Machete products are sourced from Italian made and imported acetate. Each is fixed with hypoallergenic, stainless steel posts.
About Machete jewelry:
The tortoise shell acetate we source is high quality and non-petroleum based, imported from Italy. Cellulose acetate is a natural and renewable material, providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based material.
Cellulose acetate is made by extracting cellulose fibers from cotton and wood pulp to create a transparent paste. This paste can then be colored, processed, and molded for a variety of industrial applications. For our jewelry, it is cut from a large block into thin sheets, and then cut again into smaller rectangular blocks.
Due to the high quality and natural material of our tortoise shell, each pattern is unique and may vary.
All of our earring posts are made from hypoallergenic stainless steel.
