Handcrafted in the village of Mkonoo, Tanzania, the design is modeled after the traditional bag Maasai women used to carry water. The leather is sourced from local cattle in East Africa after providing people with an important food source. A Maasai woman has hand-beaded each bag in her own creative style so no two bags are the same. You will enjoy your one-of-a-kind Maasai Leather Bag for years as it is very durable.

Your purchase of this handbag provides much needed income to the women of the village so that they can help support their children.
