The Athena headband is handmade in London from a beaded vintage trim (the exact date of origin is unknown) and is named after the Greek goddess who symbolizes wisdom. 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 piece is made from a black cotton which has been embellished with golden coloured beads and thread that are sewn in a floral pattern. It’s made complete with ivory beads that are sewn in the middle of the decorative flowers. 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 cotton 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.
