For some reason every time I look at Barber Bracelets I get teary eyed. I think it is because of the empathy that Laura Barber, the owner, shows towards us infant loss moms.
Laura started making her bracelets, after a cub scout project with her son. Her adorable bracelets are made out of paracord, yep the cords from parachutes. Some how Laura has found a way to make them into something adorable and fashionable. She also figured out how to add "awareness ribbons" to them:)
This is where I start getting emotional...Laura decided to start making special "Angel Bracelets", because she was inspired by Tricia Pyatt. Tricia is the founder of the fabulous Lil Angel Hankies, which we featured back in February. Laura and Trcia have been friends since high school.
"She was a close friend when we were both in high school, and seeing how much she helped others was amazing. I haven't lost any pregnancies myself, but many women in my family have. I had no idea how much it would mean to the mothers to have a bracelet like this, but I'm glad if it helps them in any way."
Barber Bracelets are not only for infant loss parents, you can get them made for any cause. Or you can just get them made in colors that you love. They are also great for sports fans, your kids sports team, sororities... and since they are soft you can wear them around the clock.
Many of us have remembrance walks coming up, what a great way to show team unity, and remember why you are walking. I am doing the OC Walk to Remember next month, and plan on getting these in the colors that we had done our daughter's nursery in. It will be our way of showing everyone that we are walking for her...
I not only like what this company stands for, but I also think that they are right in touch with the current "arm full of bracelets" trend. I see a lot of people sporting the 80's friendship bracelets (takes me right back to those days), however I like the idea of putting a modern twist on the trend with these:)
