Friendships - in different ways

We kiss, share coffees or exchange gifts.  Friendship Bracelets - one of the oldest ways to show we care.

Friendship Bracelets date back to ancient Central America and Native American. Primitive friendship bracelet styles are based on native patterns and colours dating back to the Navajo in the 16th century.  

Around 481 – 221 BC, China introduced decorative knots for everyday life which later became significant in folklore.  Throughout Asia different variations of the Red String of Destiny is told.  According to myths, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the finger of those couples that are destined to be lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances.
