MAASAI (RED) LOVE BRACELET - UBUNTU "Love" Bracelet
The LOVE Bracelets, hand-beaded by Ubuntu Made's Maasai artisans, empower communities through financial independence and connect the maker to the wearer with a shared experience of love. LOVE Bracelets began the #loveisproject through a collaboration between Ubuntu Made and The Supply Change that became a widespread movement, expanding into large markets such as American Eagle and Whole Foods Market, increasing impact for 400 artisans in Kenya.
Ubuntu Made is committed to creating lasting changes in the communities they serve through a ñmile deep, inch wideî approach to their work. Rather than making products and sourcing materials from various parts of the world, they focus their efforts on specific Kenyan communities creating full time jobs, including benefits like healthcare for their makers and their families. This is unheard of in Kenya, where only 10% of the country is under health coverage. This provides their makers with stability for their lives and their families. It also ensures that their customers are receiving great products that are creating a transparent good from the people who make them.
Ubuntu Made sources as many of the materials in their products locally, stimulating the Kenyan economy as a whole. They view their supply chain, from our suppliers to our makers to our customers, as links in a chain providing an ultimate exchange of good from start to finish, from their hands to yours.
