Kimpande bracelet

$80.00

Kimpande bracelets are made of bronze and are inspired by the handcuffs of the African Tuareg, Fulani, Maasai, Ashanti and Bantu people.

The manilla was used in West Africa as a form of currency and also as an ornament and symbol of social status. Its origin precedes the colonial era and its use evolves in the Puerto Rican tradition as a tool for protection and identity.
