our one-of-a-kind modern art-inspired quilts are all made by one person, the black snapper, by hand and with her trusty sewing machine. these non-traditional quilts are generally inspired by modern art (and in particular, the color field paintings of mark rothko), although no specific paintings or color combinations are reproduced here. and, of course, as they are handmade, they contain all the imperfections and loving touches you're looking for (we hope).
similarly, our handmade clips are made from "rescued" leather and have excellent alligator clip hardware. this allows them to stay secure in straight or curly or thin or thick hair. the clips are also suitable for attaching to your clothing or accessories (bags or even shoes). because the clips are tenacious, however, please use your best judgment in attaching them to your delicate fabrics and materials. you might want to insert a small piece of rubber (from a thick rubber band) to cover the teeth prior to clipping to certain items. These clips are not intended to be worn out in the rain or to otherwise become wet.

A NOTE ABOUT QUILT CARE: please do not hand wash or launder your quilt with water. remove surface dirt with a good shake or a vacuum cleaner. steam (from your iron [set to "silk"] or a steam machine) is great for removing wrinkles and generally refreshing. dry cleaning is recommended for tougher situations. of course, prevention is the best medicine. to keep your quilt looking new (if that's your thing), keep it away from liquids, messes and prolonged direct sunlight...
A NOTE ABOUT LEATHER CARE: leather changes both color and texture over time. these leather clips are intended to fade naturally. prolonged direct sunlight will accelerate this process. not intended to be laundered or dry cleaned.
