Maasai Mini Beaded Wall Hanging
This beautifully beaded wall hanging was intricately crafted by the Maasai Mamas of Sidai Designs in Tanzania, East Africa. Each piece is made from glass beads woven together with thread salvaged from plastic grain sacks. The wall hanging is attached to a hand carved stick made from the same local wood that is used to make Maasai walking sticks. Sidai (pronounced SEED-EYE) means beautiful in Maa, the language of the Maasai people. Sidai Designs collaborates with Maasai women to create beaded objects that honor traditional craft techniques and indigenous knowledge, while exploring modern innovation and providing a sustainable source of income to these women artisans.
