This recycled paper bracelet features red orange paper beads, individually hand-rolled by women artisans in Kenya. The beads are coated with a non-toxic lacquer that makes them water-resistant so they won’t fall apart if they get a few rain drops on them. The bracelet is on a sturdy elastic cord and is accented with a silver-plated giraffe charm.
5% of the price will benefit animal conservation worldwide through our partner Acacia Creations.
The Peacebomb Story Wrap Bracelet is cast from re-purposed military grade aluminum including Vietnam War-era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminum scrap. The engraved tag says "Dropped + Made in Laos" and turns the destruction of war into something beautiful - a reminder that we can sow hope, not war.
As part of the "Buy Back the Bombs" movement, your purchase provides fair employment for artisans in Laos and also helps clear landmines so families can safely travel around and farm their land. This bracelet = 2 square meters cleared!
