Did some research for a few stops near Nairobi to see the city and some wildlife and found this amazing gem.
Just a quick drive from the city, this amazing place houses a unique tourist and shopping experience. My friend and I were able to tour the bead factory with a guide. Seeing the mud, the hand rolling of various sized beads, all done by local men and women to truly support their community (how can you not love that!), then to see the beads be hand painted and then strung.
Shopping was great! Tons of beads, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and figurines. If you want- my friend asked to choose her beads personally and bring them home to make necklaces for her friends (what a cute party idea for close friends, cool craft and take home souvenir!)
Would I go back? Yes, I would gladly go back and support this great organization. Plus I found their products in other shops around Kenya but I would much rather go see the women and men who work on these amazing crafts themselves.
