Medical ID manufacturer, American Medical ID, has launched their toughest product yet, The Stainless Steel Paracord Bracelet, in partnership with The Community Cloth (part of The Alliance) to empower refugee women in Houston, TX.

HOUSTON, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Community Cloth ("TCC", part of The Alliance) is partnering with leading

medical ID manufacturer, American Medical ID, to empower refugee women in Houston, TX.

Through the partnership, artisans of the micro-enterprise help manufacture one of American Medical ID's newest and toughest products, the Stainless Steel Paracord Medical ID Bracelet. The product combines the benefits of wearing a medical ID with the durability and reliability of a paracord bracelet. American Medical ID uses 550 TYPE III Parachute Cord which can withstand the roughest adventures of the wearers – people living with medical conditions, chronic illness, allergies, implanted devices, or those taking medication such as blood thinners. Paracords are also known to be useful in many survival tasks and like medical IDs, can help save lives in an emergency.

By purchasing an American Medical ID Paracord Bracelet, customers directly help Houston community artisans. Each of the paracord medical ID bracelets, available in black, blue and green, are hand braided by a Community Cloth artisan. To ensure product quality and consistency, TCC implements one-on-one product development work, training, and relationship building with each artisan. "The Community Cloth helps us with new projects so we can earn more money to help our families. Every month I have a paycheck and that is very important," says Khatera, an artisan from Afghanistan and a TCC Advisory Board member.

"We are so very proud to be partnering with The Community Cloth and thankful to be given the chance to support refugee women artisans as they seek to gain financial independence and improve their quality of life. As a 100% Employee-owned medical ID company based in Houston, TCC's economic, educational, and social goals couldn't be closer to our hearts," said Rick Russell, Founder and CEO at American Medical ID.

American Medical ID has been the leading manufacturer of high quality, custom engraved medical alert jewelry for over 24 years. In an emergency where every second counts, a medical ID can quickly and effectively communicate important medical information to first responders and other health professionals. The company's mission is to put a medical ID on every person who needs it. The company works with several communities and organizations to achieve this goal.

The Community Cloth is a microenterprise initiative of The Alliance that empowers refugee women in Houston, Texas. It targets economic, educational and social goals through the provision of training and peer support, and by expanding market opportunities for refugee women artisans.
