Style and Colour Choices:

We sell our products via “home parties”. The number and type of beads can be selected according to the specification required for the sale. The products will be sold to you at a wholesale price (not listed here), and airmail shipping will be charged. The retail prices listed below are merely SUGGESTIONS of what they generally sell for. It would be appreciated if some of the profits could be returned to Bambanani for future development. The profits could also be used to support a local non-profit cause of your choice.
NATURAL: the rolled paper or fabric beads are in their natural state: the colour tones reflect the material itself and will vary from item to item. Select from white, earth tones, green or blue tones. The product is varnished for protection. Order with or without seeds between beads.
JUST SEEDS: We also offer a necklace made only from local seeds and beads.
PAINTED: the beads will be uniform in colour and varnished for protection. Select from white, yellow, green, blue, pink or red. The product is varnished for protection. Order with or without seeds between beads.
DYED BEADS: will be somewhat uniform in colour tones, yet the natural variations within the paper bead will be visible. Choose from yellow, pink, green, or blue.
