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.
Please note that you will not be receiving the exact item seen in the photographs, but one that is extremely similar. My products are made by hand using natural materials, so there is some variation from piece to piece, but don't worry, all barrettes I ship are very similar to and, of course, just as beautiful as the ones you are looking at!
I am committed to using the most sustainable materials possible in my products, packaging and shipping. Leather for barrettes and earrings is all up-cycled scrap leather, sometimes referred to as "pre-consumer waste," which I source from a handbag maker, thus diverting her scraps from the waste stream, and maximizing the use of these already biodegradable hides. Packaging is made from unbleached, recycled kraft paper materials, and shipping materials are either made from recycled materials or easily recyclable, using as little new plastic as possible.
