Jules Sherman, the designer for Yosifa Penina and Yosi Girls , graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and won the Alexander Graham Bell Award for "Design and Invention". Pretty cool. She then went on to use her talents to give us girls lovely clips for our hair. But she didn't stop at just pretty. No, these clips are also waterproof (perfect for the pool this summer!) and washable to boot!
Yosifa Penina creates barrettes, hair clips,and ponytail holders out of molded flexible pvc. The Yosifa Penina line is designed with tweens and women in mind (yet my 4-year old daughter wore one out to dinner tonight), inspired by a love of illustrations. The line also includes belts and larger hairclips. The Yosi Girls line is a cute line of barrettes and elastics in the shapes of various creatures, fairytales, animals (we love the frog! Oh, and the bluebird hair elastic is just adorable!) and candy, in smaller sizes perfect for kids.
Yosifa Penina and Yosi Girls take the environment and safety seriously, and only use materials that are lead, mercury, chromium and cadmium free. Good news for the planet, good news for us! So if you're looking for a fun way to brighten up your 'do this summer (or your daughter's), these clips are sure to make you smile. Currently available from Smashing Darling.
