Waist belt

The pastoralist peoples of Northwest Kenya use aluminium solely for body ornamentation as it is very malleable and ductile. This white metal is cheaper than copper to obtain, and is as shiny as silver but doesn’t tarnish. This belt is fashioned from iron wire lengths that are covered in aluminium wire thread.
