OUR IMPACT

Maasai beaders’ market access is often reliant on travelers looking for an affordable one-off tourist buy. Limited to locally available materials, designs tend to mirror one another which makes it challenging to establish sales. 

Sidai Designs enables Maasai women to create products with new materials and designs, that appeal to a modern and socially conscious buyer. Sidai Designs also grants access to a previously unattainable global market. 

Demand from this international market for our luxurious, high-quality pieces continuously supports our 120 Maasai women beaders. By extension we have supported hundreds of Maasai people.
