Give Her a Chance Bracelet #1 - PREORDER NOW!
Give Her a Chance Bracelet #1:
We appreciate everyone's support of our grassroots, all-woman social enterprise in Nepal! As you may realize, Nepal is currently on a very strict, police-enforced lockdown which means that the Lotus Sky Craftswomen cannot leave their homes, lest they face severe consequences. We are doing our part to prevent the spread in Nepal, having had made the painful decision to close the studio a week before the mandated lockdown began.
Now on week 6 of no production, we have made the decision with you, our customers, to offer some of our most-requested "out of stock" bracelets on preorder. This means that you can purchase and reserve these bracelets now so that you receive the first batch when lockdown ends. It also means guaranteed orders for the craftswomen who create these bracelets once things return to "normal."
We are anticipating a turnaround of 4-6 weeks, but recognize that the decision is in the hands of the Nepali government. If you would like to reserve now to assure that you are at the front of the line, we appreciate your patience.
We hope that wherever you are in the world, you are staying safe & healthy.

This brand new, exclusive design was authored on Black Friday, 2018, at our studio in Nepal as a part of our fundraising project for the Lotus Sky Scholarship Fund.
The Give Her a Chance Bracelet Collection is specifically intended to help raise money for the Lotus Sky Scholarship Fund, which has helped over 8 girls and young women in college to date.

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."
