Susan Lanci Butterfly Dog Hair Bow - 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 UltasuedeÂ® fabric that we import from Japan. This soft, comfortable fabric is washable and colorfast. For all of those designs that use crystal, SwarovskiÂ® crystal is used exclusively. These hair bows are manufactured in the USA.
