From the 18th to early 20th centuries, men of the Mbole tribe in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) offered ankle bracelets to their wives as part of the marriage contract. Handcrafted of brass with an antique copper patina, our artisan-crafted reproduction serves as a striking artistic form in its own right.
