A single hand blown recycled glass bottle, handmade by people with disabilities in Tanzania. The bottle is wrapped with glass beads that have been handwoven by Maasai women, using thread from recycled grain sacks. 

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.

Your chosen piece is 100% handmade by one of the 120 Maasai beaders in Tanzania, so no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. With different hands crafting each piece, we celebrate the uniqueness of the slight irregularities and differences between them, truly making them one of a kind. 

Made with love in Tanzania.
