In 2014, our founder, Ben, found himself lost in the middle of the Balinese jungle.
After taking a wrong turn on his motorbike, he stumbled upon a village of talented artisan carvers struggling to make a living and carry on this craft that had been passed down for generations.
He asked one artisan -Made
- to carve an infinitysymbol and tie it on a piece of string to create a bracelet for his friend.
When more and more of his community grew interested in the hand-crafted pieces, Ben knew he wanted to bring this craft that had been mostly kept in the jungles of Bali to a global audience.
Today, Wanderer Bracelets partners with over 150 artisans in that original village.
