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 this bag in her own creative style which she hopes you will enjoy for many years to come.

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

AMAZING VIDEO – Maasai Yoga & Meditation DVD

Traveling several hours on rough roads through northern Tanzania, pioneering Dr. Tanya Pergola and Maasai elder-healer Lekoko Ole Sululu arrived in a stunning location in the heart of Maasailand. A place in the African bush where nature is fully alive and truly inspiring. To create this program, Dr. Tanya combined her decade long apprenticeship with African traditional healers together with her teachings as a yoga, meditation and well-being instructor. With beautiful music provided by respected South African musician Pops Mohamed, you can use this program daily. Immerse yourself in the healing movements, sights and sounds of nature as you enjoy an all-levels yoga practice and a meditation that takes you on a safari in consciousness.
