These fun Dudes are made by the Wild Hope Artisans in Tanzania using beads and recycled flip flops. 

In April 2011, Fair Grounds visited the group and decided to bring back the beautiful beadwork from Maasai land in East Africa to the UK. The project provides income generation and encouragement to a growing group of talented local artists. Around one hundred women are involved in designing and creating innovative new products which preserve traditional art forms while appealing to the wider world. Transforming the lives of not only the women involved, but their families as well. The artisans are respected as leaders in their communities as they build homes, open shops, raise herds, feed and educate their children and give generously to community development. These women stand tall with integrity.
