The imisi bracelets story began when an idea met with a Greek myth... Early last century, in the south of Greece there lived a woman known as the best nurse that had ever existed. Her name was Ariadne. She travelled constantly from town to town and from island to island, her mission being to help all women who wanted to start a family, with her kindness and her valuable knowledge and expertise in child birth. The myth says that her reputation spread further and further over the years, making many women to consider her a Godsend. That is, probably, the reason why everyone joyfully accepted an unusual habit she had: on the hand of each newborn child she delivered to the world, she would fasten a colored ribbon, which she would then wrap around its wrist three times. The legend has it that many of these random children met during their adulthood while still having their ribbons, making them believe that a common good fate had brought them together. Some ended up falling in love with each other and started their own families, some struck a bond of deep, true friendship, and some collaborated professionally leading to great success. Either way, they all found their half, making each other’s life better. The idea was born from a "bet" that had to be won: a phrase may be the opportunity to say something about yourself, can bring two or more people together, it can unleash friendships and make relationships take off and fly!!! Besides, doesn’t everything begin from a few words? The idea… Once you have picked your favorite imisi bracelet, wrap it around your wrist, make two knots and carry on with your life… but keep your eyes open! Somewhere, sometime, you will meet someone who wears another imisi bracelet! Get closer and compare your imisi phrases. If they match, if they make sense together, then you just found what you are looking for. A soul mate in friendship, love, fun or in the way of thinking. If, again, you already know the person you want to share this experience with, all you have to do is offer the imisi bracelet that “completes” your own! To refine the idea, we searched around the world in order to find the best quality ribbon and the best materials to create our own patterns. Thus creating the imisi bracelet "pairs" with phrases that perfectly fit each other. The sentences were born day by day, drawing ideas from conversations heard on the street, from feelings engendered in our everyday life, dreams that we would like to come true or even words that we ourselves would like to say or hear , believing that this the only way to be “heard” by all those who know how to live their every day life and wish to add color to every moment! Imisi bracelets don’t borrow opinions or quotations by famous scientists, philosophers or artists, because we want our sayings to be fresh, unique, simple and modern, just like the people we love to meet every day. So far, since imisi bracelets made their debut, they have enjoyed great success and this is evident not only by how many hands carry their messages, but also by the hundreds of messages we have received from people around the world, who send us their phrases asking to be imisi bracelets! And we intend to listen and hear their voices...
