As our signature braid, the Amity braid is one that we hold close to our hearts. In all simplicity, it is a basic technique a braider learns in her first class. From choosing the material and color to the actual braiding process - as she weaves each strand over the other, she gains confidence through practice to complete her maiden braid. Created by our braiders, as young as 9 years old, we celebrate their first steps in learning a skill, forming a bond with the community, and rebuilding their lives.
