Each bracelet is handwoven by a woman employed by the South African based Mhani Gingi network, which supports women from townships to apply their skills in order to provide for themselves. This particular one is made out of green and dark brown leather.
Mhani Gingi translates as a caring, industrious woman who is always looking for lasting solutions to social problems. As such the organisation puts the rights of women at the centre of their social engagement, since when you empower a woman in Africa, you empower a whole community.
When you purchase a bracelet made by the women whom Mhani Gingi supports, you assist the organisation in their vital work towards growth and equal rights for all.
