Plant Dyed Pure Silk Scrunchie

$13.00

Our pure habotai silk scrunchies are plant dyed and layered with reclaimed temple-blessed offerings of husks, herbs, fruits and celebratory marigolds. Exceptionally soft and silky, this hair accessory minimises breakages, pulls and kinks, resulting in healthier, stronger hair. 

You will receive your scrunchie either in the Shimla Sunset or Bombay Rain colour.

The stunning Shimla Sunset shade uses marigolds and ceremonial coconut husks to dye the pure silk; these hard coconut shells are traditionally broken in blessing rituals to symbolise the shattering of the ego, inviting the intention to let go of illusions and claim our divine, fearless nature.

Beautiful Bombay Rain is predominately dyed using pomegranate, a symbol of eternal life, fertility, beauty and power. The marigolds represent passion, creativity and joy and our intention with these scrunchies is to invite living with an abundant, love filled heart.

Worshippers arrive at India’s Siddhi Vinayak temple carrying heartfelt wishes and offerings of fragrant flowers. Once blessed, these flowers adorn the temple for a moment in time before being placed in the river to make space for fresh offerings. This project has been created in collaboration with a fair trade, socially conscious non-profit that teaches, employs and empowers locals to gather and craft used blooms into truly unique pieces to cherish for all time. 

Once printed, our pure silk is crafted into beautiful hair accessories by an Ahmedabad based institute that gives physically challenged women a sense of belonging and pride in their abilities. In this way we spread beauty in more ways than one, because life’s gifts are for sharing and we are all connected. 

Ritual 

Pair with your outfit, wear in your hair or simply around your wrist as a pretty band to remind you, you are protected and connected to all that is.

We love the half up bun for a chic day look. Start with with half of your hair up in a pony and gently tease hair on top of your head to make it look more voluminous. Twist your pony into a messy bun and secure with your scrunchie. 

Composition 

100% pure habotai silk - made in India using natural plant dyes.

Cherish and care for your gift by handwashing incold water, with a mild natural detergent and line dry.

As with all things in nature, the botanical dyes will fadeover time, but this is to be appreciated.
