The Leakey Collection
Zulugrass is the heart of The Leakey Collection, a simple yet coveted adornment that Maasai women craft from colorful dyed pieces of savanna grass and glass beads. Through the production and sale of Zulugrass, Maasai women build stronger, healthier families within their traditional lands. Zulu Grass is imported by Swahili, a member of the Fair Trade Federation, a group of like-minded companies and organizations that adhere to providing fair payment to workers in developing nations, educating artisans and workers to increase their potential for advancement, ensuring the rights of children, developing products and processes that protect and conserve the natural environment and promoting fair trade as the standard in commercial exchanges. Swahili is also a Shared Interest fair trade loan facility holder. As the world’s only 100% fair trade lender, the Shared Interest cooperative lent over 68 million pounds in 2019 to producers in 55 developing nations around the world.
