These are our signature products. It’s a good looking bracelet, it’s inexpensive, and it comes from Zimbabwe. Should you get the urge to do some research, you’ll find that other vendors of elephant hair bracelets (many with intricate designs) charge $100 or more for them. Definitely a unique bracelet. Not something you see often if at all unless you live in Africa. Simple, but looks very exotic. Amazing price compared to other online sellers. This is about 30% cheaper than what other online sellers are selling these for. Elephant hair bracelets are created by using hair from the tail of an elephant. This hair is collected along the paths that elephants walk and at watering holes. Elephants walk along the same paths for many years -some paths are as old as 200 years although modern man has had a severe impact on the ecology. Many successful men and women are drawn to elephant hair jewelry including many who are famous.
