The Fanfan Bangles are nature's way of showing off! Cow horn is often considered a waste product, but it's never wasted in Haiti. When an animal dies of natural causes, everything that can be used is. When the animal horn is sanded and polished, so many beautiful colors appear; from ivory to black and everything in between.
About the Artisan:
Fanfan is the nickname for Vi Bella's artisan, Stephania, a great leader on the sewing team. Fanfan is loved by all and is always ready to have fun! You will rarely see her without a smile on her face. We are so blessed to have this wonderful leader on the team!
Mr. LaFond and his team make all of the horn pieces Vi Bella carries and we are blessed by his partnership and dedication to his craft.

Because of you, we are able to employ 30 artisans all year round. We love that Vi Bella challenges us with new designs."
