Since ancient times, traders have crossed Africa in search of gold, salt, minerals, and even slaves. The currency was spices and most often, beads. Beads were easy to transport, attractive to local people and became regular currency. Throughout history the people of Africa have used beads to decorate themselves, as they continue to do today.

Beads from these ancient routes often have symbolic meaning in African cultures and societies, and many are still made in traditional ways. Today, African trade beads are made into modern items to bring new life into items with significant history.
