It is absolutely beautiful and everything I had hoped for! It easily dresses up simple tops or holds my shoe back while I'm teaching with a little more flair than the average bun! Love it! Thank you!!!

The scarves are beautiful!! I bought two and they are both so unique and lovely! Love how soft and lightweight they are - very comfortable to have on all day. Really beautiful, affordable, and not to mention I love what it stands for... highly recommend!

About

I hand dye silk bandanas as a self soother for stress and anxiety to empower women in the workplace.

My business started colloquially for myself. I’ve been struggling with self love and self confidence for quite some time. When I was young, I had a habit of rubbing a silk blanket on my face to ease my mind at bed time. I was able to identify a problem within myself because I wasn’t happy being submissive to my anxiety. I wanted to be known as a woman that embodied love, strength and happiness. So I started to observe my behaviors. I learned what my triggers were and what helped me recover. I was able to start breaking the grid my brain was used to. But I still needed comfort. I needed a reminder. So how might I provide comfort to myself in order to feel more confident? It all came back down to silk and the comfort it provided. As I wore them, people began to notice and internalize my story. I then realized that this pain point I identified in myself is also being felt by so many other women. How might I bring camaraderie to others that need empowerment? Silk Diaries.
