Kenyan Collection beaded dog collars and leashes were born out of a desire to help prove Africa can compete. They are unique, one of kind, made by hand and carry a lot of love.
Beads are hand sewn in leather anchoring every 4-5 beads back into the leather. A second piece of leather is glued and stitched on the back for comfort and durability. Buckles are solid, hand-cast brass. Not just a pretty collar – these are made to be enjoyed.
With 50% of the population living in poverty (less than $1,500 per year) and 25% of the population unemployed, this collectiong gives Kenyans the opportunity to work and improve their lives without relying on development aid and donations.
Drawing on their rich cultural heritage of beading and working with their hands, they developed this incredible line of beaded leather dog collars and leads. Acknowledging their inherent ability to turn single beads into a form of art which tells a story, the The Maasai tribe do the design work; therefore no two collars are alike.
