After my Insta-stories on Saturday, a couple of people asked about my leather hair barrette. This is a handmade piece by the talented @evicraft . I bought it on @ebay last year and then found Evi on @etsy.
I really like this barrette. The work is super delicate, the material is natural, and the details are amazing.
The only thing I wish I could change is to have a more solid stronger metal base so it could hold all my hair instead of only 1/3. Other than that, it is super pretty, and I am happy with it.
Recently, I started slowly (actually, very slow 😀🙏) updating my wardrobe and accessories opting for more ethical, handmade, meaningful pieces made out of natural fibres and materials. I was never into fast fashion, always tried to invest in fewer but better pieces and be inspired by minimalist lifestyle. However, soon I realised that nowadays even expensive clothes and accessories are made in Asia in quite questionable working conditions. Knowing this doesn’t allow me to enjoy purchasing such items. So I started looking into small businesses creating beautiful things in more a traditional, often handmade, way. I’ll let you know how I go, but because I am all for slow fashion, please don’t wait for many updates too often or soon 😆.
In meantime, if you follow such amazing artists/designers doing pretty clothes and other beautiful things on Instagram, please feel free tagging them below. I’ll be happy for any recommendations 🙏. at Waverton, New South Wales, Australia
