{DIY J. Crew Dupe}

J. Crew has added a new line of cloth bracelets to their collection. I may just purchase one because of the mission of the bracelet but wow look at my DIY dupe.

Indego Africa is a nonprofit enterprise that partners with women artisans in Rwanda to bring their brilliantly colored and completely handcrafted pieces to the rest of the world. And that's just the beginning of the company's commitment to social change: Indego went above and beyond in the name of empowerment, creating a business training program to encourage entrepreneurship and independence among the artisans. Woven from locally sourced Dutch wax cloth, these brightly hued pieces might just be the ultimate friendship bracelets.

My Dupe

I need to cut the frays but overall an easy quick bracelet.

I purchased a ton of African wax print material a while back so I plan on making more of these J. Crew inspired bracelets.

What do you think?
