Ubuntu has four different styles of handmade beaded bracelets for sale, all of which feature unique designs. These collections are the LOVE, tribal, woven, and (RED) bracelets.
The LOVE bracelets are a two-color design with “love” printed on the bracelet on a colored background. These bracelets are available in either woven or handmade leather bracelets.
The tribal bracelets feature intricate beadwork and traditional tribal patterns in six different styles. The design names come from the Swahili words used to describe their designs.
Piramidi, the Swahili word for "pyramid," is a design with multicolored pyramid shapes on colorful backgrounds. The piramidi design ranges from simple, two-color motifs to five different colors. The piramidi bracelets come in five-row patterns, with five rows of beads.
Mstari, which means "line" or "row" in Swahili, features diagonal sections of beads in a striped pattern with a thin line at the top. The mstari design is available in multiple colors, from simple motifs to ones including striped beads. They are also available in a "skinny," three-row version.
Nija means "the way to." This bracelet is an intricate pattern of three colors of beads in the skinny three-row type. The middle row has lines in an alternating color pattern, surrounded on top and bottom by rows of a different color.
Uzuri has multiple meanings, from beauty to tidiness. These meanings show in the small, intricate designs of the uzuri bracelets. They are similar to the piramidi, with smaller pyramids and an alternating patterned row at the bracelet's top.
Msalaba means “cross” in Swahili. These bracelets have a two-color design with crosses on a colorful background.
Sherehe means “festival” or “party,” which is reflected by one of Ubuntu Life’s most complex bracelet designs. These feature small pyramids of alternating colors on a colorful background under rows of striped beads.
The woven bracelets are glass beads and nylon. They come in dozens of styles, from intricate beaded patterns to simple two-color styles with words or short phrases on them. The words and phrases are messages of hope and daily reminders for the wearer, including to dream, believe, and strive for peace, reinforcing the company’s positive, community-centered background.
Ubuntu partnered with Product (RED) to create the (RED) line of bracelets. 20% of the proceeds from these handmade bracelets from Africa support HIV/AIDS programs in the sub-Saharan region. The (RED) bracelets come in two styles, the standard five-row design or the three-row "skinny" design. They both feature the word love written in white on a red background.
