Cool and stylish, this eye-catching plaited bracelet is the perfect accompaniment to any casual outfit. It is fully adjustable and carefully hand made with yak leather by Tibetan artisans.
In Tibet, yaks plough the fields and transport goods. Yak leather is used for clothing, footwear and many other things.
More than 80% of Tibetans live in rural areas, and for centuries, the majority has sustained themselves through a nomadic herder lifestyle, uniquely adapted to the harsh conditions of the fragile ecosystem of the Tibetan plateau. The implementation of Chinese government policies to settle Tibetan nomads and to resettle Tibetans in towns is now threatening the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people and imperilling the Tibetan landscape.
Tibetans struggle with poverty, inadequate education and competition. As Tibetans lose their lands and traditional livelihoods, they are increasingly relying on handicraft skills to make a living.
Your purchase of this product is making a positive difference in the lives of Tibetans, so thank you!
