Dusty Rose – Looks Like Suede Hair Bow



Dress up your hair with this beautiful bow made from upcycled, faux-suede fabric. The bow is perfect for a low ponytail and suitable for medium-thick hair. The small logo plate has a butterfly stamp and is made by Angkor Bullet Jewellery from old bullet casings.

The metal French hair barrettes are from the French company Delsol. You probably have not heard about them, but they were actually the ones that invented the French barrette back in 1920. They are the only company that produces this kind of hair barrettes in Europe, and their French barrettes are of a very good quality.

The bow comes with a matching drawstring pouch.

What is upcycled fabric?

Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabric. Traditionally, this leftover fabric ended up in landfills, but nowadays, you can find it at the local markets around Phnom Penh. By using this material to make new items such as the hair bows, we prevent beautiful material from going to waste while at the same time contributing to a more sustainable garment production.
