Along the Niger River in West Africa live the Bozo people. While this Mali tribe traditionally lived off fishing, an extreme decline in the river’s fish stock have threatened the Bozo people’s livelihoods. While the river’s fish stock declined, the river peculiarly started to bring along a high number of floating flip-flops. Their primary source of food having gone, the Bozo women found a way of taking advantage of this disaster. Recycling the sandals they caught in the river, they have designed a lovely collection of colourful bracelets that are being traded all over the world and carry their message of optimism and creativity.
There was initially only a small number of families making these beautiful bracelets. Now the project is so successful that more than 80 families live off the design and manufacture of these original bracelets.

We recommend to ROLL your Jokko bracelets on, one or two at a time.
Items are individually handcrafted so sizes and colors will vary.
