Fair OOTD | Ethical Roots

featuring S A Y A Designs

Talk about unique - this hairpin is something I've never seen before. Can you believe it is made from root wood salvaged from old plantations!? Not only are they super resourceful, each hairpin you purchase plants up to 10 endangered tree species back into the rainforests in Indonesia! It's like a full circle of life in your hair ;)

Created by designer Victoria, S A Y A Designs works directly with Balinese artisans to hand carve each and every single hairpin. These artisans have been passing down the traditions of woodcarving for several generations. This craft is quite impressive, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how durable they were, too. You know how I like my products to last :D & did you know the oils produced in your hair will keep your hairpin naturally polished and beaming? Real cool! 

I'm wearing the Soka Bud which plants 4 trees and is available in 3 different colors. Back the project for $35 & this hairpin can be yours! I'm also giving one away in this post if you enter your email address below {U.S. entries only please}. Giveaway ends next Saturday! 

S A Y A Designs has 5 more days to go until their Kickstarter comes to an end. This is a great time to get your hands {or should I say hair?} on a beautifully crafted hairpin & help support a wonderful new project!

Remember my Zaachila sandals in last weekend's Fair OOTD? Well, here's another lovely pair of them - the Alicia! They are made by the Zapotec Indians of Mexico, who have been weaving textiles for over 2,000 years. The use a process called hand-carding to straighten wool fibers in order to create textiles. They use plant-based dyes for coloring, and the process is done by the entire family. It's teamwork from start to finish with 5 sisters and their mom. Because each pair are handmade, not one is exactly alike  - just how I like my closet.. unique!
