Small tribal Kuchi cuff bracelet great for tribal and fusion belly dance costuming. Wide cuffs look great in a stack with other bracelets or wear alone for an impactful statement piece. These cuffs look very tribal, but are quite easy to wear. The pin and hinge design allows for easy on and off wear. Kuchi cuffs are the original tribal dance bracelet! The story of Kuchi jewelry, like all tribal jewelry, is rich with influences from many cultures. These beautiful pieces originally came from the nomadic Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, along ancient routes between the seasons, moving down from the mountains in the winter and back to their homes in the summer. The word Kuchi itself is derived from a Persian word meaning migration, in relation to nomads, and does not describe a particular group or people, but rather a state of being.
