The making of peace bracelets, or rangzen bands as they are more commonly known, began when Tibetan women imprisoned in Chinese jails in Tibet collected fragments of material to make bracelets to wear as a silent protest for peace and freedom in their country.
This small and ingenious action spread outside of the jails where Tibetan people began to make and wear rangzen bands to stand in solidarity.
It is now a global symbol of freedom.
These bands are made by Tibetan women, nuns and monks living in India.
