brazilets are worn by wrapping around the wrist and tied in 3 knots for three wishes. When the material wears down and the brazilet falls off naturally it is believed that your wishes will come true. This is a 200 year old Brazilian tradition and are fashionably worn throughout Latin America. They read "lembranca do senhor do bonfim da bahia" in Portuguese which translates to "in remembrance of our saint of good luck". A portion of the proceeds goes towards helping to preserve and restore Brazilian rainforest's. brazilets have partnered with PlantABillion.com, a Nature Conservatory project that will plant a billion trees in the Atlantic Forest of the Brazilian rainforest. They are available in 13 different colors!
