This luxurious scrunchie features a gorgeous lavender hue accented with a traditional antique gold design for the perfect balance of color and shimmer. Banarasi Brocade is a specialty textile art of Varanasi, India. This handwoven textile crafted on a loom where Zari, a traditional gold metallic thread, is inserted into the warp and weft to create complex, lustrous patterns. Banarasi Brocade is traditionally worn as a special occasion sari, loved for its lightweight feel yet rich look.

Once we sourced the fabric from India, we partnered with Crafty Hands, a US-based organization that helps teach new skills to and employ women impacted by Covid-19-related job loss, to stitch these scrunchies. We are proud to be able to support the great work this organization is doing and hope to work with them on more projects in the future.

We only create scrunchies when we fall head over heels for a fabric, therefore each small batch is made with lots of love.

Variation is a part of the charm of hand-made products, telling the story and giving the mark of the creators who craft them. Due to the hand-made nature of the product, no two scrunchies are exactly the same.
