Your tie to the troops—the Peace Cord bracelet is hand-woven by women in Afghanistan from military grade, 550 parachute cord and features a nickel Air Force insignia button. In other words, the very materials U.S. soldiers use and wear comprise the accessory. The production of Peace Cord bracelets creates jobs for impoverished Afghan women, delivers access to education and healthcare, and provides funds to U.S. troops for humanitarian projects that supply necessities like shoes, food and school books to isolated Afghan communities.
Size length measurements: S: 7.5”, M: 8.5”, L: 9.5”. Peace Cord is a partnership between ARZU STUDIO HOPE and Spirit of America, like-minded nonprofit organizations affecting positive change in communities across Afghanistan. 550 parachute cord is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of U.S. parachutes during World War II. Astronauts used this versatile cord during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
