There are plenty of eco-friendly options out there for the more environmentally-conscious shopper, and we have the perfect collection for you at Design 44!
Our geometric hair pins are lovingly designed and crafted by one of our many small businesses, with a range of pastel colours perfect for welcoming summer into your wardrobe on a budget!

They may not be big, but badges with cute designs and messages sure make an impact to anyone whose eye they catch.

If you need to enhance the appeal of your outfit, or you have a message to share, pin badges are the way to go.
Our "self-love club" badge is a great way to remind yourself and others to take care of yourselves, and it is made from enamel, making it more environmentally friendly!
