Appropiation

We believe the head wrap is for everyone, because it has always been for everyone. For many centuries, women and men around the world have worn head wraps in numerous styles, with various fabrics, for many different reasons. 

The word turban comes from Turkey where in the 1200s, men would wear turbans to protect themselves from extreme weather. 

In Jamaica, the Nyabinghi Rastafarian women wear modest wraps to protect the power in their locs and to show respect for God.

In India, the Sikhs wear their first head wrap known as a pagris after a coming-of-age ceremony. 

At The Wrap Life, we wear headwraps because they’re fun and they allow authentic creative expression. Our main goal is to encourage our diverse group of Wrappers to use our products for whatever reason, but overall to feel confident and beautiful. 

If you still have reservations, we strongly suggest start with a head wrap from either our solid or contemporary collections. When you feel ready to honor the beautiful history of this form of expression, feel free to explore our other collections.

For centuries people around the world have created their own cultural meanings and intentions behind their head wraps and today we are free to do the same. Create your own history.

We wear head wraps because they’re beautiful and they allow creative self-expression.
