Labels play an important role in our daily lives and decide how we interact with one another. We are given labels from the minute we are born, however, Unlabeled believes they can cause diversion and isolation — especially when it comes to mental health. Labelling can result in stereotypes and assumptions, creating a negative stigma and alienating individuals and further generating a reluctance to seek help or finding treatment.
Instead, let’s be open-minded about our perceptions of others. Living in a complex web of labels prevents you from self-growth and reaching your full potential. So together, let us drop the labels.
stigma prevents 40% of people with anxiety or depression from seeking medical help.

taking pleasure in the differences
Our bracelets feature a Kintsugi inspired gold plated charm. Kintsugi is known to be a delicate art form of Wabi Sabi where broken pottery pieces are reassembled with lacquer dusted or powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
Kintsugi is built on the idea that by embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create something more unique, strong, beautiful, and resilient. Unlabeled uses this concept to show that your differences are what make you more authentic and you are beautiful just the way you are
