Treasured flipflops, the national footwear of Africa, float on the river in Mali and wash ashore. While the Bozo tribe always lived off fishing, an extreme decline in the river’s fish-stock has threatened their livelihood. The fishing-tribe women found a new way to feed their children, by collecting the flipflops, melting them, and twirling them into beautiful jewelry. A number of years later, the project is so successful that more than 80 families manage to live off this simple and magical transformation of flipflops into these original accessories. Give the colourful striped bracelets to friends and family, and give the Bozo women who made junk into jewelry, a better life!
The best way to put on the bracelets is to carefully roll them onto your arm one by one.
