Bows are double layered with Six genuine Swarovski Crystals with a French-style barrette mechanism. The closure on our barrette mechanism is a one piece construction so there is no mechanical hinge that can break or become misaligned. We also chose this barrette because it has a larger clamping area so it grabs more hair and stays in place better. Like all of our designs, our hair bows are made from genuine upholstery grade Ultasuede® fabric. This soft, comfortable fabric is washable and colorfast. For all of those designs that use crystal, Swarovski® crystal is used exclusively. Lastly, all of our hair bows are manufactured in the USA. With a degree in design, Susan Lancihas always felt that if something is truly designed well, it can withstand the test of time and its quality will never diminish. Susan Lanci has never viewed dogs as another fashion accessory, like a handbag or pair of shoes. Susan Lanci strives to create products that are stylish and whimsical, using premium materials that are comfortable for dogs. Her products are manufactured in Southern California, USA. All crystals used in Susan Lanci Designs are genuine Swarovski and come with a hang tag bearing their official Swarovski program identification number. Susan Lanci uses Eco-Friendly Ultrasuede microfiber materials which are soft, durable, machine washable, and resistant to stains and discoloration. These ultra-microfibers are so fine they can not be seen by the human eye- in fact, a single pound of these fibers could be stretched from the earth to the moon -and back! These highly durable fibers are abrasion resistant and can stand up to 200,000 double rubs!
