The vibrant Maasai Markets across the country, are truly a festival of colour and form. They offer opportunities for handicraft shoppers to buy some of the rich collection of African arts and crafts; Commonly referred to as Curios, at reasonably low prices. These Open Markets attract throngs of locals and tourists alike looking for unique handicrafts to beautify their households, themselves or as gifts to friends and family. Curios, Baskets, Kikoys, and Bead work among many other interesting African handicrafts adorn the ever-crowded markets in the CBD as well as Counties. However, local traders especially at the county levels have lost the battle of selling their wares to big restaurants, fashion lines, and crafty traders in the CBD. This is due to the inability to mass produce a culture that has thrived, grown and matured across generations. Maasai Curios have been overpriced depending on the market position and this is often a put-off to both local and foreign customers. This platform seeks to work with hundreds of craftsmen and women dealing with Maasai Crafts, as a pilot project to identify areas that would enrich both the local trader and the communities at large. We are hopeful of partnerships with relevant Government and Non Governmental Institutions such as Kenya Tourism Board, Exports Processing Council, Development Funders, Foundations and County Governments to promote #Buy Kenyan, Build Kenya Empowerment Initiative. Disclaimer: We neither purport to own the Maasai Brand nor are planning to infringe on the Kenyan people’s culture. Our goal is to see that fair trade exists, products are priced fairly, customers shop more conveniently and traders get paid more securely but above all, to see that our rich culture is preserved and not abused.
