HORSE HAIR GIFTS
AND
MEMORY PIECES
If you're looking for that special gift for the horse-lover, consider one of our hitched or
braided items.

Our pieces are not prison-made or imported. All are created right here in our store in
Kokomo, Indiana.

Horse hair has been used as a fiber for centuries. More recently, common uses for horse
hair include instrumental bow strings, brushes and fabric. However, this versatile material
can be used to create a myriad of items from tack (bridles, halters, ropes, girths) to intricate
works of art.

Where does your horse hair come from?
We import all of our mane and tail hair from Mongolia where it is used as a part of their
textile trade. Once removed from the horses, it is sorted for color, length and thickness. The
hair is then cleaned, sanitized, and bundled for export. We do not use hair from dead or
slaughter horses.

What is the difference between braiding and hitching?
Braiding is a technique of weaving stands of hair, each over the other, in various patterns to
create the desired look. Our braids are quite a bit more complex than the standard
3-section braid.
Hitching is a technique were "pulls" of tail hair (10-12 strands of hair per pull) are knotted
over a nylon string on a wooden dowel support to create a cylinder of hitching. Each stitch in
a hitched item is an individual half-hitch knot. This process, though very involved, can be
used to create quite intricate patterns. Creation of hitched items typically takes one to two
hours per inch depending on the complexity of the design.

Can you make a piece from my horse's tail hair?
Yes! We can create any of the items in this section incorporating your horse's tail hair.

How much hair should I send? Does it need to be cleaned?
When sending your horse's hair for a memory piece, please send a section of hair that is at
least the thickness of a pencil. Hair needs to be at least 30 inches long, but we can work
with shorter lengths, if necessary. Please shampoo, dry, and attach a rubber band to one
end of the hair section. Any left-over hair will be returned with your order.

I'd like something a bit different that what you have on your web site. Can you help me?
Absolutely! Just contact us and we can discuss your requirements.
