Announcing the 2013 Beautifully Wrapped Wall Calendar!
Celebrating the Fashion, Tradition and Culture of Headwrapping.
Throughout the ages, cloth has been used for adornment amongst various religious and cultural traditions. For many women and men, wrapping their head, whether in a gele style, turban, wrap, hijab or simply draping, becomes a visible extension of their personality and identity. But wrapping also has the power to immediately transport you to a place where you feel closer to the creator, and as a result, closer to your true spirit. It becomes a way to reverence the highest point of your body, the closest point to the heavens.
