Social Impact: BRANDED Collective provides job training and employment to survivors of human trafficking in Nashville. Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The BRANDED Collective stands against this brutal practice. Each BRANDED item is stamped with an initial and a number. The initial belongs to the survivor who made your cuff. You can read her story on our website. The number is your unique number in the Collective. You can register this number and send a Message of Hope to our survivors.
Product Description: Bracelets bend to individual wrist size. Cuffs are 1/4 inch wide and 6 inches long, and are available in aluminum, brass or copper. These three words are spoken at BRANDED on an almost daily basis. RO, an extraordinary woman and artisan here at BRANDED, is the sweet soul who first shared these words with our team. When we have a seemingly endless pile of orders, hundreds of items to make, and very little time, RO will look at the team and simply state: "Poco a poco" (little by little). She graciously reminds us all just how much we can accomplish when we take a deep breath and go one item at a time.
