Ethical & Empowering Bracelet

Item # 36058
No longer available

Traditionally dyed pieces of bone linked around your wrist elevate this dynamic bracelet to an international work of art, serving to connect you to the lives of women artisans a world away. An exotic addition to your jewelry collection, this stretch bracelet represents a rich tradition of Kenyan crafts.

Handcrafted by a group of artisans in the semi-arid region of Kenya's eastern province -- where the sparse rainfall creates conditions of abject poverty. Dedicated to bringing positive change to their lives, the women from the community generate a primary source of income with jewelry created in group workshops, or woven textiles created in an artisan's home. In both homes and workshops, an emphasis is placed on fair principles and good working conditions.

  • Stars, Domino or Wave design
  • Dyed bone ethically sourced from water buffalo that have died of natural causes
  • On elastic, allowing it stretch to fit most wrists
  • 1" W (2.5 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Kenya

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
