Towards a circular textile eco-system
Our hair scrunchies were born out of a need to reduce and eliminate textile waste during production. While all our products are sized and designed to reduce wastage of fabric, we are still left with a small percentage of fabric pieces that we need to use more creatively ! We don’t consider small pieces of fabric as waste but as an untapped potential resource for which we are continuously exploring useful options. We also don’t use the term upcycled !
The other factor that we looked at while designing our scrunchies was that we wanted them to be 100% plastic free. So we replaced the conventional polyester elastic with natural rubber latex elastics. This makes our scrunchies not only 100% plastic free but also compostable at the end of their life.
Scrunchies in 100 % Hemp Fabric
These scrunchies are made from end fabrics we use to make our 100 % hemp aprons and tea towels and other home and kitchen linens.
Available in 6 solid earthy colours, these are great to pair with any outfit. Extremely durable, these will get softer after washing.
