What’s hot this summer in eco-style? 3 Strands Global! The woven, fashionable bracelets not only complete your summery, boho beach chic look, but they convey a deeper message – one of freedom, love and empowerment!
3Strands Global is an eco-friendly fashion brand created in 2012 working to fight human trafficking around the world. With the sale of every 3Strands handmade bracelet and gift box, money is raised to help empower, teach and employ young women who have been rescued from the evils of human trafficking. Profits from 3Strands helps to support organizations like Agape International Mission (AIM), based in Cambodia, that help to rescue and restore these young victims.
3Strands bracelets are handmade by rescued young women in Cambodia. The bracelets are made from wax-cotton cord that is dyed with eco-friendly chemicals and materials for treatment, processing, coloring and finishing.
The woven bracelets each feature a signature 3Strands metal closure with the words “freedom, love and empowerment” appearing on the closure made to purposefully remind the wearer of the trafficking survivor who made it. The incorporation of a single red string, barely visible inside the center of each bracelet, illustrates the souls of these women and how they are practically invisible to those who have bought and sold them in the past.
Every bracelet displays one fragile, red seed from the pods of Sandalwood trees, native to Cambodia. The discovery of seeds from the native Sandalwood tree were literally underfoot. From this litter of dry, colorless pods, the women select a fragile red seed to include in each bracelet they make. The natural beauty of this glossy, recycled, scarlet seed represents the beauty in each of the women who have been freed and empowered with a hope for the future.
“Mom” is loving the bracelets she received from 3Strands Global. Reminscent of the friendship bracelets worn when she was young, these handmade bracelets make you feel proud to wear one, knowing the story behind them. What a wonderful fashion statement to make!
