PLATYPUS MAX BARRETTES

My leather barrettes are handmade by me in my home studio. I typically have a variety of pre-made barrettes in a variety of colors and styles, available for immediate shipping & retail sales (via Etsy or in person). Many of my designs can be made to order for bulk or wholesale orders, and I also am open to custom design ideas. Let me know what you are looking for!

My barrettes begin with raw, undyed vegetable tanned leather. I source this as scrap from other crafters, out of environmental concerns for waste reduction. The leather is then cut to size, embossed or stamped, then dyed in various colors, and hand-finished before being securely attached to high-quality French-style barrette clips. My designs are inspired by nature and the world around me, finished with a metallic sheen. Rivet attachments will typically use a coordinating metal tone, in antique silver, brass or copper.

I currently offer a standard “large” size as well as an oversized “extra large” size. These sizes are intended for ladies with long hair, accommodating adult and teen ponytails and twists. Packaging is a simple, eco-friendly display card, which can be either recycled or composted.

I designed my barrettes with my own long hair and active lifestyle in mind, and wear them almost daily. Thus I can confidently vouch for their quality and comfort.
