Lapland Leather Reindeer Bracelets

Sámi artisans created these stylish and mythic handmade bracelets. The Sámi (also known as Laplanders) are the indigenous reindeer-herding people of northern Scandinavia, and the Kola Peninsula of Russia. They have been herding and responsibly harvesting reindeer for thousands of years. Unlike other leathers (which are often processed with chrome and nickel), the reindeer leather used in these bracelets is tanned with a solution extracted from the bark of willow, fir, and birch trees, which makes it “green” and hypoallergenic. The exquisite embroidery- inspired by both traditional and contemporary patterns- is created with coiled pewter thread invented by the Sámi from tin alloy and silver. The fastener is a leather loop and a button from shed reindeer antler. Proceeds from the purchase of these bracelets help to support Sámi artisans. Further, in order to help preserve the North, True North Gallery donates five percent of profits to the National Resources Defense Council. From $88 and up, at True North Gallery:
