- You will receive the exact purse pictured above.
- This charming purse features a beaded “bow” on each side, where the long shoulder strap attaches. The strap passes through a loop on each side of the lid, so the lid stays attached to the purse when it is opened.
- The weaving group that produces these glass beads on wire ‘gems’ is located in central Kenya. They are members of the Maasai and Kikuyu ethnic communities.
- Patterns are laid out on paper and then painstakingly translated to the woven object. Wire is manipulated with small pliers as the baskets are woven.
- Dimensions are approximate, but we do strive to get the measurements accurate within 1/2 inch. Please review the size of this item carefully using a ruler or tape measure before your purchase. See our Shopping FAQs for more information.
The Maasai and Kikiyu people continue a long history as some of the foremost bead workers in Africa. The skills to create beadwork has been passed down through many generations and these cultures are famous throughout the world for their beadwork.
