These bracelets were handmade with LOVE in Guerrero and Puebla, Mexico by women artisans from the co-op Flor de Mexico, led by Araceli Flores.
The motto behind Flor de Mexico is ‘History Made by Women’—LOVE! The majority of the palm used in these bracelets is collected from communities nestled in the mountains near Atlixtac, Zapotitlan Tablas, Ahuacoutzingo and Copanatoyac. The beads are handcrafted and dyed over 3-5 days in Guerrero and then passed off to the artisans in Puebla who use a needle to weave together the bracelet.
"I believe LOVE is passion for what you do. Love Is Project is truly a labor of LOVE. Between my mother, Gladys Lam, and myself, we singlehandedly run this organization full-time. We are the definition of a scrappy, big-hearted start-up always looking to meet the moment and jump in to help where we can. Powered by LOVE and a tribe of collaborators, mentors, friends, and a worldwide support system, Love Is Project exists"
