KAZURI BEADS TOUR EXPERIENCE IN NAIROBI WITH AFRICANMECCA
Kazuri in Kiswahili means “small and beautiful”, a well-deserved name for the handcrafted jewelry you find at Kazuri Beads, located near the Karen Blixen Museum at the base of the Ngong Hills. Started in 1975 to help support single mothers, Kazuri Beads provides employment opportunities to local communities and, today, more than 300 Kenyan women work for the organization. The entire process for creating the jewelry is done by hand and starts with shaping the beads that are then kiln-fired, glazed and fired a second time before being hand-painted and strung into necklaces and bracelets. Because each bead is hand-crafted and painted, no two beads are alike, making each piece of Kazuri jewelry a one-of-a-kind creation with an organic character derived from the personal trademark craftsmanship of the Kenyan women. During your tour, you watch the women shape, paint and string the beads, and you can even shop for your own unique piece of this intricate and beautiful Kenyan art form. Kazuri Beads are available in rich colors that remind you of African bush and wildlife, as well as the native peoples, and the styles are named after areas, tribes and features to reflect the incredible and diverse beauty found in Kenya. A trip to Kazuri with AfricanMecca is offered in a combination with a visit to the Giraffe Center and Karen Blixen Museum.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
