Purchased as gift for son
My son wears this bracelet every single day! It is very well constructed, stylish appearance, and comfortable.
I ordered 4 different leather bracelets for my birthday give away. Im so impressed with them. I placed the order on 4/28 and received them 5/10. Pretty impressive coming from Africa. Each in a colorful little pouch and wrapped with nice paper and tied with a bow. WOW! They are beautifully made and Im delighted. I highly recommend them.
Bought this for myself, liked the way it looked. I was not disappointed at all when it arrived, was wrapped nice was in a beautiful bag. It fits well and is thick, seems like it will last a long time. Very nicely crafted, thank you.

Men's Handmade Wristband Bracelet, "Amina in Golden Green"$23.99
Robert Aidoo-Taylor designs this bracelet for men in gold and green in honor of Queen Amina of Hausaland. Born in 1533 in what is now known as Zaira, Nigeria, Amina was also a fierce warrior who ruled over 34 years. However, there are some who believe she was a legend and not an actual person. It is said that once when she was imprisoned she had been blindfolded and chained, sentenced to death by poison. Her executioner was given the poison in a cone-shaped bottle and was threatened with death should he spill any of it. He had to untie and remove the folds on Amina's eyes, but couldn't do so while holding the vile. When Amina was able to see how he was struggling, she told him to remove one of her bracelets and use it as a stand for the cone-shaped bottle. Upon realizing she had just saved his life, the executioner decided to help her escape rather than poison her.
Colorful Men's Woven Wristband Bracelet from Ghana, "Colorful Ananse Web"$23.99
Robert Aidoo-Taylor weaves threads of kelly green, yellow and wine on brown for the design of this bracelet for men. "I took my time to conceptualize this design in the way a spider intricately weaves its web," confides Robert Aidoo-Taylor. The Ghanaian artisan takes his inspiration from Kweku Ananse, the Ashanti lord of all knowledge of stories and fables. He generally assumes the form of a spider though sometimes he may appear as a man. Ananse (also Anansi) is one of the most important characters in West Africa, and his tales have spread across the ocean. In the southern United States he evolved into 'Aunty Nancy'.
