Welcome to our version of the African cord necklace. The “Umoja” is a three strand braided fabric necklace made from ankara wax print, denim and upcycled jersey. This 24″ necklace uses kente print fabric, denim and upcycled jersey to create a necklace that is safe for your baby and toddler to pull and chew on while you’re wearing it. When it gets dirty, it can be thrown in the wash!
“Umoja” means “unity” in Swahili. The braided necklace reminds us that our lives are an interwoven story. We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves, no matter where that neighbor is from.
Made in North Carolina for our employment initiative. We’re working to provide opportunities to learn, create, and earn for Refugee and immigrant women in Charlotte. Be a part of our story through your purchase of this necklace.
NOTE: Since this is a handmade product, the necklace will ship within 3-5 business days.
