The African butterfly holds bridal veils securely, even in moderately short hair. Women in the medical, food, beauty or hair industry all share the benefit of having their hair out of the way while looking neat and professional. Other happy customers include grad students, new moms, dancers as well as sailing, hiking, canoeing and outdoor enthusiasts. Grandmothers right through to young girls are all sure to find an African Butterfly that appeals to them. The African Butterfly Company employs both full-time and casual African people in the Gauteng region of South Africa, who are empowered to better their lifestyle and gain dignity by providing for their own families. This employment and the fair wage they receive from the African Butterfly company is vitally important to women and men who have to cope with poverty and the devastation that AIDS is wreaking on the bread winners in their community. To protect the product and the women and men it employs, the African Butterfly hair clip has been patented world wide.
