Story Behind the Art:
Wakami is a social brand that designs handmade fashion accessories inspired by ancestral culture and weaving techniques from Central America. Our brand represents a rustic urban lifestyle that connects people with people, the earth, and the joys in life. We work with artisans in disconnected rural communities (of which 95-percent are women) and connect them with urban markets around the world. Wakami products are what we call, messengers of connection between the people that make them and the people that buy them. They enrich the lives of the people that buy them and change the lives of people that produce them. Artisans become leaders of self-empowerment that act as catalysts for change in their communities.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
All weights and measurements are approximate and may vary slightly from the listed information.

Love the look and the symbolism of the bracelets- the only problem is that a few of them are a little tight when they are first put on- because of the material they do stretch after you wear them for awhile. They can be worn while bathing or swimming as they do not bleed which is nice because it is a little difficult to get them all on and off.Read More
I was looking for something "different" for a friend who likes unique jewelry. I found it in this bracelet. She loved it. I liked it so much I ordered two - one for each of us! The fact that the purchase also helped someone was an added bonus.Read More
It is colorful and I love the packaging but it was tiny. I have an average size wrist and could not even come close to getting it on. So I had to return it today.Read More
I bought these because they reminded me of the 1960s and 70s Woodstock days. They look great with jeans. My husband calls them my hippie bracelets. They are very well made however read my report on sizing above. They are small but seem to stretch over time.Read More
