Philip and Katy Leakey, who live among the Maasai, designed contemporary products that utilize the natural sustainable resources around them as well as the expert beading skills of the Maasai women.

Zulugrass has given the Maasai women a bridge to meet the economic challenges of a modern society while retaining their traditions and culture.
