Product DescriptionThese unisex bracelets are made from naturally hand-dyed hemp string, which is cleverly knotted to make them adjustable. Two pieces are tied to a handcrafted, four-hole button made from a coconut shell. This is a large supplier based in Bangladesh with two and a half thousand employees, who are mainly women. One hundred and forty are support staff, one thousand artisans work in the factories and five hundred work from home. The remainder are sub-contractors. Whilst most of the workers come from rural areas and are mainly poor women, widows or divorcees, the support teams are highly skilled experts that are specialised in their fields. All employees receive many benefits in addition to their wages including the Provident Fund for retirement, gratuity, medical allowances; annual leave and a share of the profit. All of the products this supplier produces are handmade from natural materials and two percent of the annual profit goes towards community development. This innovative company are currently going through the process of setting up and testing a solar dryer for their handmade paper items and two of their factories have effluent treatment plants installed. This company is a 'Guaranteed Fair Trade' certified company by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). These bracelets make great gifts and stocking fillers.
