Start small, dream big, change lives -- that's the way Global Girlfriend founder Stacey Edgar harnessed the power of fair trade to help women in poverty help themselves.
Our handwoven bracelets are made by a group of women working in Nuevo Montecristo, Guatemala. The group calls itself Nuevo Amaecer ("New Awakening") and the women believe each new order of the bracelets brings a new awakening, indeed. Group leader Blanca De La Rosa explains that with these orders, "We can dream bigger for ourselves, our families, and our community." These bracelets are a perfect gesture of friendship -- or a reminder to yourself to dream big and follow through!
- Waxed cotton, beads, & pewter charms
- Set of 5
- 7" L (17.8 cm)
- Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala
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!

November 8, 2013 - Adorable bracelets, love the messages
December 27, 2012 - I love the principles these bracelets encourage, and they're just plain beautiful. But 7" length really is 7", too small even to get my hand through. Gave them away. Good cause, so worth it as far as I'm concerned.
