French barrette with flat bow made from organic, handwoven Peace Silk. We use raw silk, which has a coarser texture than silk satin and a more discreet luster.
We purchase the metal barrette from Delsol, which is a company in France. You probably have not heard about them, but they were actually the ones that invented the French barrette back in 1920. Delsol is the only company that produces this kind of hair barrettes in Europe, and their French barrettes are of a very good quality.
We have made the new bow with two different kinds of metal barrettes, so make sure you pick the right one for your hair:
Standard French barrette (3.7″): Holds a full ponytail of medium hair.
Barrette for fine hair (3.9″): Holds a full ponytail of fine hair.
Color: Sand beige
Material: 100% Peace Silk (metal French barrette: Stainless steel)
Made in Cambodia
The women from CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) in Phnom Penh make the hair bow from Peace Silk imported from India. CWSG provides a source of income as well as social support to the women in the group.
Silk is such a beautiful and versatile material, but did you know that the traditional way to produce silk is to boil the cocoons with the silkworms inside? That seemed unnecessary and wasteful to me, so I started looking for alternative ways of making silk, and I found out about Peace Silk/ahimsa silk.
