My Daddy, My Husband, MY HERO
Another way to say salute your Hero is by giving him our Father's Day stack of the Lion and MY HERO a duo of bands planting 20 trees.
Our MY HERO fabric is hand woven, hand dyed and the gold glass beads, each one, hand sown into the fabric. It comes in camel. Truly a labour of love.
The Lion is handmade by artisans using tempered glass and 24K gold plated beads with string cotton which is adjustable for sizes between 13.5 cms (5.2 inches) and 24 cms (9.5 inches).
Size & Fitting
The organic fabric band measures 33cm / 13 inches in length. To fit to size, the length can be trimmed with scissors. Always cut at an angle to minimise fraying of the cotton.
Worn on the wrist or ankles, it is double tied at the back to hold the band in place. The band can be sown onto clothes or onto soft furnishings or used as a decoration.

The West African Lion
The West African Lion is critically endangered with just 400 animals left in the wild and 250 mature adults. This is less than 10% of the population that existed in 2013! Why, because their environment is being lost and eroded and the lions are wondering into areas where they are hunted and killed by humans. Adult male lions weigh up to 400 pounds and eat a whopping 100 pounds of meat in one meal! They hunt mostly at night and love storms as the noise means their prey can't hear them. Lion's mains grow unto 8 inches in length, like human hair are used to attract mates, but also protect them when they are fighting other males for mates!
Lion populations have decreased throughout Africa and Africa is the only place on earth where they can be found with one exception in India. There are around 20,000 lions of all types left - compare that with over 400,000 elephants of all types.
Our West African Lion bracelet seeks to capture the natural hews and colors of this remarkable 'King or Queen of the Jungle' and as the jungle disappears, so do they.
