This hair clip was created using a vintage, silk tsumugi kimono fabric. Tsumugi is created out of pre-dyed threads. The warp and weft threads are different colors (called shot fabric) giving the fabric a wonderful depth of color. This tsumugi silk features a blue plaid-like pattern over a black background. Typical of tsumugi, this fabric is highly textured and has slubbing. The fabric has a wonderful "bumpy" texture.
The front of the hair clip is about 3.75 inches (9.5cm) long x 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) wide.
The back has a silver colored, metal, french hair clip that is about 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) in length. This is the length of the actual clip portion and does not include the metal on either end of the clip that secures the clip to the front. The clip is riveted onto slate blue leather and secured onto the front of the hair clip. The leather used to make this clip was a scrap piece leftover from making handbags so it was saved before entering the landfill.
Please note that this hair clip is created using a vintage fabric. This is the actual clip available for purchase.
