Exposed bra straps may be a sartorial no-no for the rest of the year, but seem to become a prerequisite for sunny days. www.brastraps.ie was launched in December 2008 and offers a large selection of ornate bra straps which can be described as shoulder jewellery to glamorise anything from a simple vest top to that sexy black number.
The hand-beaded bra straps suit all ages and pockets ranging in price from €14.95 to €59.95 for Swarovski Crystal bra straps. Each bra strap is unique and comes in a fantastic selection of colours and styles.
Fairtrade bra straps available on the site are sourced both from Capetown in South Africa and Cali in Colombia, where women artisans work in cooperatives to produce these unique designs. These enterprises provide job opportunities for previously unemployed women and empower women through work. Brastraps.ie is the brain child of Carmel Knight who is originally from Limerick but is now living in Dublin.
The range is currently available from www.brastraps.ie and a small number of retail outlets, with free delivery within the EU.
