Our "elephant hair bracelets" are made from grass that very closely resembles the actual bracelets fashioned from the hair of an elephant (now illegal as well as morally reprehensible). According to legend, it is believed that such bracelets protected one from illness and brings good health. 

 

The two knots on this bracelet respectively represent the earth (fertility and ancestors) and nature (forces and spirits.) The strands symbolize the yearly seasons. Moving the knots along the strands is through to create a balance and blend between earth and nature, thus enabling the weary to be in sun with nature's rhythms. This design allows the wearer to adjust it by sliding the knots towards or away from each other.
