Your piece will take on the signature Sidai aesthetic of a glass beaded flexible cuff (either wide or narrow). This keeps your piece authentic; reflecting traditional Maasai beadwork in Tanzania.
The technique used to create your design is one of the most traditional, well known Maasai beading techniques. We have dubbed it the ‘Warrior’ technique, as it is typically used to create jewelry for Maasai warriors.
The technique uses recycled thread salvaged from old grain sacks, which is hand spun and repurposed into an extremely strong thread for beading. Using this thread, rows upon rows of beads will form your piece.
The bracelet is finished with our adjustable signature closure. Soft leather lace finished with a recycled aluminium bead.
