Traditionally symbolizing beauty and prosperity, beadwork has held an essential place in Maasai culture and is typically passed down through the generations by women (as many important cultural traditions are).
At Sidai, their mission is to preserve this age-old Maasai tradition through sustainable employment for Maasai women. Sidai Designs enables Maasai women to create products with new materials and designs and also grants access to a previously unattainable global market.
