Review: Zulugrass Bracelets from The Leakey Collection

I’m going to tell you a little about my favorite fashion accessory.  I received a set of 3 single strand Zulugrass bracelets from The Leakey Collection to reveiw and found them to be spectacular! They are colorful, versatile, fun and addicting! I received a pink, orange and teal and I have had them on most of the time since I received them. They match almost everything that I have. They are 26″ Zulugrass single strands made from grass beads that are dyed with low impact dyes and strung on durable elastic (They are VERY durable because Charlee Ann likes to tug on them and she is strong and hasn’t busted one yet!). They are waterproof and color fast which is nice. Who really wants to worry about having to take them off when they wash their hands or what if your sweating outside in the summertime. Well, I can tell you that I have done plenty of both in the last month and they have never lost their color or bled on my skin or clothes. Don’t tell anyone but I have even left them on while doing the dishes and nothing happened! They look as great as when I first got them. They can be worn as bracelets or as a necklace if you use a clasp. Don’t worry about them being to small or to because you can just wrap them around your wrist as many times as you want. When I put them on and wrapped them 4 x they seemed a little tight so I changed it to 3 x and they fit perfectly and I have to say with my summertime tan they look pretty cute.

Here is the Leakey Story!!

The Leakey Collection was founded in 2002 by Katy and Philip Leakey. They founded this company of  natural, african-made, sustainable jewelry and elegant handcrafted products.  Their love for nature combined with their talents in interior design and arts got the ball rolling on this great company. The company is based in Kenya, East Africa where they use natural elements of fallen wood, sustainable grass and “bush” fired porcelain to create uniquely exotic products.

They offer tons of products besides the Zulugrass singles incuding: bracelets, necklaces, earrings, embellishments and for the home products. They have tons of charms, hooks and clasps to choose from. In the “for the home section”  they have the most beautiful items made from fallen acacia wood including salad tongs, bread boards, chopsticks and serving platters.

Each purchase from The Leakey Collection supports the people of Kenya. A small endeavor that supported 100 families in Kenya has evolved into an enterprise with over 1400 dedicated workers! This is a great opportunity for the people of Kenya. Each purchase from The Leakey Collection gives the gift of opportunity to the Maasai women of Kenya!

Now here is the best compliment you can give a company! I have ordered more! I am addicted to these beautiful single strand bracelets and plan on getting them all. I have ordered the Ocean Blue set and the Cafe Au Lait for  $21.94 each. You can also order sets of 3-7 strands for $38.95- $64.95. For the amount of times that I have worn mine I am sure I will more than get my money’s worth on them!

They are offering a special on their I am Veterans Support Yellow Ribbon Bracelet buy 2 get 1 free until Labor Day so hurry on over and grab yourself a great deal. You can also follow them on facebook, twitter, pinterest and you tube to keep up on all their great products and specials!
