All bows are made in a smoke free environment and are heat sealed to prevent fraying. They are all made by hand, stitched and glued together for durability. All bows are mounted on a high quality hair band that is a smaller than the usual size so that you don’t have to wrap it around the hair too many times. All mountings will be sewn and glued on, so they won’t pop off. Elastics are prefered by many as they are safer and more durable. Every pair of bows comes with the Signature “Belle” pony charm. She is there to help make kids smile and hopefully bring them a little bit of luck in the ring.
