Handmade by artisans at the co-op in Kenya's Rift Valley.  In 2001 a terrible drought persisted after several years of ruin and devastation to the pasture lands and the Maasai's livelihood disappeared as their cattle died. Philip and Katy Leakey, who live among the Maasai in the Kenyan bush, wanted to help their neighbors and provide them with work opportunities without changing their culture.  The wood beads are crafted from naturally fallen acacia wood, protecting the environment while giving economic opportunity to the Maasai.
