Making Our African Art Bracelet

We've had a lot of compliments on our African Art Bracelet, handcrafted by members of a village in Namibia, a nation that has been severely affected by HIV/AIDS. The bracelets, which are carved from recycled PVC pipe, are individually designed by the carver and feature totally unique designs -- no two are ever exactly alike. The proceeds from the sales of these bracelets support prevention/education/care programs within Namibia, so by wearing one, not only are you making a fashion statement of your own, you are directly benefiting small businesses and HIV/AIDS awareness in a truly tangible way.

This photo album includes pictures of how the bracelets are actually made -- I was surprised by the process myself! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at Until.

To see how the bracelets are created, please visit the gallery here.

Products and Promotions

Our newest addition to the Until Bracelet family is the UNTIL wristband. We've introduced them at two events so far: this year's San Francisco Giants Until There's A Cure Night at AT&T Park--where we gave every Giants vendor a black UNTIL wristband--and at the June 10 Minnesota Lynx's Until There's A Cure Night at the Target Center in Minneapolis. For the Lynx game, we had UNTIL bands specially-made to include Candice Wiggins' name and jersey number for the first 5,000 fans.

We are very excited about this product as it provides a new way for us to increase awareness and funding for vaccine research and HIV/AIDS education: school and group fundraising. Students can purchase the wristbands in packages of 10, in pink, red, or black, to be sold individually to friends and family -- money they raise will be granted to one of our pre-screened AIDS foundations in their region.

For those who plan to sell a large volume [over 1,200], the bracelets can be custom ordered in almost any color; think school colors for homecoming, or holiday colors.

To check out the UNTIL bands and start supporting HIV/AIDS research and prevention education in your area, please visit our online ordering page.
