FEATURED PRODUCT - Wakami Earth Bracelets
 

Changing Women's Lives in Guatemala

Wakami Earth Bracelets are made by women in remote Guatemalan villages through a non-profit business program, which enables a woman to earn a steady income, empowers her to improve her family's life and her village. Wakami connects these village artisans with urban markets around the world. Wakami products are called messengers of connection--changing the lives of those who produce them and enriching the lives of those who wear them.Earth Bracelets are trendy, hip, earthy--and most of all--another example of people empowering other people.

 

Earth Bracelets 7 Strands Tell The Story

Each of the bracelet's 7 individual strands is related to an aspect of creation: earth, sun, stars, water, plants & animals, boys & girls, and the final loop:

"The Earth felt it had almost everything, but one last thing was missing: a CONNECTION between trees and plants and animals and people, and the Earth and the Sun, and the stars...and the water and the wind...The one thing that made EVERYTHING become ONE...and LOVE was created, CONNECTING everything!!"

The bracelets are woven and knotted by hand, using different techniques, each with either a button/loop closure or a sliding slip knot. The women use waxed string accented with various glass, plastic, and metal beads and charms. Wear all 7 strands together or in any combination you like. Each bracelet set comes with this "Story of Wakami" booklet, making it the perfect gift!
