Timeless Upcycled Hair Bows

The Yara Hair Tie is Upcyled from Deadstock Fabrics

— January 21, 2020 — Eco
Christy Dawn, the sustainable, vintage-inspired apparel brand based in Los Angeles, recently launched the sweetest hair accessory -- the Yara Hair Tie.

This timeless bow not only boasts an elevated and sophisticated aesthetic but was also made sustainably from piles of leftover fabric called “deadstock." These elegant bows were designed to repurpose and use fabrics that would otherwise be sent to landfills. Once a suitable fabric is sourced, these beautiful bows are made by hand by a team of artisans in an ethical factory located in downtown LA.

The Yara Hair Tie is available in multiple colorways including Sky Daffodil, Daisy Wreaths, Persimmon Rose, and Charcoal Garden -- to name a few.
