This unique throw has been inspired by the Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania. With a timeless history steeped in tradition, these warriors of the great African savannah are recognized by the unique shape of the shield and matching symbolic headgear. The warrior is of great importance as a source of pride in the Maasai culture. To be a Maasai is to be born into one of the world’s last great warrior cultures. The cloth used to wrap around the body is called Shúkà, and the word Maasai means “the speaker of the language Maa.”
The Maasai Shuka is fully machine washable. We recommend machine wash your blanket on a cool, gentle cycle and line-drying to preserve the fibers and color for full care guide check out our full care guide here
