Genuine African Elephant Hair Bracelet
DIFFERENT DESIGNS AND STYLES
Francis likes the bulk of the bracelet to be "elephant hair". He tries to incorporate as little metal as possible. There are often requests for imitation elephant hair bracelets made of solid silver or gold - there are also many requests for bracelets made of leather or plants. Because of the tradition of Francis Cary he does not make them.
Over the years there are many different designs he's created. Many of these are now in other parts of the world also created by other people. Some of them cannot be copied. From time to time someone will ask for a new style that is not familiar. These are always made on request.

Today this belief remains strong in certain areas of modern culture. The traditional elephant hair bracelet has sliding knots allowing it to open so it can fit over your hand. Once it is your hand, you tighten the knots so that it fits your wrist.
In recent times different designs have been created for you to choose.

IS IT LEGAL TO OWN AN ELEPHANT HAIR BRACELET?
In August 2016, CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) passed a law prohibiting trade in elephant hair. Retailers still in possession of elephant hair and in possession of a wildlife traders licence (allowing them to sell elephant hair jewelry) are allowed to sell their products until such time as their stocks run out. You are allowed to have an elephant hair bracelet in any country provided that it is purchased from a licensed trader.
Francis Cary is the third generation elephant hair jewelry artisan. Francis lives in the heart of Zululand in the area known as The Elephant Coast.
His father lived in the area before him and passed the trade on to him. In more recent times, Francis has introduced metals into his creations. All closures and fittings are molded and made on site. The entire elephant hair bracelet is hand crafted by him.
Today Francis enjoys the rich history of his ancestors and is proud of his workmanship. It is with great sadness that your trade will end in a few years once your stock of elephant hair runs out.
