Headwraps are not only beautiful, they represent more than fashion, it is a statement. Wearing the headwrap fives you the ability to represent your culture all while remaining beautiful and classy. African headwraps are much more than beautiful colors and fascinating style; there is a rich cultural history.

The headwrap originated in sub-Saharan Africa, the wraps to symbolize wealth and social status. Head wrapping is literally a way that African’s for centuries have been able to non-verbally communicate their place in life. The headwrap of a woman walking down the street will tell you if she’s a widow, a grandmother, or if she’s a married young woman. It’s an element in the daily living of an African woman. Headwraps protect your head from the sun.
