SS Cinque Plait Ring
Inspired by the leatherwork braids of the trenzadores and the intricate designs of Japanese Takedai braiding. Baltera’s 5 plait ring pays homage to these traditions while refining them with a subtle intricacy.
There are few designs that rival the Braid, or Plait, for permanence. The braid, first found in hair styling in ancient Africa has been found in every culture and tradition since. The braids ability to change has helped it both embrace and defy categorization: by gender, religion, class. It's ability to transform, to be simple or complex, traditional or progressive has allowed the braid to become a vessel for symbolism from the Egyptians to the Celts, and Native Americans, right up to today.
