Natural Porcelain and Desert Rose Zulugrass Bracelet Duet

TLC01A

  • This duet pairs one 7" Kenyan-made porcelain bracelet on elastic with one soft pink Zulugrass strand. Wear them together as a stacked bracelet or wear each piece individually.

    Zulugrass 26" single strands are made from sustainable, natural grass beads. Maasai artisans hand-dye the grass with colorfast, low-impact dyes. Strung on elastic interspersed with Czech glass beads, it can be worn as a bracelet, necklace, anklet, hair tie and more. Zulugrass is as creative as the individual who wears it! 



JOINING FORCES WITH THE LEAKEY COLLECTION

The Leakey Collection has focused on zulugrass bracelets and jewelry in Kenya since 2002. Their iconic grass beads are dyed with low-impact dyes and strung on durable elastic. The sale of their products contributes to wonderful work in East Africa, including creating employment for thousands of women, promoting health and hygiene, bringing clean water into homes, and mentoring young girls through school. 

Philip and Katy Leakey, founders of The Leakey Collection who live among the Maasai in East Africa, wanted to provide their neighbors with work opportunities. They came up with an imaginative idea to utilize the excellent beading abilities of the Maasai women by using a readily available, sustainable resource- GRASS- as the primary element.
