These bracelets each have their own unique and distinctive design. Some may be one of a kind, with only one ever made, or part of a limited production offering, a limited number ever to be made.
The “Francis Cary” is unique in its design. This bracelet has a strip of woven or braided elephant hair set between the 2 knots of a traditional African elephant hair bracelet. This bracelet is difficult to copy because of the unique design. Created by Francis Cary and the pride of Justelephant.com.
The thickest elephant hair bracelets are almost all sold out, with no chance of restocking, so a limited production offering. These are examples in this the Unique Bracelets Collection. The Thick hair is much sought after by collectors as well as someone that is looking for something special.

Francis Cary is a dedicated nature conservationist, not only when it comes to elephant and rhino but also to fauna and flaura conservation.
A percentage of all proceeds from this website are donated to an elephant sanctuary –Bayete- Various other donations are also made during the year to other needy sanctuaries or organizations.
Over the years Francis has received awards for his contributions and work in the prevention of wildlife poaching and the breeding programs associated with rhinos. The Zululand area and elephant coast are particularly affected by poaching. This area suffers from extreme poverty. Isimangaliso World Heritage Site authorities and Ezemvelo Wildlife authorities have stations here that patrol 24 hours a day in the hope of controlling poaching. Various feeding schemes have also been implemented for the people.
When it comes to conservation there is far more than meets the eye. A large amount of planning and preparation is required which involves many work hours from many different people, not only in South Africa but also from other countries.
