Wear Your Impact! New at SWELL, the Base Project delivers more than just incredibly eclectic cuffs.
They are cuffs that create jobs and invest in community development projects. Support socially and environmentally conscious style by sporting bracelets made from upcycled PVC pipe! Instead of filling up landfills in Namibia, Africa, the discarded PVC pipe is collected by local artisans, then hand-cut, carved and re-formed into bracelets. Genius. Inspiration for the patterns and designs come from the animals, landscape, rich history of Namibia; and reflect the traditional art of the region alongside the artists’ own unique vision. The unique coloring on the PVC, a combination of exposure to the sun, along with the rich, red-ochre soil of the region, gives the bracelets their distinctly natural look. The aesthetic is comparable to bone or horn, but no animals have been harmed in the process.
So you can do good, and look good doing it. A big arm party high five to that!
