Hand braided horsehair items make great gifts. Whether it be a simple key chain or a more elaborate ceiling fan pull, horsehair can be a unique decorator item in an equestrian or western theme room. As a keepsake, a horsehair tassel with braided heel knot is a fond memory of the trails traveled with your gone, but not forgotten equine buddy.
Below are examples of ceiling fan pulls and wall decorations. Please contact us for prices and how to best supply your horsehair.
