Ubuntu Wrap in English Saddle | Sterling Silver
“I am what I am because of who we all are.”
Ubuntu (oo-boon-to) is a Nguni Bantu term meaning humanity and the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. When that connection is deeply felt it’s transformative. Even small actions have a big impact. When we respect each other, the environment, and ourselves, life blossoms. The world stamped on this bracelet is a reminder that we are all connected.
This piece was designed in collaboration with The Art of Courage (TAOC) and Worlds Collide. Each purchase feeds one child for a year at the Tchukudu Kids Home in Goma, the Democratic Republic of Congo We thank you!

Our leather is a curated collection of Canadiana tones. Each custom colour is chosen for its rich, deep tone and represents our memories and love of the Canadian landscape. All our leather is locally cut and dyed from cowhide. With time, your piece will soften and become perfectly molded to you.
Please note that the image used for this product will not look exactly like the piece you will receive. Because our leather is hand-dyed no two pieces are exactly alike. Each piece will vary and be unique to you.
A note about wear + care
As with all special jewelry, we suggest removing your leather pieces when bathing, swimming or doing messy labour. The leather is crimped and glued into place, if it gets saturated in water too often the glue will eventually wear away, the leather will shrink a bit and could fall out of the sterling end cap. However, if you take good care of your wrap, it will last you many beautiful years.
