A trio of colorful strands delight the senses with a symphony of color. A touch of the magnificence of the sweeping Kenyan plains, all for you.
Designed by Philip and Katy Leakey in the bush country region of Kenya, Zulugrass jewelry was created to provide work opportunities for their Maasai neighbors without adversely impacting the Maasai culture. Native long grasses are harvested one blade at a time, dried, cut to size, then dyed lovely hues. Using a tradition of superlative beadwork dating back generations, Maasai women string the the grass beads together with brilliant Czech crystals, creating attractive jewelry for you while bringing much needed income and opportunity to themselves, their families, and their community. The Leakey Collection will donate 100% of their profits from the sales of Beads for Learning bracelets to fund the salaries of local teachers.
