Guatemalan Friendship Bracelets
Our Fair Trade Friendship Bracelets are designed to be given by one person to another as a symbol of friendship. According to tradition, one ties a bracelet onto the wrist of a friend who may wish for something at that moment. The bracelet should be worn until it is totally worn out and falls off by itself, at which moment the wish is supposed to come true.
The history of the Friendship Bracelets goes way back to protests about the disappearance of Mayan Indians and Guatemala Peasants. Since then they have been seen in a variety of political rallies and as social statements.
Our colorful Fair Trade Friendship Bracelets are completely handmade in various styles and patterns, awaiting you to define the meaning. Not only popular with both male and female teenagers but among the older generation, celebrities and surfers as well as an ideal fashion accessory at the beach.
Each one of our Fair Trade Friendship Bracelets is 100% handmade by Fair Trade artisans in Guatemala.
