Specialist in top quality bow hair

SieLam Bow Hair® stands as a leading European supplier of top quality bow hair. With more than 25 years in this field, our bow hair is trusted by renowned workshops in Paris, Lyon, Munich, Berlin, Vienna, London and beyond. 

Professional musicians perform with SieLam Bow Hair® with unwavering confidence.  The hair consistency, resistance, durability, grip & feel on the strings and the exquisite sound produced are the key reasons that professionals put their trust in SieLam Bow Hair®. 

Our stringent quality control, combined with strong supply chain management ensures that bow makers and restorers can rely on the consistent quality of our bow hair as well as the stability of supply even when there is severe material shortage.  During the very difficult Covid period, when raw horse hair supply dropped to record low, SieLam Bow Hair® remained steadfast in supplying our long-term clients with premium quality hair while many competitors ran dry of stock.
