This is a very old design that originated in Africa. Many years ago this style of bracelet was made from the tail hairs of a dead elephant. Because elephants are protected, : ) we carry on the tradition of the design, and ledgend that goes with it, by making these clever bracelets from other materials. The hunter would wear it on one wrist, and if it was a gift, that person would wear it on the other. Wearing it was supposed to keep one safe and healthy. The four knots symbolize nature's powerful forces: fire, wind, water and the sun.
