Love these headbands. I have wasted so much money on headbands that did not stay in place while spinning or running. These headbands actually hold my hair in place and do not move while working out. Plus, the headbands are stylish and repurposed. Thanks for making a headband that finally works.


Cool Stuff Made from Other Stuff

I have always been intrigued with Re-Purposing, even before it was cool. I re-purpose a lot of things in my life, including myself!

    I love to give vintage fabric and fashion a 2nd chance at life. I am a child of the 70s. Paisleys, polyester, and big collars speak to me. What can I say?

Allie loves cool stuff made from other stuff. “Re-Purposed” items are just so much more interesting than something brand new – they have a history, a former life, and maybe even a story to tell. Come to think of it, Allie herself is Re-Purposed!

Allie shops at all the 2nd hand stores her GPS will allow, rescuing abandoned shirts, pants, skirts, coats, and anything else made from interesting fabric. These garments remain vestiges of their former selves as Allie transforms them into funky, functional headbands for runners who want to look good while going green.

VestigeWear Runners’ Headbands:

95% made from re-purposed fabric (elastic is new)

Unique, only a few of each pattern

Soft, Absorbent, and Washable (recommend hanging to air dry, just to keep their shape). Some runners have told us they shampoo wash their VestigeWear headband in their after-run shower. Now, that’s multi-tasking!

Non-Slip Back made from re-purposed cotton velveteen, waffle knit, or cotton terry

Hand-sewn in a Pet-Free, Smoke-Free environment on a refurbished 50-year-old Singer sewing machine

NEW - VestigeWear now offers Vintage clothing, too!
