Supporting Communities

Each piece purchased from the Weaving Studio has a positive impact on the Amboseli community. Traditionally, Maasai women stay at home while the men work, but these Mamas use their creativity and skill to help provide for themselves and their families. Inspired by their home and the nature around them, the Mamas create beautiful woven pieces giving them a sense of pride and independence while celebrating their culture and country.
