Looking for long, colourful leather bracelets

I really like the coloured leather bracelets in this photo from STREETFSN. Where can I get similar bracelets?

I think the Longchamp Veau Foulonné bracelet is similar, but I don't know if it's quite as long as those in the photo.

Best answer: I think they're all Hermes bracelets. Left to right:

The Behapi Double Tour.

The Kelly Double Tour.

The Rivale Double Tour.

The Clic H.

"Double Tour" is Hermes' way of saying that the bracelet wraps around the wrist twice.

Response by poster: Thanks!

Now if only they were a bit less expensive...

Urban Outfitters has something similar and considerably cheaper.

If you're interested in patterns as well as colors, Jon Wye recycles cuts from his graphic belts to make bracelets. The bracelets are one-of-a-kind, so they're not on the website - but if you email him and ask for a certain pattern, there's a very good chance he'll have it. (Full disclosure: Jon is a friend and design client - but I really like his stuff!)

Also, some on Etsy.

go to a thrift store - they tend to have lots of belts. just buy a few in colours that you like, cut them down to a bracelet length, and punch new holes. same look, waaaaay less money

Yeah, I was going to say, these look like a lot of leather dog and cat collars I've seen. Just cut them to size; use a belt for a wider bracelet?

xedrik, exactly - I was just coming back here to say that - any nice pet supply place will have lots of fancy collars that you could either get small ones and cut them down, or bigger ones and wrap them around twice.

MUJI makes these leather strap double-wrap watch bands. You can buy the bands without the watch face: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?V=1&Sec=5&Sub=131&PID=699
