FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HHP to feature Elegant, Handwoven Bracelets from Colombia at NY NOW
Chicago (February 2, 2018) –
HHP/helping hand partners will present Tulia by HHP at NY NOW, a curated collection of woven cuffs and bracelets that empower indigenous Wounaan artisans in Colombia.
Each one-of-a-kind bracelet is handmade by master weavers from the tribe. Sales support the artisans, and also support cultural preservation. Many of the Wounaan have been displaced to larger cities due to violence and poverty, and continued creation of these bracelets allows them to pass on the tradition to the next generation.
HHP is presenting Tulia products as it matches perfectly with their mission to provide sustainable livelihoods to individuals and communities with barriers to employment. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, HHP is truly a supplier that gives back. All of HHP’s partners both in the United States and abroad are fair trade practice, and provide a pathway out of poverty for the artisans.
“We believe in bringing beautiful, high-end and fair trade practice products to the forefront,” said Retail Sales Manager Kelley Shields. “Tulia’s beautiful woven cuffs and bracelets should be shared with the world and HHP is proud to support this cause.”
Tulia accessories are made from palm thread, copper craft wire, and sterling silver. Larger cuffs with sterling silver closures are available, as well as thin, elegant bracelets. Bright, bold and unique, each piece stands out and makes a social impact.
