Handblown and Beaded Orkuma Bottle
Add a delightful element of artistry and whimsy to your home with these handblown glass bottles, hand beaded by Maasai women in Tanzania, working with Sidai Designs. The name Orkuma refers to the 'Talking Stick', as these bottles hold the same shape as this ancient tool of communication still used today by the Maasai tribe. By purchasing this item, you help to provide Maasai women with a living wage, allowing them to care for their families and help provide regular social programs on health, civil rights, and life skills. Choose from the different colors and black and white patterns available. These recycled bottles, with glass beads measure around 8" tall and 3" wide, although due to the handmade nature of these bottles, sizes may vary.
