Seeing Both Maasai'des

December 15, 2017

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Steve finds that visiting friends is the best way to experience local life in a new place. In southern Kenya, his friendship with a Maasai chief opened the door to a warm and welcoming community…

And the exchange goes both ways. After visiting chief Joseph to learn about life in Kenya, Steve turned the tables—inviting the chief and his wife to come learn about life in the US too.

In the spirit of spreading this colorful cultural exchange…

 

Steve and the chief set their Maasai’ghts on bringing back a traditional Maasai fabric to open the door to you too.

Here's to seeing both Maasai'des and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

P.P.S. Plus a few more fabrics found by travelers who set their Maasai'ghts on other cultures…

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
