Kenya bone (from carved cow bones), also called Batik bone beads, are wax-resist and dyed in various patters.

Most modern bone beads are made from cow or sheep or camel bones and are a byproduct of the food industry. In Kenya, skilled craftsmen carve and shape recycled bones, then use a wax resist batik process to create African designs.
