We don't often come across decorative collars that catch our attention, but these hand beaded collars made in Kenya are one of our favorites.
The beading is done by Maasai "mamas" working in their home area. By meeting with their designer weekly to receive materials, the artisans can earn a living while maintaining their rural and more traditional lifestyle.
Beads are hand sewn in leather anchoring every 4-5 beads back into the leather. A second piece of leather glued and stitched on the back to protect the beading and make them durable and comfortable for the pet. Buckles are solid, hand-cast brass. These collars are not just beautiful, they are well crafted and made to be enjoyed.
Each collar is uniquely made, and exact colors and patterns may vary slightly from the images shown.
