Description

The Organic Cotton Head Scarf

Introducing our exquisite collection of organic headscarves. Carefully handcrafted in India by local artisans. Each piece is a testament to their skill, dedication, and love for their craft. We believe in fighting the toxic synthetic fashion industry, and with these headscarves, we are taking a stand, one piece at a time. Let us take you on a journey through the beauty and craftsmanship that goes into creating these unique and sustainable accessories.

At the heart of our collection lies the use of organic materials. We have carefully selected premium-quality organic fabrics that are gentle on your skin and kind to the environment. These headscarves are made from natural cotton fibers sourced from organic farms.

By choosing organic, we ensure that no harmful chemicals or pesticides are used in the production process, safeguarding both your health and the planet's well-being.

But what truly sets our headscarves apart is the intricate art of block printing. This ancient technique, originating in India, involves using hand-carved wooden blocks to apply intricate designs onto fabric.

Ayurveda Organic Plant-Based Dyes

Organic Mud Dye, also known as mud resist or mud printing, is a unique dyeing technique practiced in India. It involves using a paste made from clay or mud, mixed with various natural substances like plant gums, to create intricate patterns on fabric.

The fabric is then dipped into a dye bath, and the areas covered with the mud paste resist the dye, resulting in beautiful patterns when the mud is washed away. This technique has been used for centuries in India and is known for its organic and sustainable nature.

Organic Indigo Dye is traditionally created from the leaves of the indigofera tinctoria plant, which is native to various parts of the world, including India. The leaves are harvested and then fermented in a process called "vat fermentation."

During fermentation, the leaves undergo a chemical reaction that converts the indican compound present in the leaves into a blue insoluble pigment, which is the indigo dye. This dye is then extracted and used for coloring various textiles, including organic cotton.

Organic Pomegranate Dye is obtained from the skin or peel of pomegranate fruits. The peels are collected, dried, and then ground into a fine powder. This powder is used as a natural dye, giving fabrics a range of warm, earthy tones.

Organic Pomegranate Dye is often used in block printing, a traditional Indian printing technique that involves hand-carved wooden blocks. The blocks are dipped into the dye and pressed onto the fabric to create intricate patterns and designs.

Organic Turmeric Dye is derived from the turmeric root, which is widely used as a spice in Indian cuisine. The root is boiled and then simmered to release the vibrant yellow pigment. Fabrics are soaked in this dye bath to absorb the color, resulting in a rich yellow hue. Like pomegranate dye, turmeric dye is often combined with block printing techniques to create unique and vibrant designs.

These traditional dyeing methods using indigo, mud, pomegranate, and turmeric showcase the rich cultural heritage of India and the use of organic and sustainable materials. The combination of organic cotton fabric and these natural dyes creates a product that is not only environmentally friendly but also visually appealing and unique.

Artisanal Craftsmanship Mastered Over Generations

Our skilled artisans have mastered this art over generations, infusing each headscarf with their expertise and passion. The process is meticulous and time-consuming, as each block must be carefully aligned and pressed onto the fabric to create the desired pattern.

To bring our designs to life, we employ vegetable plant-based dyes. These dyes are derived from natural sources such as plants, flowers, roots, and leaves, making them completely free from harmful chemicals.

The colors obtained from these dyes have a unique depth and richness, evoking a sense of connection with nature. Each headscarf becomes a canvas for these vibrant hues, enhancing your style while ensuring that no harm is done to your health or the environment.

The motifs and patterns adorning our headscarves are inspired by India's rich cultural heritage. From traditional paisley prints to geometric patterns and floral motifs, each design tells a story and carries a piece of history within it. Our artisans skillfully translate these age-old patterns onto the fabric, imbuing every headscarf with a sense of timeless beauty and cultural significance.

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, our headscarves are also a symbol of empowerment. By supporting local artisans, we create sustainable livelihoods, preserving traditional crafts and skills that have been passed down through generations. Each headscarf represents the hard work and dedication of these artisans, who pour their hearts into every stitch and print. Through your purchase, you contribute to their well-being and enable them to continue practicing their craft.

Wearing our organic headscarves is more than just a fashion statement; it's a conscious choice to promote sustainability and ethical fashion. We believe that fashion should not come at the cost of the environment or human well-being. By embracing these headscarves, you become a part of a movement that seeks to transform the fashion industry and pave the way for a more sustainable future.

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the product itself. We strive to minimize waste throughout our production process, using eco-friendly packaging materials and reducing our carbon footprint.

We also prioritize fair trade practices, ensuring that our artisans are paid fair wages and work in safe conditions. We believe that transparency and accountability are essential in building a fashion industry that values both people and the planet.

In conclusion, our collection of organic headscarves, block printed with vegetable plant-based dyes, represents a fusion of artistry, sustainability, and social responsibility.

Care Instructions

Plant-Dyed Organic Garment Care Instructions

 

How maintain your long lasting sustainable natural fiber garments — learn how to take care of your products, while extending their lifecycle and vibrant colors. 

— When it comes to washing your garment, you will want to wash on the “delicate” setting in cold water. Once complete, hang or lay your garment in the shade to dry.

— With all organic plant-dyed pieces, there is a possibility of natural bleed from the garment. Wearing your garment multiple times in between washes can help to prevent over-washing. We highly recommend using chemical-free detergent to keep these precious non-toxic garment pristine — even add a splash of white vinegar to preserve the color.

— When it comes to ironing your BTC organics, you will want to do so on the ‘wool setting’ of your iron. This allows the job to get done, while treating the fiber with gentle care. 

Be the Change Organics provide high frequency fashion made from natural fibers with benefits of sustainability, improved comfort, scientifically elevates your vibration (frequency), and reduces your exposure to harmful chemicals.

 

BeachCandy Swimwear Care Instructions

 

BeachCandy swim is carefully handcrafted locally in Los Angeles, made to last season after season when cared for properly.

Start by filling a basin with enough water to cover your swimwear. Soak your swimsuit with a capful of swimwear cleanser and repeat this hand wash process after each use and only in cool water.

Work the suds into and through the suit to clean all areas. We recommend soaking the swimsuit for 20-30 minutes until it does not smell like chlorine or the beach any longer. Hang it to dry naturally in a shady cool place. 

Do not wring, wrap in a towel, or put in a plastic bag when wet. Chlorine and chemical exposure may increase the chances of damaging your suit. Rough surfaces, and/or heat may also shorten the life of your swimsuit fabric and Swarovski candy. We also recommend that you don’t accidentally toss your BeachCandy in a washing machine, dryer, or spot clean with harsh chemicals.
