The Samburu are a tribe in north-central Kenya. Samburu girls and women wear distinctive beaded necklaces called mporros. These necklaces are stiff or ridged rather than relaxed and flowing. Social status is identified by the number of necklaces worn. This Samburu Style Choker is a modern version handmade with glass beading in intricate rows of orange and red backed with thick leather and a tie closure. Made in Kenya.
