Vango Vango Bracelet

€70.00

The Vango Vango was originally a closed metal cuff worn by slaves and used to enchain them during the night. When the slaves were set free, many retained the cuff, cutting and styling it to form an open bangle to wear in remembrance of their emancipation. Its origin is attributed to the Sakalava tribe of southern Madagascar and it is still worn today across much of the country. Now viewed as a sacred talisman to protect the wearer, the coastal Vezo tribe of southern Madagascar will not allow their fishermen to go to sea without one.
