Simbi - Hair Bracelet Review / Supporting a Cause for Clean Water in Haiti

Maryam Z | 3:14 PM | | | |

About Simbi Inc:
Simbi Inc. is a Haitian company that is composed of two separate branches: Simbi Fashion for clothing and Simbi Accessories for fashion accessories. Today, the main collection of Simbi Fashion is the "Dimanche Matin" line and the main product of the Simbi Accessories is the Hair Bracelet.



Simbi Fashion has been created for men and women who seek simplicity, elegance and also a comfort in a garment. The fabrics that are chosen for these bracelets are organic and eco-friendly. Simbi fashion is a high-end quality craft in the tradition and the culture of Haiti. The clothes to from Simbi are hand embroidered in La Vallee de Jacmel which is a small community in the mountains overlooking the coastal town of Jacmel. 
Over 100 years ago, a congregation of Belgians nuns moved into the valley and began teaching generations after generations pf embroiders who are now known for the refined quality and the delicacy of their work.

Supporting a Cause:
80% of the population in Haiti lives in poverty. The mortality rate of Haitian children who are under 5 is 7%. Aqua Haiti is a non-profit foundations that is based in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The organization was created to support, promote and finance instillation of water purification systems throughout the country. It was founded by the owners of Simbi Inc, which is a fashion apparel and accessories company that is based and run in Haiti.


The Aqua Haiti foundations will help aid the transparent flow of funds that are raised by Simbi Inc. for the purposes of installing water filtration systems. Simbi Inc., in turn was created at the same times with the same purpose to eradicate water borne disease in Haiti.

In 2010, Haiti has suffered a devastating cholera outbreak and most of the Haitians have either no access to any clean water or they cannot afford it. In Haiti, Simbi is the water spirit! She is called upon to facilitate solutions to the problems. Therefore, it is only appropriate to call upon Simbi Inc. to help bring clean water to the people in Haiti.

Each Simbi Bracelet that is sold will bring enough funds to purify one gallon of water per day. 2% of all Simbi Sales from Simbi Inc., including the soon to be launched Simbi Fashion Line, will be donated Directly to Aqua Haiti.


My Review:
I am a strong supporter of companies that support many causes. Especial causes that help those with clean water, food, cure for disease, animal cruelty and more. I was given a wonderful opportunity to not only review Simbi's Hair Accessories, but to also share with you the amazing thing thing they are do. It's sad to read and hear about the suffering that is going on in other parts of the world. Being supportive and sharing with the world what a company or person can do to support and help those in need is a great opportunity.
I received the Exotic Skull/Zig/Damask and the Haiti Art Hair Bracelets to review:


These Simbi Hair Bracelets can be worn on the wrist just like jewelry.



It is also designed to tie up in the hair without damaging it. 



Simbi offers a wide variety of colors and also modern designs that are inspired by the Haitian culture. Since Simbi's launch took place in the year 2012, their bracelets are in over 300 stores in the United States and in other parts of the world as well. The designs on the Simbi Hair Bracelets are one of a kind. They are durable and great quality as well. I have been using the Simbi Hair Bracelets on my daughters hair for a week now and they are still in great shape compared to other hair bands I have used. 

I know I had a set before from another company and they weren't as great... I would use it maybe three or four times and next thing you know it was stretched out and it didn't hold properly. It could have been the material that was used for those bands, but I'm not to sure. I love wearing the bands as a bracelet, especially the ones with the skulls on them. I guess you can say that I have a thing for skulls and the design on the Simbi Hair Bracelets are something I adore. When wearing the bands as a bracelet, they aren't tight on the wrist, of course flexible, comfortable to wear and they don't irritate the skin. When I say they don't irritate the skin, what I mean is they don't make you itch like some fabric bands. I love the bands design, the different uses and the fact that the support a great cause!

Check out Simbi Hair Bracelets for other unique designs. For every bracelet purchase, Simbi creates one gallon of purified water and also creates jobs for the people in Haiti. Your support will save, improve and empower their lives. You can also find Simbi on:
