I am trying to figure this one out. What is the big attraction with these things?

Beats me. They collect dirt, body oils, and dull over time.

LOL... Yes, I suppose they just collect dust and absorb body oils...

The original purpose was a handy way to carry a certain length of paracord to have with you at all times. But the artistry to accomplish this weave, combined with a never-ending palette of paracord colors and buckle colors has made these a fashion accessory that has a much wider consumer appeal. And as Les Stroud pointed out last week on Survivorman, it was puzzling to figure out how to unravel the bracelet, and even more puzzling to figure out where to cut it and retain most if its length (he guessed right).
