The leather bracelets are one of the world’s oldest and most popular articles of jewelry. Since time immemorial leather bracelets have always been used as a decorative ornament by men and warriors. Every civilization and empire had its own fashion statement. Greek soldiers wore leather bracelets for both practical and fashionable reasons. These were used on forearms/wrists as defensive bands, as decorations that shielded them from blows from attackers and also let one know a man’s status as a warrior during ceremonial celebrations. High ranking soldiers often wore elaborate, highly decorative leather bracelets. Generals, for instance, often wore defensive bands that were made from precious metals and gemstones, while the average field soldier wore thick leather bracelets with hardly any adornment. Since warriors often swung their swords for the wrists in order to disarm (literally) their adversaries, these thick leather bracelets protected many a soldier. The leather bracelets were also popular with both men and women of all social classes. But the leather bracelets held a special place in Egyptian society. We know this because they often included Scarab Beetles, which were sacred to them. This insect was a popular symbol of regeneration and rebirth. They were worn by both men and women. However, leather bracelets have evolved over time. In the late 60′s early 70′s the leather bracelets was very popular among hippies. It was a conventional method to express one’s self by wearing self made clothes and accessories of earthy tone colors. The trend of wearing leather bracelets started a long time back with first rockers on television. In those days, not everyone was allowed to wear leather due to its association with rebellion. In the late 70′s early 80′s the leather bracelets took a different direction. It became very popular among rock and heavy metal followers.

Leather bracelets were predominantly black, red, and white heavily covered with metallic spikes, studs, and pyramids. But in the 90′s there was no significant for leather wristbands until the turn of the new century when the art of accessorizing took a leap. Images of the 60′s type leather bracelets started to show up again but with a new twist. Designers and Leather Craftsmen were getting creative with their leather bracelets designs, finding new ways to highlight the wrist and out came the wrap around bracelet. Celebrities like “Kristen Stewart, Emma Watson, Johnny Depp, and Victoria Beckham” popularized leather bracelets by wearing them. Slowly, the general population started noticing and wearing them too. Soon, they become no longer an accessory that was gothic or extreme.

Leather bracelets certainly are “all the rage” even now. With time, styles might have changed but leather bracelets are still in vogue.
