Functional beauty, quality craftsmanship
Or should I say, crafts-woman-ship? ;) I wear my own barrettes almost every day, and can also attest to their practical, functional use and durability. The clips themselves are large, high quality, sturdy French-style metal barrette clips with tension bar. The leather is very securely attached to the clip with metal rivets that will be nearly impossible to remove.
