Bold colors command attention in this handsome wristband bracelet for men, crafted by Ghana's Robert Aidoo-Taylor. The black, green, wine and yellow bracelet is woven from sturdy cords around a recycled paper core. It closes with a brass snap. The artisan names it barima, which is the Akan word for "man".

The artisan was inspired by a renowned rattan weaver who would use such designs on his baskets. The braided design is known as messa in the Akan language; it means "three strands".

10 Testimonials for Robert Aidoo-Taylor


We really like the ""Perfect Peace"" bracelet in green and black but the first time my husband wore it the black threads came out from under the green braiding and it is basically broken/not wearable. We will have to return it. Hope you can ensure this doesn't happen with your bracelets in the future and wishing you success.

I received your beautiful fan today and it is even more beautiful in person. It is very well made and I will display it nicely.


Received two woven bracelets today. Well crafted for the price but one of the bands was not as advertised . . . 8.5 inches instead of 8.75 inches.
