Elephant Hair Bangle

  • Insider Notes

    • The organic silhouette of this bangle is the result of founder Patrick Mavros' fascination with the origins behind the traditionally worn Elephant Hair Bangle. For years, people across the African continent wore bracelets made of elephant hair, which they believed imbued magical properties. They were gifted as tokens of love and luck. The interwoven strands with silver wire knots on this bangle are a revival of this legend; it's carefully hand-crafted in Mauritius from sterling silver.

      - Sliding closing system
      - Crafted from recycled sterling silver
      - Handmade in Mauritius, shipping from Mauritius

At the Patrick Mavros headquarters in the hilly outskirts of Harare, Zimbabwe, wildlife and family are the central priority. The family business is operated out of a studio and wildlife sanctuary, which the four Mavros brothers call home. Each piece, inspired by Zimbabwe’s extraordinary wildlife, is hand-crafted with sterling silver and 18-karat gold,  intended to be timeless heirlooms that will be handed down between future generations.
