Our Story

WHAT ARE WAIST BEADS?

Believe it or not, the beauty of waist beads is not only served by their looks... they actually hold many purposes. 

- Waist beads originated from ancient African culture. When you look at tribes like the Masaai Tribe in Kenya, that follow traditions from 100yrs ago...you’ll notice dozens of intricately designed beading wrapped around each warrior and woman of the tribe. With an organic lifestyle of no cost, this often serves as their source of income among tourists.

-  In most areas of Africa where poverty levels are highly impacted.. women’s sex education, and resources such as birth control or pregnancy tests are completely inaccessible. Waist beads have culturally been used to determine and track pregnancies. As the baby grows, the waist beads move higher up the body. It’s beautiful witnessing where your waist beads have previously been and currently are post pregnancy.

- Weight loss! TASWIRA’s bead sets come in 3 different sizes! Where you can wear multiple sizes at once, OR may switch out sizes when transitioning on a weight loss journey. This also applies to tracking bloating throughout the day! 

- Lastly, waist beads serve as the most feminine accessory that you may wear at ALL times. Which is what makes our designs so special.
