Masai Mara Beaded Rainbow

£17.00£21.00

The Masai Mara Beaded Rainbow range of products are all completely and utterly unique as they are handmade especially for us, in the Masai Mara.

There’s a story behind this: We have family in Kenya. A lovely lady called Magdalene Waithera, who is a Masaai Tribeswoman, is an old friend of the family. Even in the present day, if a woman from a Masaai Tribe is either divorced, separated or widowed, she is deemed Marginalised. Even if it is through no fault of her own. Life then becomes very difficult for her, especially if she has children to feed. Now, our friend Magdalene has a heart of gold and has set up a project teaching Marginalised mothers the traditional art of Ushirika Beading and Leatherwork, giving them an opportunity to earn their own money and support their children. My lovely Aunt goes directly to Magdalene to place our orders, pay and collect these beautiful items. This is the provenance of the authenticity of our Masai Beaded Range.

This is a project we are proud to support and have included a photo of Magdalene, along with a copy of the first letter she wrote us. She is an inspirational woman.

The Rainbow range of items are all based on a similar pattern and will all comprise the same coloured beads in various combinations, however as every single bead is hand threaded and hand stitched, no two items are completely the same. These dog collars, dog leads and matching belts for their humans are all made to an exceptional quality and are impressively durable.

We aim to process all orders on the same day or next day, but no later than within 2-3 working days. Postage will be with either Royal Mail (first class) for any smaller items or via courier (next day delivery) for any larger items. If you’re not going to be home for the courier, it is possible to leave a note for them advising of a safe place to leave your parcel.

We have recently added a new local delivery/pick-up option, which is to include anywhere nearby (within 15 miles of) Withybrook, Lutterworth, Market Harborough or anywhere in-between. Choose the appropriate option from the dropdown menu at checkout.

It is not just our pets that are important to us. The environment is also pretty high on the priority list too! With that in mind, we send most of our products out in the British made mailing bags made from Sugar Cane, for the extra large items we use a stronger (also British made) recycled plastic mailer bag, eco Jiffy bags or cardboard boxes. To reduce wastage, we do our best to up-cycle and recycling boxes, packaging and bubblewrap so will often use these to pack/protect your purchases. Gift wrapping (at a reasonable additional cost) can be arranged by email or giving us a call.
