The bracelet reminds you of your childhood village and the family you left behind when you joined the army. Your life is complicated and dangerous now. No one expects you to die of old age in your bed.
Yet when you look down at your wrist and see the Braided Bracelet, you can remember the cold nights by the fire and the evening your mentor gave it to you. The memory is a comforting one.
Epic Armoury’s Braided Bracelet is a bracelet decorated with intricate leather braids. It is made from top-grain leather braided strips that run 9 cm up the arm. Secure the 8 cm diameter bracelet to your wrist by tying the leather cord through the diamond-shaped brace.
The Braided Bracelet is a handsome accessory, and stylish enough to be worn with a variety of characters or even as a modern fashion statement.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
