The Mila Bracelet is a beautiful and bold statement piece with ethical origins.This is the perfect accessory to have on hand (no pun intended!) when you want to wear a bold look and share the story of Grain of Rice Project.
Made with love in Kenya ♥
These Mila Bracelets are made by artisans with Grain of Rice Project, a non-profit ministry that empowers artists and children living in the Kibera slum with the love of Christ by helping them become self-sufficient through employment, education, and skills training. Kibera is the largest slum in East Africa with more than 235,000 people living in a single square mile. Life in Kibera is difficult with no running water, open sewage and many surviving on less than $1 a day. Grain of Rice Project works to provide opportunities to people in Kibera to help them overcome some of their hardships. They strive to do small things to empower people that will add up to make a big difference in their lives and will in turn spill over and make a difference in the lives of others around them.
Ethically sourced Batik bone beads and recycled glass beads from Ghana are strung together with simple brass spacers to create this stunning bracelet. The batik technique gives this bracelet an elegant look and the elastic band provides a comfortable wear for most wrist sizes.
