We are committed to making our products from natural materials that are ethically sourced.
Wanderer Bracelets are a refreshing, burden-free alternative to jewelry made from precious stones, metals or ivory.
Mining precious stones, gold or silver creates toxic runoff and often dangerous working conditions in mines and foundries, while the illegal ivory trade murders countless wild elephants for their tusks. By contrast, water buffalo bone is a beautiful and durable organic material that finds new life as jewelry instead of going to waste.
Domestic water buffalo are never killed for their bone. Most live their lives on small family farms where they are highly valued and cared for. Families rely on these venerable animals to plow rice terraces and fertilize crops.
With five million domestic water buffalo throughout the islands of Indonesia, their bone and horn is in abundant supply, and the villagers have used these materials for generations to create art, tools and adornments. Since they work in open-air jungle huts, there is very little industrial footprint.
Every Wanderer Bracelet helps preserve a unique cultural and artistic legacy for the next generation.
