Handmade Leather and Maasai Bead Bookmark

These are one of a kind of bookmarks made in conjunction with Peris and Eunice, two women of the Maasai tribe in Nairobi, and the men of the Kibera Slums who made the charms.

I met Peris and her sister, Eunice while visiting Nairobi in November of 2018. My heart was filled as I learned the art of their beadwork while hearing her story of mutilation, assault and HIV. She overcame it all. I was overwhelmed and couldn't wait to include share her art and story with the world. I added charms made from the men of Victorious VCG, a group of artisans who hand craft pieces in the Kibera area of Nairobi.

All of these bookmarks are obviously one of a kind and can not be duplicated.

Materials: genuine leather, thread, maasai beads
Length: 12 inches (cut to the length you desire) + metal ring with charm
Width: 0.25 inches
