Large Narrow Maasai Beadwork Dog Collar
Maasai beadwork collar 1.9cm wide, length 47 to 50cm.
Maasai women in cooperative groups handcraft each individual collar, sewing beads onto the highest quality leather and fitting with solid brass recycled hand-cast buckles & clasps. Each collar is a unique design and they are available in three different colourways - browns, turquoise & browns and bright colours. Beautiful and hardwearing, suitable for wet weather and swimming - using a suitable saddle soap or leather conditioner.
Our collars are measured from the second, third and fourth holes excluding the first and fifth, to allow for longer term changes in neck size. Each collar is unique with its own individual pattern and colour way.
Please order using the colour way and pattern number. Can't see what you are looking for? Email us with the neck measurement in cm, the colourway you are interested in and we will photograph the relevant stock.
Traditional handmade beaded jewellery is an important part of Maasai culture. Traditionally the beadwork is made by women but is worn by both sexes and has important cultural significance. The beadwork an individual wears reflects their age and social status.
