For thousands of years African Mythology has believed that the connection between heaven and earth is the elephant. The legend of the bracelet dates back over 1200 years. It was believed that wearing the bracelet would protect against harm, sickness & misfortune. The knots symbolize the powerful forces of life. Movement of the knots along the wire blends the forces of nature with life's continuous evolution and brings strength to the wearer. Elephant hair bracelets are made from reeds that are boiled to be softened. While the reeds are still very hot they are molded into the bracelet shape and then given knots.
