A happy helping washable bracelet. Happy because it is cool and elegant, soothing on your skin and kind to the earth. Made completely from plants where the recycled cotton threads were dyed with extracts from plants without the use of harsh chemicals. Happy because it was hand woven by a self-taught balinese woman (her story of love below) who can't read and write but can weave with stunning quality and speed. Helping because it helps elevate Serni's livelihood and helps us with our school mission.
100% plant dyed recycled cotton
Colors were extracted and mixed by hand in Bali from: Blues - strobilanthes cusia leaves. Yellows - mango leaves. Reds - sappan wood. Browns - coconut husk. Blacks - ketapang leaves. Greens - strobilanthes cusia and mango leaves
A Love Story of Giving
In January 2021, we met Serni at a beach entrance expertly weaving synthetic wool bracelets with exquisite designs and hoping to sell but there were no people around due to the pandemic. Serni can't read or write but oh my my she can imagine designs and execute with speed. She lost her housekeeping job during the pandemic but gained a fighting spirit. As a single woman and the sole provider of her aging parents and blind uncle, she cannot give up. The pride and happiness of her family watching her weave for us using our plant dyed recycled cotton threads, her first organic threads, were priceless.
