Our mission is to design the cutest hair accessories, to manufacture them responsibly with the highest quality, and to offer them at a great price.
Founded in 2006, Ribbies LLC is based in Austin, Texas and is mom owned and operated. The first Ribbies product was a simple patterned ribbon wrapped alligator clip sold in pairs, "Ribbies Clippies". The simplicity of the design was fresh. It also featured a foam strip as a nonslip grip, which worked really well. The foam strip innovation led to a deal with Target and is still an important part of the superior quality and value of Ribbies hair clips. All of our hair clips feature this non-slip grip which makes them hold exceptionally well in all types of hair, including thin hair. Nothing else works like Ribbies!
Now, in addition to the original clippies, the Ribbies brand includes many different styles of hair accessory, from basic hair bows, hair clips, headbands and other classic hair accessories to unique, trendy, colorful, fresh, and fun hair fashion for girls of all ages. The collection includes many products designed and produced exclusively by Ribbies.
