One tree planted for every item purchased!
A simple black hair barrette is a wardrobe essential for long hair, and this simple, eco-friendly design kicks up your look with simple rhinestone stud fasteners. Practical, guilt-free bling for your hair!
Sturdy, practical & classic eco-friendly style with a touch of sparkle, this barrette goes with almost anything and is 100% plastic-free. Biodegradable & upcycled scrap leather is securely attached to a French style metal hair clip, it and colored with 100% natural non-toxic antique homemade dye, finished with a beeswax polish, zero-waste paper packaging, and shipped in up-cycled padded mailers. But really it's just a great, sturdy hair clip with a simple everyday design. The flexibility and durability of leather combined with sturdy but sparkly rivet hardware will make this your new favorite hair accessory!
The leather is heavy grade, providing a sturdy and strong hold for a variety of hair types. Available in 2 sizes: a standard "large" or a giant "extra large" for thick or long hair.
What size barrette should I get?
Large is a standard "large" barrette
- The clip: 3" (80mm)
- Leather upper design piece is 3.75" x .75" (100mm x 20mm)
- Perfect for ponytails, and half up-dos for thicker hair.
Extra Large is great for long, thick and curly hair
- The clip: 4" (100mm).
- Leather upper design piece is 4.75" x .75" (120mm x 20mm)
- Hard-to-find size, perfect for thick or curly hair, or for twisted updos for longer hair.
Note that this design uses the same clip sizes as my standard large and extra large, but a slightly shorter and thinner ~1/2" leather strip, to accentuate the sparkles.
Functional beauty, quality craftsmanship
Or should we say, crafts-woman-ship? All barrettes are handmade, originally created for their designers' own long hair, with consideration not only for beauty, but also functionality, comfort and durability using eco-friendly materials and practices. 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.
