Rangzen bracelets.jpg (191112 bytes)  Rangzen, or Tibetan Freedom bracelet

Handmade in India by Tibetan Nuns.    Comes with descriptive leaflet.
The Rangzen, or  Freedom,Bracelet was first made by Tibetan political prisoners near Lhasa, Tibet. These bracelets were originally woven from white and black yak hair, or whatever threads were available in the prisons. Today these bracelets are worn as an expression of endurance and defiance against the oppression from the Chinese occupying forces and to spread awareness of the Tibetans' plight.
The '9 eyes' pattern is based on the slingshots which Tibetan shepherds and nomads used to protect their flocks.  Thus the slingshot came to symbolize the conquering power of good over evil and as a great protective force.
Please wear it to show support for freedom and human rights in Tibet

Various colours (eg, black & white, yellow & black, torquoise & white, torquoise & black, torquoise & pink, red & green, red & white...)
Please state your preference or we will choose for you.  Price 2.50 each.  Buy 4 get 1 free!  

All proceeds will be reinvested in trading with Tibetan Refugee Community groups
