"Lotino" means "children" in Acholi. These sweet necklaces were made with children in mind (but can be worn by an adult too) - and provide education and hope for the artisans's own children also.
This child sized (or small adult!) paper bead necklace is made by former child soldiers in Uganda. It is a combination of blue and mint beads, or pink, red and purple beads.
Our world changing fashion is all individually handcrafted, and therefore small imperfections, differences in shape, size and colour can happen and are part of the charm of a handmade product - reminding us an actual person made this item just for you.
