We are SO excited to announce that 31 Bits
will be featured in the Spring 2016 Fab Fit Fun box! 31 Bits was founded in 2008 by five college friends, and has grown from empowering 6 Ugandan women to over 160. They have received international recognition and press, including Martha Stewart Living, Fox News, CNN, The Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping, Harpers Bazaar, People Style Watch, and more
. The 31 Bits program in Uganda is comprised of more than 160 people who are using their talents and artistry to create these exquisite pieces. By selling their accessories in the global market, we are able to provide them with monthly incomes and holistic development programs like health education, financial training, counseling, and business training. Through employment and education, every person is rising above poverty and learning to dream for their future. Actress Sophia Bush recently traveled to Uganda to visit 31 Bits - click here

My Rating: ?????
I was sent one of the accessories from the Fab Fit Fun Box, which came from 31 Bits! I was sent a lovely layered bracelet (see it here
) to check out for myself just to get a feel for what sort of products can be found in the Fab Fit Fun Box and to see the quality of 31 Bits. About the bracelet:
Various strands of iridescent beads are intertwined to create this dreamy bracelet. Alternating bead sizes mixed with exquisite gold leafing gives Brooklyn Nights a dynamic effect. Available in Beige/Gold, Burgundy/Gold, and Black/Gold.
This bracelet is not only fashionable but well made. It is handmade in Uganda with colorful beads are made from recycled paper. It measures approximately 8" when laid flat, has 6 layers of bead strands and uses a unique button-style clasp. I love the simplicity in design, yet it`s enough to really bring out an outfit. While it`s nothing fancy, I can say it`s enough to catch my attention and check out the 31 Bits website. They have a ton of nice fashion accessories. If they`re anything like the quality of the bracelet I sent, then they are well worth investing in! All in all I had a great experience and would certainly recommend checking them out for anyone who is into fashion and/or jewelry!
