Angisa Earrings Handmade from Suriname

Regular price $9.99 $9.99 Sale

The secret language of Surinamese head wraps is revealed in these beautiful earrings. Made from traditional colorful fabric they are replicas of Angisas, the head ties that Creole women in Suriname developed to speak their mind.

From "Meet me on the corner" to "Baka Oto" which means the back of a car, designed when the very first cars were seen in the city of Paramaribo, the Angisa is a cultural phenomenon that reveals the history of Suriname.  

They are always a color combination so please choose your main color. 

Sizes vary per vendor. Please take your measurements and find your size. 

How to take your measurements
To find your correct size, use a tape measure and take these measurements. Stand with your back straight in front of a mirror, to make sure that you measure correctly and that the tape measure is kept level.

1. BUST
Measure under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and over the fullest part of your bust. Don’t pull the tape measure too hard. For fitting a bra, you also need the measurement just under your bust.

2. WAIST
Measure around your natural waistline. This is the narrow part of your waist, about an inch above your navel. Relax and breath out before you measure.

3. HIP
The hip should be measured around its fullest part (about 8 inch. below your waist).

4. INSEAM
This is the measurement from your ankle to your groin, when you stand with your legs straight. If possible, ask a friend to help you. This can also be measured on a pair of pants with the proper length.
