Horse hair jewelry is stylish as well as environmentally friendly. All of the horse hair suppliers that I read about use tail hair from live animals--not the whole tail, obviously, but trimmings. It is cultivated like sheep's wool or llama hair. As an example, many horse farms in England traditionally trim the horse tails for showing purposes.

Horse hair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. The longer tail hair is mostly used for belts and necklaces, while the shorter, finer mane hair is used for bracelets and other jewelry. My research indicates the first use of horse hair was by the Spanish in the 8th century as a textile. One historic use was for gloves commonly used for fishing in the medieval age leading up to the 17th century in cold climates. Gloves woven from horse hair fibers were a very popular option in cold climates because horse hair is a very good insulator and also has a natural oil and rigid structure that allows them to be woven tightly and remain waterproof and warm. Hair braiding dates back to the first dynasty of Pharaoh Menes. Ancient Egyptian sources describe Libyan men with long hair, braided and beaded.

I have tried to learn the four-strand braid technique. I found it confusing, very time-intensive and the end result left a lot to be desired! The search for a braiding machine has been futile. My admiration goes to those who are proficient in the art.

The art of braiding has mostly survived by western prison inmate hobbyists, making reins, belts, bracelets, earrings, hat bands and barrettes. Horse hair jewelry gives its wearers an earthy, rustic look.

These are great Western-styled bracelets that are nicely done, elegant, yet very rugged. You can wear these beautiful bracelets anywhere and not worry. This bracelet is 1/2" wide and just slides to adjust to a very small size (about 4" around) to a very large size (about 9 1/2" around). They are all handmade and no two are exactly alike.

What is Horse Hair?

Horsehair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. Horsehair can be very stiff or very fine and flexible. Mane hair is generally softer and shorter than tail hair. The texture of horsehair can be influenced by the breed and management of the horse, including natural conditions such as diet or climate[55]. Horse hair is the only kind of hair that is harvested without killing the animal. The hair comes from the mane or tail. Think of it as a haircut. The barber doesn't kill you to lower your ears[56]. Horse hair is strong. Items made from it lasts for years, if not decades!

What is Horse Hair Braiding?

Most horse hair braiders use a square or box braiding technique to create the strands. The strands are about 1/8" square and then can be sewn together side-by-side to make a wide surface for any project. For example, a seven-strand hat band will be 7/8"wide.

What are Horse Hair Knots?

Knots cover areas where items are sewn or glued. Knots are decorative as well as functional[57]. The knot, sometimes called a button, also stops the braid from unraveling, similar to a rubber band on a French braid.

What is the meaning of Black Color?

Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It was one of the first colors used in art[6]. The color black represents strength, seriousness, power, and authority. Black is a formal, elegant, and prestigious color[7].

What is Brown Color?

Brown is a composite color made by combining red, yellow and black[19]. Brown is a natural color that evokes a sense of strength, reliability and confidence[20].

What is the meaning of White Color?

White is the lightest color. It can represent a successful beginning. The color of snow, white is often used to represent coolness and simplicity[106], the color of perfection and purity[107].

It only lasted 4 days before it broke. That being said I live a pretty rugged life style and that was longer than any wrist watch or anything I've worn for that matter.

Black, Brown and White Three Strand Horse Hair Bracelet HH83-2

What do you think of the Appearance?
stars
The width was just right for a man's wrist, not too thin or thick. The multi colored strands make a very high quality appearance.
What do you think of the Durability?

I especially like a loop closure that makes adjusting the size easy. It is easy to take on and off compared to a lobster clasp.

Thank you for sending the beautiful horse hair bracelets.
I used some for Christmas gifts for my "horsey" friends and some were given as thank-you gifts.
They were perfectly pictured on your site and all those who received them were thrilled.
I will keep you in my "favorites" and order again.
