This handmade black cord & recycled bomb shell bracelet is made by a woman artisan in Cambodia who has lost her vision in an acid attack in 1999. Surviving one of the most brutal times in Cambodia's history, with some knitting skills in hand, this unemployed blind artisan has hand-crafted this bracelet. Also, the center brass piece of this bracelet is made by home-based producers using recycled bomb shell war remains.
To support these artisans in training, production and marketing their crafts in the global market, we are working with an organization in Cambodia who is also dedicated to making a change in the lives of home-based producers and has a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. With this collaboration, we are making sure that these producers have access to regular work/employment, fair wages, education for their children, and future stability for themselves, their families and communities.
This bracelet expands and contracts by pulling both knotted ends.
