Skyler Miao Silver Bracelet
Our partner provides life-changing opportunities to women survivors of human trafficking through their Holistic Care Programs and our innovative social enterprise where women create beautiful jewelry, but also become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers. Through their holistic care programs they provide each woman with vocational training, health care, shelter, counseling, as well as child education grants for women and children.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Among 55 minority groups in China, the Miao is known for its exquisite silver accessories. Silver accessories are a standard for the Miao people. For more than 400 years, it's been the custom to decorate oneself head to toe, with silver. The purpose of wearing all this silver is of course primarily aesthetic, but they are also worn as amulets to ward off evil, and as symbols of wealth. The tradition of wearing silver is preserved by a great number of craftsmen, scattered through the Miao villages.
