The Courage Silk Wrap.
We created this silk as a tribute to Gord Downie; an iconic Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, writer and activist. We chose this word to describe his incredible impact on shaping Canadian music culture, bringing Canadians closer together and his battle with cancer.
$10 from the sale of each COURAGE Silk Wrap will be donated to the Sunnybrook Hospital Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research.
This design is made in 100% silk ribbon hand dyed in black, white and grey with a soft wrinkled texture. We’ve added a Canadian made sterling silver charm hand stamped with the word COURAGE. Wrap it around your wrist or ankle and tie it in a knot or bow and let it inspire you to live each day with courage.
If your memory of Gord comes in the form of another word, we can certainly stamp an alternative word instead and make the donation to the Sunnybrook Hospital fund in his name. You can choose a Round charm as shown (max. 10 characters), Heart charm +$24 (max. 5 characters) or Small Leaf charm +$24 (max. 7 characters). See Stamping Information tab to learn more.
We will knot the silk on each side of the silver charm to keep it in place. For additional shine, add sterling silver spacers (+$10/pair) to surround your stamped charm instead of knots. Available in 3 shapes: Donut, round or rectangular. Remove the knots or spacers if you’d like to move your stamped charm to another silk ($+28) or silver chain.
Silk ribbons can withstand getting wet during hand washing but we don’t recommend wearing in the shower, a chlorinated swimming pool or hot tub.
Elements: Sterling silver & 100% silk.
