Each cuff is hand-beaded on a traditional Navajo loom and made with high-quality glass seed beads. After the pattern is arranged on the loom, the beads are sewn onto our super soft genuine leather lining. With this bracelet, minor changes in color patterns may occur. When you purchase an Etkie bracelet, you are directly empowering a Native American artisan to earn a living wage and preserve their cultural heritage.
