16 Aug A new concept – The Great British countryside
This is something we have been working on for a while. Having found a new, highly skilled Maasai beading team, we wanted to create a beaded belt which combined the beading skills of Kenya with the beauty and traditions of the British countryside.
We are both unashamedly lovers of anything rural and we not only wanted to celebrate this but also produce something people would want to wear.
We sent silhouettes to Rose in Kenya and she got to work straightaway. The results are quite stunning. To make a Maasai beaded belt with animals on it is so difficult and yet they triumphed first time.
It’s early days as we haven’t created these in any sort of numbers yet but we are very confident they will be a hit. Watch this space!
