Tulips for Afghanistan - PETITE & ORIGINAL & LARGE ONLY!
Meet the "aesthetically authentic" Tulips for Afghanistan Bracelet!
This brand new bracelet was designed at our studio in Nepal as a part of our fundraising project for the International Rescue Committee (IRC)..
As many of you requested a special bracelet to support the people in Ukraine, we decided that we should create a whole collection that would lend support and raise awareness for multiple refugee crises happening in the world, with special attention to the extra difficulties faced by women and children fleeing armed conflict.
We decided a beautiful way of honoring these people through beadwork art would be through representations of national flowers.
In their own words, the IRC "helps people affected by humanitarian crises to survive, recover and rebuild their lives... by providing health care, helping children learn, and empowering individuals and communities to become self-reliant, always seeking to address the inequalities facing women and girls."
20% of the final sale price of each bracelet in this collection will be donated to the IRC and their work in each respective country.
Thank you for your support!
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."
