Hair shorter than required cannot be used. In general, the longer hair is the easier to make a ribbon.

There is no need to send more or shorter hair than required, please count at least a little bit.

The ribbon can be made of hair of several horses, too. Please turn hair into a loose loop, different colors and hair of different horses in separate loops, no knots or tight breids, and do not use adhesive tape. Hair need not to be washed.

The ribbon is done from the hair provided, unless agreed otherwise. We may add some matching hair to give support to the weave in case the hair is too weak by itself or there are not hair enough provided by a customer.

Our goldsmiths are professionals and all items are hallmarked and meet the industry standards.

Choosing a pattern

Hairs are set as the loom one by one. In order to have a visible pattern, individual hairs must have a colour difference. If the colour difference is small, choose a pattern with larger colour fields, such as ‘broad stripe’ or ‘flash’.

You can always choose ‘designer’s choice’, and we will choose the pattern to match the tail colors.

If you want to have an engraving, please write it to the area of additional information.


The neck is measured at it’s lowest point. The wrist is measured at the wrist bone. Please provide us with desired measure of the ready piece. It is usually 1-2cm plus the neck or the wrist size.

Ring size standards vary from region to region and we prefer to have the diameter in millimetres. Any unit will do, but please let us know which unit you use.
