Bagheera is the Black Panther in the Jungle Book, the book written by Rudyard Kipling, who always has his eye on Mowgli, the boy cub adopted as a baby by wolves. Our elegant black bracelet with its red and green bands seeks to capture the sleek and beguiling strength of this black cat. Panthers are in fact Leopards and of the five species in existence today, three are 'critically endangered', and two endan gered. Bagheera and his relatives have become a rare sighting indeed, and our bracelet is, we hope, a fitting reminder of this most wonderful pussy cat.
Many of our bands are named after rare (endangered) animals as a mark of respect and to raise awareness of their impending extinction.Written in the 19th century, the Jungle Book is an apt subject for us is a story of people and animals living side by side in the jungles of India. It shows how each helps the other and our Jungle Book set celebrates the joyful connection between people, animals and trees (the forest). It's one of our favourite stories and reminds us just how how important our link or band with Nature is - as Leo Tolstoy said "One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between Man and Nature shall not be broken".
We plant a tree for everyone who joins the band. Our COP26 bands will being coming out at the beginning of September - a big month in the battle against global warming!
