out of africa.
my friends dan and eszter rabin have a beautiful flat in san francisco’s eureka valley and i’ve shared it here before. but lately eszter’s been traveling to north tanzania and spending time with the masai tribes, working with the women there helping them to create sustainable employment using their existing beading skills to create beautiful jewelry. eszter’s sidai designs is non-profit organization supporting Maasai women by collaborating with them to create and market beaded jewelry based in traditional beading techniques that are infused with modern aesthetics — just have a look at the lovely lookbook and gallery.
and every time eszter comes home from one of her trips, she brings another piece of beautiful africa with her — from the rugs and throws, to unique wood carvings and sculptures, so i always enjoy a fresh look at how her travels have inspired new looks around their home. this time is no different. have a look at sidai designs and the wonderful work eszter and the women of the maasai tribes are making together. you can also follow along on eszter’s adventures in africa on her blog 7 miles below.
