When you do, you'll be making a difference in the life of an underprivileged woman in South Africa. Make a knot once in the large hand-painted silk ribbon to adjust size to your wrist and then open with a toggle and bar.

Oh Voilà is a unique range of jewelry and accessories, designed by Barbara Kasasa. All parts are locally produced in Cape Town, South Africa, and handmade by formerly underprivileged women who generate income for their families. Oh Voilà is using South Africa’s rich cultural heritage of the ShweShwe fabric in a contemporary, minimalistic way: Afro chic with Attitude.
Every item goes through the hands of many skilled South African artisans; whether it is the printing of the tubes, the casting and painting of the beads, the weaving of the ribbons, the stitching of the leather, the assembling of the separate items, the painting of the silk ribbons etc. It is a joint and passionately African effort to make a unique piece. Oh Voilà works directly with a team of dedicated women who are empowered to generate income for their families.
When I saw these I was in love with the colors immediately so I ordered Multi, PinK/Orange & 2 Blue since blue is my favorite color, then had to go back for Turquoise. I wear them constantly and am so glad I got them. The best part is that they help animals and women in South Africa!
