    Excellent customer service! Found the perfect solid color to match the other side of my printed hair tie. Excellent quality! I have two of these now and they are used often, they hold their shape and sturdiness. Highly recommended.

    I LOVE my new headband. It is cute and comfortable and beautifully made. Every time I put it on I smile. Someone always smiles and compliments me on it. A wonderful present for myself, these will certainly make lovely gifts as well. Put one on, and put on some smiles!

    Item description: Self Tie Headband Belt (2 colors/can be worn 2 ways solid/pattern) Pattern choice: Swatch 51 Solid choice: Gold Excellent quality, great communication with seller, exceeded my expectations all around. I purchased this item to wear as a headband, but it certainly could also be worn as a belt as the fabric is thicker than a standard self-tie headband and is well-made. As long as you tie it firmly, it doesn’t slide or shift while wearing. I would buy again from this seller.

Ikot Iban: Wear your crown

International travel sparked my interest in the story that fabric and art can tell. Curated fabrics are used to create beautiful and functional pieces, designed with real life in mind. Use my pieces to show your own sense of style and make them into your own art. Functional, durable and beautiful.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Wash your headbands and headwraps on the hand wash setting in your washer and air dry them. They are durable and can be washed as often as needed. I often wear either a Ikot Iban headwrap or headband during high intensity workouts and therefore wash mine very frequently. Ikot Iban products are designed to last frequent hand wash cycles. Please contact me if you run into issues with care.
