“Maasai Shield” Beaded Dog Collar
$46.00 – $115.00
The “Maasai Shield” beaded collar is Red, Black and White – matching the colors in the center of the Kenyan Flag. Random designs which usually include circles are on black leather. These hand-beaded collars from The Kenyan Collection® are the perfect choice for everyday use.
Made of either black or brown leather, the bead designs are hand-sewn into a layer of the leather, anchoring the beads every 3 to 4 beads for strength. An overlay of leather is added, glued and stitched to the backing for long-lasting comfort and durability. Each collar is hand finished with solid hand-cast buckles made from recycled brass.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to maintain the integrity of the Maasai tribe, we offer Maasai beaded products as custom items to ensure continued sustainability for the Maasai Mamas. Delivery may take up to 8 weeks.
A large stock list of products is maintained, however, from time to time your order might need to be produced in Kenya. We will send you an email typically within 72 hours to let you know if your order is currently unavailable. Orders that are in production in Kenya may take 1 to 8 weeks for delivery.

About our collar sizing: IMPORTANT: MEASURE YOUR DOG’S NECK AND ORDER CLOSEST TO THAT MEASUREMENT. For odd sizes, we suggest you round up to the next size. If you must use a current collar in ordering, then measure only the length from the beginning of the leather/material at the buckle end to the hole that fits or is used at the other end.
ABOUT THE ARTISANS – The Maasai Mamas
The Maasai are an ethnic group which inhabit southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. In the Maasai culture, their distinctive customs and dress sets them apart. Their beaded creations distinguish age, marital and their social status, in other words. By partnering with The Kenyan Collection, they’ve been able to earn a living and compete in the global marketplace. They live and work near their homes where they gather in small groups to share advice and stories. As the Mamas bead the leather provided to them, their one-of a kind designs are created for The Kenyan Collection.
