What do the Maasai colors stand for?

Red, for example, signifies danger, ferocity, bravery, strength, and especially unity, because it is the color of the blood of the cow that is slaughtered when the community comes together in celebration.

Blue is important because it represents the sky which provides water for the cows.

Green is important because it represents the land which grows food for the cattle to eat. Green also represents the health of the Maasai community because there is a local plant called olari which grows tall and plentiful, as the Masai hope they will too.

The gourds that hold the milk that are offered to visitors are colored orange, and so this is the color of hospitality.


Yellow also suggests hospitality because it is the color of the animal skins on guest beds.

Because white is the color of milk, which comes from a cow, considered by the Maasai as a pure and holy animal, white represents purity. White also represents health, because it is milk that nourishes the community.

Black represents the color of the people but more importantly the hardships we all go through in life. It suggests that difficult times occur with everyone because those difficulties are part of the same, natural sequence of life.

I LOVE the necklaces and crown I got. They are high quality beads, string/wire, and backing. I expected for a decent price for it to be a little flimsy but its not at all. Thank you so much for this it is absolutely beautiful! :)

Loved my set.They arrived way before I expected. The colours are exactly what the picture portrays. Mercy even ended up giving me a free crown because I had concerns about the one I originally paid for. I will shop here again!!

Beautiful job on my custom bridal jewelry set! Nicely made and it goes well with my wedding colors. The seller was great to work with and the shipping from Kenya to the US was a lot faster than I expected.
