This black & gold brass leather hair barrette is a wardrobe essential for long hair. Eco-friendly materials, and nifty hardware so set them apart from simple basic black.
Sturdy, practical & classic eco-friendly style, 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 solid metal 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.

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.
