Peace Cord: As troops come home, wear peace proudly and continue to help those in Afghanistan

Peace Cord: As troops come home, wear peace proudly and continue to help those in Afghanistan

Though the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are (debatably) over, there is a great deal of love, respect and homage still to pay to those in the armed service and those affected by the past decade of unrest in the Middle East.

One poignant idea presents itself as the perfect last minute stocking stuffer — the Peace Cord.

Peace Cord is "a partnership between ARZU STUDIO HOPE and Spirit of America, like-minded nonprofit organizations affecting positive change in communities across Afghanistan."

The simple Peace Cord bracelets are made from military grade parachute cord and solider uniform buttons. Each is hand woven by a woman in Afganistan whose craftsmanship has found them access to employment, education and healthcare through the Peace Cord and AZRU partnership.

Moreover (and in the name of fashion), the bracelet pairs perfectly with the military inspired trend that never seems to leave the runway. Give a meaningful gift and/or add a sharp accent your arm party, all at once.
