The Maasai Shuka vest is a cross-over piece to be worn: over bare skin, as a vest, over a shirt, or over a turtleneck sweater. Keep it to hand when the season changes because it's perfect to wear in the spring, too.
Maasai Shuka is a strong and sturdy fabric traditionally used by the Maasai shepherds of Tanzania and Kenya. It has become one of the symbols of Maasai culture, despite its origins from the English colonial kilts. Endelea’s collection in Maasai Shuka is made in collaboration with MIPI (Maasai Intellectual Property Initiative), an initiative committed to defend and protect Maasai cultural rights in the world.
Designed in Italy and made with passion in Tanzania by Faith.
According to the Maasai people, green is the color of nature that gives life.
