Description

The Maasai Shuka is worn by the Maasai people of East Africa.  The Maasai are a semi-nomadic people inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and are famous for their reputation as fearless warriors. The Maasai Shuka, along with colourful beaded necklaces and spear are the main identifying factors of the Maasai. Typically red with black strips, although other colours do feature, the Shuka is known to be durable and thick, protecting the Maasai from harsh weather. With a few theories about the origin of the Shuka, the most logical is that the Shuka was brought by Scottish missionaries during colonial era hence the resemblance to Scottish plaid or tartan pattern.
