Meet the "aesthetically authentic" Bhaktapur Kurta Bracelet!
The bracelets in our Nepali Kurta Collection are inspired by the heart of traditional Nepali clothing: the kurta. Women's kurtas are often decorative and tailored in bright colors that change throughout the seasons and based on occasion. Flowy and effortless, they are beautiful and comfortable at the same time! Each kurta bracelet in this collection is also intended to thematically represent a city, district, or otherwise famous site in Nepal.
Hand crocheted and artfully designed one bead at a time by your favorite all-women artisan team, roll on your perfect number of bracelets to create a stack that is all yours!
As pioneers in the "Know your Makers" movement, each and every Lotus Sky bracelet is carefully handcrafted by an official member of our all-woman team in Kathmandu, Nepal. This direct funnel from artisan to consumer connects you with the actual artisans behind your bracelets and means that money isn't wasted in the sales funnel on third party dealers or distributors.
We are 100% woman run and operated because we know that when women have access to reliable income in a healthy, sustainable, and supportive environment backed by sisterhood, they make economic decisions that result in empowered communities, increased educational opportunities for themselves and their children, and medical access. Their lives and communitites are transformed!
Original sized Lotus Sky bracelets are crocheted to an approximate length of 7 inches, so that they have an inside circumference of about 6.5 to 6.75 inches. We have found that this is the preferred bangle size for the majority of women.
We crochet our bracelets on hand-dyed natural cotton thread, so that they have a slight give to easily and comfortably slide over the largest part of the hand, while still resting perfectly right below the wrist bone.
If you are not quite sure that our original sized bracelets will fit you, there are two helpful measurements:
>>> If the length across the top of your hand, from your index finger knuckle to your pinkie knuckle is around 3 inches, our original sized bracelets should easily slide over your hand.
>>> If your wrist circumference is anywhere between 5-6.75 inches, our original sized bracelets should fit. However, if you prefer more wiggle room or a tighter fit, you can downsize or upsize appropriately.
Our bracelets are by women, for women. Therefore, we know that bracelets should not be "one size fits all."
