Amano Wrap Bracelet
The word Hmong means “Human Being” or “Free People” in the Hmong language. The Hmong are primarily subsistence farmers and gatherers. These beaded wrap bracelets are made by an artisan cooperative of 15 Hmong artisans living in Chang Mai. These artisans are highly skilled and specialized in their craft, and in this instance they are the primary wage-earners for their families. Because of the income the women are earning from their handicraft, they no longer work in agricultural jobs.
Made from compressed turquoise, color-treated bamboo coral, compressed howlite, and brass beads on a black linen and leather cord.
