Most horsehair jewellery is braided. The jewellery proposed by Caracole is hand-woven. The weaving, which is an art in itself, requires a great of attention to detail and infinite patience because horsehair, which is of unequal thickness, short and relatively inelastic, imposes special technical constraints. Only a few master craftsmen in the world have perfected the technique. At Caracole, the strands are first sorted according to their length, uniformity, strength and colour, according to the customer's desired pattern. They are then hand-woven, hair by hair, to achieve a texture that is both soft and durable.
