Indigo Blue Tribal Target Rectangle Tube, 8x27mmWoman Shops World
These indigo blue painted carved bone beads are handmade in India, from cow bone (cruelty-free) that have been carved from a barrel. The indigo blue rectangular barrel is carved with many a tribal target pattern all around the four sided bead.
This listing is for 8 large hole, hand carved, red barrel beads. Each bead measures approximately 8x27mm. These have a larger hole on them (approximately 1mm), so they would work great on smaller leather cord or hemp twine.
Curious to know about the source of the bone?
In India and Nepal, not much is wasted. So instead of just eating the meat of an animal, every part of the animal is used: bones for things like beads, hides/hair for clothing and accessories and talismans, and the meat is consumed.
The making of these beads and pendants provides a livelihood for families in remote villages in Nepal and India, which we are honored to support and share with you.
A portion of all WSW sales will be donated to The Compassion Collective, which works to feed, clothe, shelter, and save our refugee and homeless sisters, brothers, and children in the US and worldwide.
