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.
