Diane von Furstenberg's Colorful Runway Accessories are Made from Telephone Wire in South Africa

Turns out the armfuls of colorful bangles worn by models during Diane von Furstenberg's spring 2010 runway collection in New York retail for less than $25.

Recycled from old telephone wires, the bracelets were made by artisans associated with The Bartel Arts Trust, a South African-based community art center that promotes local crafts. The DVF-approved bold accessories can be purchased at Gifts With Humanity along with organic fair trade coffees, home decor and note cards and stationery. Right in time for the holidays, happy (guilt free) shopping!
