A Navajo bolo tie is a type of necktie that originated from the Navajo people, a Native American tribe primarily residing in the southwestern United States. The bolo tie consists of a cord or braided leather that is fastened around the neck with an ornamental clasp called a "bolo slide" or "bolo buckle." The distinctive feature of a Navajo bolo tie is the presence of a decorative slide or buckle, often made of silver and adorned with intricate Navajo designs. These designs can include traditional symbols, such as arrowheads, feathers, thunderbirds, or geometric patterns. The slide is usually made using the Navajo silverwork technique, which involves intricate stamping, etching, and often incorporates turquoise or other gemstones. Bolo ties are considered a form of Southwestern jewelry and are commonly associated with Western fashion. They have a rich cultural significance within the Navajo community and are often worn as a symbol of Navajo heritage and pride. Today, bolo ties are not only popular among Navajo people but are also embraced by individuals across different cultures and regions as a unique and stylish accessory.
