Peace in 

A friend recently turned us on to these very cool bracelets from Peace Cord, made from authentic materials used by soldiers in the field. The bracelets are hand-woven by Afghan women from parachute cord and military uniform buttons and come in various sizes. They kind of remind us of those knotted rope, sailor bracelets everyone used to wear as kids in the summer. So give a nod to the military trend while doing some good—100% of the proceeds support grassroots programs in rural Afghanistan.
