The WIT Bracelet
The WIT bracelet is made of leather and stainless steel. Being that WIT is designed to train for the workforce, it is important that these two materials are outlined as they apply to WIT and moving forward in the future.
Leather has been in use for thousands of years. In the beginning, leather was used primarily for clothing and tool-making. Over the years, leather has also been used in old fashioned industries such as saddle-making and is still used for gloves and boots as a means of modern protection. Today, leather is still a vital part of our culture. Representing something that is durable, but also incredibly adaptable, leather has stood the test of time. When you see the leather of the WIT bracelet, it is important to remember that we, as individuals, must be durable and flexible. While circumstances in life might not go as planned, we can be durable and flexible like the leather of the WIT band!
Steel is a combination of the elements iron and carbon. This mixture has withstood the test of time and revolutionized our country as we transitioned from wood to steel in the early 1800’s of the industrial revolution. It was used to build the railroad, improve our shipping vessels, build bridges, and other structures like the sky scrapers we see today. Steel is designed to be tough, yet moldable and adaptable. Made up of elements that by themselves are weak, when put together, they are strong. When you see the steel of the bracelet that is inscribed with CHS - WIT, remember that our members are adaptable, and that sometimes when alone we may falter, but together, we are strong.
