Accessories at Bakou
Introduction to MWA Jewellery
Maasai Women Art (MWA) is a social enterprise in Tanzania that creates the exquisite jewellery, beautifully handcrafted by the Maasai women of Mkuru. MWA was founded by Francesca Torri Soldini a senior lecturer at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.
The jewellery collection is a fusion of Italian flamboyancy and traditional Maasai Beading - a marriage of tradition and contemporary - designed in Italy by Francesca's design students. Their designs beautifully merge both worlds - are made in Tanzania. Each piece of MWA jewellery is exquisitely handcrafted by the Maasai women in Mkuru, Tanzania and sold in boutiques, galleries and retail establishments internationally in Switzerland, Italy, USA and Australia and now new to the UK at Bakou.
We have a large selection of other scarves and necklaces, some of which can be seen on our fabulous model, Natasa. Our collection is generally big and bold and constantly changing (prices start at £15). We also have some great bags and stunning Rosie Fox brooches which are so very on trend for Autumn.
