This African Breeze bracelet is the answer to a piece of nature around your arm. Simplicity and colors melt together. Cheerful, pure and graceful.

Do you have a preference for a particular material? Glass, wood, leather or stone, choose! All our bracelets are expertly crafted by Umtha’s talented employees from Cape Town. With the utmost care they chose the materials and colors of this beautiful bracelet. To surprise you (or a dear person) with a beautiful, lasting piece of jewelry around your wrist.

Do you want to put together your own bracelet? This can be done with this African Breeze as well as with the other mix & match bracelets in our webshop. The bundles of seven bracelets you simply disconnect from each other and wear separately when you want. So today you go for the green colors and tomorrow you wear the neutral bracelets, matching your outfit.

Bracelets with a story
In 1992, Dave Milligan, owner of Umtha, bought some beads in a local store. He was unemployed and at home he freed the beads into a beautiful piece of jewelery for his wife Cheryl who loved it. Together they discovered the demand for special, handmade and affordable jewelry. They made limited editions that they sold in local markets and at a few stores.

Dave and Cheryl met Jostina Dubase in 1996. She lived in a shelter for women in difficult circumstances. Jostina wanted nothing more than a job. That was offered to her by Umtha, and with success. With this Dave and Cheryl took a new path. They wanted to create work, and with it a future, for low-skilled and disadvantaged people from the townships around Cape Town. Meanwhile, 15 people are working in Umtha’s studio.

Umtha is officially approved by the COFTA (Cooperative for Fair Trade in Africa) and the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization).
