Each one of these bracelets is made with Binchotan, the finest charcoal in the world. Each bead is polished by hand by an old craftsman in Korea— an arduous process taking months to finish. From afar, the beads are smooth and shiny, almost like porcelain. Up close, the fine grains of the original oak wood are still visible. White charcoal has an extremely high carbon content and has been known for centuries for its beneficial effects on our blood circulation, body temperature and mental spirit.
