African Bangles –

HomeAboutTech & BusinessLIFESTYLEPhotography/FashionPOETRY Kenyan Story African Bangles June 17, 2016

African bangles bring out the authentic African touch that every community should embrace in promoting their culture and other ways of life. In Kenya, the Maasai community is notoriously known for their rich in culture and traditions that are never changed by globalization and tech advancement.


To promote our culture, a group of young models came up with amazing African bangles designs that can be worn by everybody in the world. The bangles are not choosy or target a specific group of individuals; they can be worn by the old and the young.

Last weekend I go a chance to hangout with some of the models and the experience was top notch. I got to learn many things about African brands and stuff about the modelling industry which is struggling to compete with other well regulated and designed platforms in the country. The models have these propositions and ideas that I believe can change the country in way or another. They believe in promoting our heritage as a country and using African-ism to bring social change.

I presume as a country we can promote and uplift our crippled African artsy culture. We need to buy our locally produced brands. This will go a long way in promoting our economy and sovereignty as a country. In addition, the world will view us in a different perspective. People in the diaspora will appreciate our ways and admire our stuff hence leading to a massive recognition.

The country has more than forty tribes, which means that we are rich in culture; if all the tribes go back to their roots, we can produce a masterpiece that will be appreciated by the whole world. The Maasai should not be the only tribe who appreciate their culture, other communities should also establish strong cultural practices and festivals.
