.
We sincerely thank you for your support.

We have many busy hands on deck who do their best to get your order to you as fast as possible.
ONE OF A KIND
Your chosen piece is 100% handmade by one of our 120 Maasai beaders in Tanzania, so no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. With different hands crafting each piece, we celebrate the uniqueness of the slight irregularities and differences between them, truly making them one of a kind.
