Sustainable Sundays: fairyshadow

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality and higher environmental value.

Upcyclers is a team of 1498 Etsy shops that are upcycling all over the world!

Each Sunday we feature a sustainable product from one Upcyclers shop.

This week's featured shop and item...

Upcycled Red Flower Hair Tie by fairyshadow

This handmade upcycled red ponytail tie is made with recycled cotton. Each petal was hand sewn and secured to a beefy no metal ponytail elastic. Great for every day ware or a splash of holiday color this season.  Reclaimed fabric is soft, very comfortable to wear, and even washable! Making this tie great for kids or adults.

fairyshadow sells handmade flower hair accessories crafted from upcycled textiles. Flower headbands, hair ties and hair clips are hand sewn by Tania Prosser.
