In her travels to Nairobi, our founder wanted to share a bit of Kenyan culture with you through handmade accessories. After receiving numerous compliments on Instagram about the beaded Maasai bangles she donned, Krystle re-visited the local Maasai Market to curate a small collection for our Nairobi Pop-Up Shop.
Each pair of beaded bangles were thoughtfully hand-selected by Krystle and combined for a unique color-pairing that reflects her vibrant style.
Along with the bangles, there will be a selection of Lillian & Joan exclusive handmade Safari-inspired turban headbands as well as African-printed fabric tassel earrings available in the pop-up shop!
KENYAN CULTURAL FACT: The Maasai are an indigenous ethnic group in Africa of semi-nomadic people settled in Kenya and northern Tanzania who have made beaded jewelry for many years. The group initially used materials such as copper, brass, wood, bone and clay then during the late 19th Century started using glass beads available via the European trade. To this day the Maasai continue to use glass beads in the creation of their necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry.
