Frequently Asked Questions

What is the meaning of Black Color?

Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It was one of the first colors used in art[7]. The color black represents strength, seriousness, power, and authority. Black is a formal, elegant, and prestigious color[8].

What is Horse Hair?

Horse hair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. Horsehair can be very stiff or very fine and flexible, mane hair is generally softer and shorter than tail hair. The texture of horse hair can be influenced by the breed and management of the horse, including natural conditions such as diet or climate[53]. Horse hair is the only kind of hair that is harvested without killing the animal. The hair comes from the mane or tail. Think of it as a haircut. The barber doesn't kill you to lower your ears[54]. Horse hair is strong. Items made from it lasts for years, if not decades!

Horse Hair Tassel

What is a Horse Hair Tassel?

The tassel (plural tassels) is a ball-shaped bunch of plaited hairs from which at one end protrudes a cord on which the tassel is hung, and which may have loose, dangling hairs at the other end[56]. Tassels a finishing decoration on hat bands, key rings and zipper pulls. They are a universal ornament that is seen in varying versions in many cultures around the globe[57]. Every tassel includes a horse hair knot. Knots cover areas where items are sewn or glued. They are decorative as well as functional. The knot, sometimes called a button, also stops the braid from unraveling similar to a rubber band on a French braid.

What is Horse Hair Braiding?

Most horse hair braiders use a square or box braiding technique to create the strands. The strands are about 1/8" square and then can be sewn together side-by-side to make a wide surface for any project. For example, a seven strand hat band will be 7/8"wide.
I have tried to learn the four strand braid technique. I found it confusing, very time intensive and the end result left a lot to be desired! The search for a braiding machine has been futile. My admiration goes to those who are proficient in the art.

The art of braiding has mostly survived by western prison inmate hobbyists making reins, belts, bracelets, earrings, hat bands and barrettes. Horse hair jewelry gives its wearers an earthy, rustic look.

What is French Braid?

The French braid hairstyle has been used for thousands of years. It is the simplest form of braiding using three groups of hair[42]. Braid is the symbol of strength and unity. The term French braid is used on the human head because of the various lengths of hair involved[43]. French braid starts with three small sections of hair near the crown of the head, which are then braided together toward the nape of the neck, gradually adding more hair to each section as it crosses in from the side into the center of the braid structure. These are actually a simple three strand braid where all the hair is initially divided into three equal sections where one outside strand across the center strand and then pass the other one across the center one.

What is a Hat Band?

A hat band is a band or ribbon placed about the crown of a hat, just above the brim[127]. The original purpose of a leather hat band was to adjust the hat size to fit the head and cover the stitching where the crown and brim meet. Today, the hat band can be an attractive accessory to change the look of all felt and straw hats. Changing the hat band restyles and personalizes a hat conforming to one's taste.
