Description

Why We Love This

Our hearts are warmed by the detail and finish on this navy glass and recycled brass strand of beadsóand tag that reads: MADE WITH LOVE. Every necklace made and sold impacts a life elsewhere on this planet.

Story

Endito, translated in the tribal Maa language, means daughter. This simple, colorful necklace is inspired by the jewelry worn by the young girls-the daughters-in the Maasai tribe. They are the Enditos. Its beauty can be found in its simplicity, but also in the maker’s efforts to lift the burden of economic hardship for the Maasai people. Like everything Sidai Designs crafts, this necklace helps preserve the cultural identity and beading traditions of the Maasai tribe and creates sustainable incomes for urban Maasai women.
