About

Outside Thinker

I had already been making hoops for about half a year and wanted to start spreading the hoop love throughout my community! I thought the best way to do this was by starting a small hoop business where I could sell my wrapped, polypro, & special concept hoops!

We are well known for our one of a kind, custom, handmade flow props. Anything from hoops, staves, poi, anything your mind can think of! Ali will do her best to create your dream flow prop!

Some of our previous concept hoops:
Feather Hoops
Rainbow Star Hoop
Poops (Poi-Hoops)
Squoops (Square Hoops)
Triangle Hoops
Knot Hoops
Incepti-Squoop (Square Gyro Hoop)
Gyro Hoops
and MORE....

We've also done many vending & performing gigs - if interested please contact Ali via phone or email.

Hello! Welcome & thank you for visiting the Etsy shop! Hooping/Flow Arts has helped me gain not only physical benefits but mental and spiritual benefits as well. The Hoop is one of the greatest instruments that helps guide our artistic energies through dance - this is not only a great meditation but can also help us focus on one thing - ourselves; your spiritual side. My goal is to spread the love and happiness of hoop dance throughout my community - to make just one positive impact on someone else's life.

All hoops/products are handmade and completely customizable! Please email us if you don't see what your looking for and we would love to help you one on one!

Additional policies and FAQs
~FAQs~

If you are new to hooping feel free to contact Ali for help with tubing sizes and diameters, she would love to help you out! ♥

1. How long until I receive my hoop/flow prop?

Custom hoops take anywhere between 3-5 days to process due to customization of colors and sizes, and 1-2 to ship from time of purchase. You will most likely receive your hoop within a week of 7 business days.

2. Any special care for handmade hula hoops?

YES! Since all hoops are made collapsible for shipping purposes, your hoop will come collapsed in figure 8 form or coiled up. It is very important not to keep your hoop stored collapsed or coiled up! If kept stored collapsed this can cause the hoop to become permanently disfigured or even kink the tubing! You should always keep your hoop stored in a dry, cool place where it is fully open (not collapsed). We will send out instructions on how to carefully and correctly open and collapse your new hoop, as we are not responsible for any kinks.

3. I just received my hoop and its NOT a perfect circle. What can I do?

Because your hoop has been coiled/collapsed up in the box for shipping for the past 3-4 days it's going to be a bit "egg shaped". Not to worry, this can be fixed and is completely normal! This is also why we tell you not to keep your hoop stored collapsed and only collapse/coil down for travel purposes.
♥ Connect your hoop
♥ Gently push down on the floor where parts of hoop are "misshaped" (remember not too hard you don't want to kink your hoop!)
♥ Repeat a couple times until it has formed its circular form
♥ If it is still misshapen - some good hoopin should do the trick!
♥ the SUN can also help your hoop reform its natural shape (leave it lay in the sun for a few hours)
♥ (for polypros) Also, keep your hoop unconnected for a day (after following steps above) this will also help your hoop retake its shape

4. Polypro and Polyethylene, what's the difference?

Polyethylene is a much harder tubing and generally a little heavier than polypro. Polyethylene tubing is used mostly for BEGINNER HOOPS.
Sizes available: 1" ID, 3/4" ID, 1/2" ID

Polypro is a very soft and light weight tubing, great for dancers! We carry Polypro in LOTS OF COLORS! Polypro is more for ADVANCED HOOPERS.
Sizes available: 3/4" OD, 5/8" OD

5. What is OD and ID?

OD = Outer Diameter
ID = Inner Diameter

6. How do I know what size diameter to choose for my hoop?

For beginner's, when choosing your diameter for your hoop you should take a tape measure, and measure in inches, from the floor to or right below your belly button (should be somewhere around 36-40")

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns that couldn't be answered!
