Bracelet | Atitlan LOVE | White & Red
Our Atitlan LOVE bracelets hail from the colorful villages surrounding beautiful Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Access to opportunities and support along the way has allowed the artisans to invest (on average) 90% of their wages back into their families: these women are more likely to send their daughters to school, to have improved health, and to become catalysts for positive change within their communities.
As if this look-good-feel-good collection wasn't already complete, we're including a traditional worry doll with each bracelet purchase. Whisper your deepest concerns to these Quitapenas before placing them under your pillow; legend has it that they'll spirit away your worries while you slumber.
Details: Adjustable diameter length: 6-7.75 inches. Perfect for petite wrists!

Vendor: Love is Project | As seen on Shark Tank | 2021 Forbes List - Next 1000 | Featured by Facebook - Women's History Month
Founder Chrissie Lam left her corporate fashion job in NYC in 2012 and moved to Kenya. She wanted to help create jobs for women using her background & network in design & marketing. Immediately, she was inspired by the incredible beadwork of the Masai tribe and together, they created the original red LOVE bracelet. Soon after, she took the first bracelet around the world with her and asked strangers what love meant to them.
50 countries later, she had captured hundreds of amazing Love stories. It started with one tribe and one country, and today, Love Is Project works with over 2,000 female artisans in ten countries. Each handmade bracelet is inspired by the culture and the craftsmanship of each place. Their wages support their families, pay for school fees and allow them to invest in additional income generating projects. They give agency to artisans they partner with to empower themselves.
Love is Empowerment. Love is passion for what you do. It is truly a labor of love. Love is proportional to your will. The stronger your will, the bigger your love, and Love Is Project is true testament to how big love can be. Spread the LOVE with Love Is Project and be a part of the Greatest Love Story Ever Told.
