Amina Headband

This product is unavailable

The Amina headband is a powerful yet feminine piece and so is named after the Hausa warrior queen who is still remembered as, “Amina daughter of Nikatau, a woman as capable as a man that was able to lead men to war.” It has been handmade in London from an amber coloured vintage trim with a floral embroidery design, the exact date of origin is unknown. By incorporating vintage materials, we are able to wear a rare piece of history while also giving the trim itself a new lease of life. This particular headband is made by gathering the trim to create a rich volume. Making this piece is a real labour of love and requires the most hand sewing of all the previous War & Drobe designs. To give the headband body, wadding that was too small to use from previous styles has been broken down and sewn inside.  The headband is lined with black organic bamboo viscose and a soft metal aliceband is sewn inside which gives it structure. It has been designed and made to sit comfortably to your head so you can wear it throughout the day without it being too tight.

Please note as this piece is made from vintage trims it may have minor flaws.

This headband comes inside an organic bamboo viscose fabric bag and is placed inside a foldable box. It's recommended you store the headband inside the bag and box to avoid crushing or damage.
