History of Wristbands
Wristbands have been used as both decorative and functional bands worn around the wrist for a long time, and have served a variety of purposes over the years. Some originated for identification or authorization purposes, while others were used during sports as a tool for wiping sweat away or preventing it from running down the arms. These sporting wristbands were usually made of terrycloth material. The silicone wristbands we produce here, though, gained popularity in the early to mid 2000s, and were initially worn to demonstrate support of a certain cause or charitable organization. These bands are still popularly used for these reasons, and all kinds of designs are available for purchase here on the site.
One of the reasons such bands became popular was through the “LIVESTRONG” wristbands which became synonymous with Lance Armstrong’s fight with testicular cancer. The bands are a great motivational symbol and help people stand behind a cause, and they have now been adopted by various charities and similar organizations thanks to their simplicity and effectiveness. Nowadays the uses of these silicone wristbands are numerous - whether as identification in theme parks and sporting venues, or just to express a personal message.

There are several types of wristbands around, and you can be sure we’ve got them at Amazing Wristbands.
