Shop the Cause: Lokai

"Sometimes you’ve hit a low. Stay hopeful." The black bead in the bracelet holds mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth.

"Sometimes you’re on top of the world. Stay humble." The white bead holds water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth.

Lokai bracelets bring these elements together to show that life is full of cycles. The clear beads represent our own story, one we can share with the world.
