Brazilets, the bracelet that lets you wear your wishes. Launched by fashionista, Kael Robinson, this accessory is pretty, eco-friendly and budgeted for everyone. Here's the story behind this cool trend. When Kael was in Brazil, she received a fabric wish bracelet, a 200 year-old tradition from mystical Bahia, Brazil. Kael took her ruby colored wish bracelet and followed the mystical instructions:
'??Wrap your Brazilets around your wrist and tie three knots, making a wish with each knot. When your Brazilets naturally break down and fall off, it is believed that your three wishes will come true.'?
And sure enough, when Kael'??s Brazilet fell off 9 months later, all 3 of her wishes came true! Through the power of positive karma (and don't all moms need a dose of that to keep going), Brazilets have become a favorite amongst celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart who have all wished upon a knot!
How are they giving back? 20% of all proceeds from Brazilets are donated to environmental charity organizations helping to save the most endangered forest in Brazil. Brazilets are available in a range of colors and retailing at just $5 each or $70 for a wish pack of 14 brazilets (perfect party favors for a tween party).
