Braideez©, braideez.com, Braideez© braiding wire is a recently patented braiding material that makes braiding your horse’s mane and tail easier on you and your horse. By using this plastic-coated copper wire in place of yarn, thread or elastic bands, you can create moldable braids that can be formed by hand without the use of needles and pull through tools. The braids stay in, can be adjusted in moments, and come out in seconds without damaging a single hair! The wires are soft, easy to cut with scissors or nail clippers and reusable.
The idea for using wire for braiding horse’s manes and tails was conceived by Sandy Rabinowitz, the managing partner of Witzend Workshop of Bethany, Conn. Witzend Workshop is a family-owned and run business that manufactures Twisteezwire, an arts and craft wire. Sandy is a life-long equestrian who hated to braid manes because she suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome. Braiding for shows using needles and yarn/thread or elastics proved too painful. In a moment of inspiration and desperation she decided to use her company’s wire to braid her horse before a show. The result exceeded her expectations, and now she likes braiding.
