This bookmark is made from authentic Mongolian braided horse's hair with a silver-toned Mongolian toggle button and green glass bead.

My family and I lived in Mongolia for over 16 years. While my mom was visiting us there, we were pondering how I could make bookmarks with something from my host country. As she and I walked through the open market one day, there they were - these hand braided cords! I have to admit that I had to wash them about four times before the water ran clear. :) They truly were "authentically" horsey!! (I actually added some lemon essential oil to the final rinse to kill the rest of the germs!) The Mongols still use them on their saddles.

I've embellished this white one with a traditional silver-toned cuff link and a green glass bead with a silver-plated bead cap. These "toggle buttons" are still used on traditional Mongol clothing.

This bookmark is 19 inches long...plus straggler hairs. :)

Genghis Khan lives on!

Your purchase will come prettily gift wrapped.
