This beaded belt is beautifully hand crafted in Kenya by the Maasai tribe. The impeccable leather craft is done by the Maasai Mamas and takes on average 2 days to complete just one medium sized belt.
All materials are locally sourced in Kenya from the top grain leather, to the beads, to the belt buckles. The buckles we use are locally sourced and hand casted by local artisans using recycled brass. The beads we use are made from 100% glass – not plastic!
Maasai beadwork is a traditional Maasai craft and art-form dating back hundreds of years. Over 50% of all profits go towards our 'Mara' project which supports conservation in the Maasai Mara of southern Kenya, where the Maasai tribe originate, helping the coexistence of the Maasai people and the wildlife.
The narrow belts are 3cm in width. The belt size is in relation to the waist measurement and will generally fit a larger trouser size. Ie: If you wear 34" trousers, you should buy a 36" Koy belt - see the size guide for further detail.
