Handmade Woven Grass Bracelets - Set of 3
We are proud to offer you our Handmade Woven Grass Bracelets, each of which has been handcrafted and fairly traded by the women of the Atacora region of West Africa. These finely woven bracelets look just as attractive after a month of steady use as they do upon initial purchase-- a tribute to the fine craftsmanship.
Wild Timuti straw rope was a traditional craft of this area, and the artisans have mastered the creation of sturdy products from woven grass. Virtually impossible to obtain outside of Africa, these fine bracelets are proof that the art has not been lost.
Our bracelets come in a bright assortment of colors, and are sold in groups of three. Please allow us to choose three vivid, unique designs for you. Flexible bracelets can bend to fit over most wrists; they measure approximately 7 to 8.5". If bracelet is difficult to fit over hand, soap may help. Bracelet will shrink to fit once worn in water.
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!
