About Us

Alaiyo Waistbeads is an African waistbead retailer operating out of Los Angeles, California. An age-old holistic adornment, the waistbead is a bit of ancient technology which acts all at once as lingerie, a scale, waist and weight management as well as a mindfulness tool.


Alaiyo Waistbeads are made by hand using high-quality glass seed beads and a proprietary non- elastic braided nylon. They are available for purchase online, at the Alaiyo Studio in Southern California, and at various pop-up shops across the nation.
