This set of 3 bracelets in mixed metals is made by Have Hope, an artisan group based in Kenya whose story we have shared many times over. These women depend on you. These women depend on world-changing Fair Trade purchases as a means to provide for their family. This bracelet set means so much more than a beautiful accessory to pair with your Fall wardrobe. The creation of this set of 3 bracelets provide food, housing, and education. These hand-rolled paper beads mean women in a slum in Kenya can be paid in full for dignified work. The creation of these set of pewter, brass, gray, and saddle for our Color of Hope | Fall 2019 Line, brought joy, smiles, and grateful laughter from a strong group of women whose lives have been forever changed. These women are fearless, these women know their stories have value, because you provide them with dignified jobs.
The women of Have Hope in Kenya hand-rolled each paper bead from carefully selected sheets of saddle brown paper. They cut each strand of gray leather lace and place it into brass caps sourced locally in Kenya. They then string together each seed bead and paper bead to create this set of 3 bracelets in mixed metals that goes from their hands to your wrist.
