and you know we love bracelets with a mission (again, see Bhalo). so it follows that we’re giving big hearts to Same Sky.
Same Sky employs HIV+ women (who are also survivors of the Rwandan genocide) to make these glass-bead bracelets, all fair-trade, socially-responsible, and good for us.
my favorites are the fabric wraps, crocheted from Rwandan textiles and named after popular songs (popular, at least, on my iPod):
at first I was trying to decide which one to buy, but at only $40 for the fabric wraps, and to support such a meaningful endeavor, I think I’ll just get a few. and they’ll look awesome layered, too.
