An elegant and original headband
The fabric used for the making of the headband is a slightly thick cotton , with batik patterns and indigo dye.
Batik is a dyeing technique typical of the Hmong people, an ethnic group settled in North Laos but also in Thailand and Vietnam. It consists of tracing the pattern on the fabric with wax before dyeing. The wax will protect the patterns from the dye and this is how they will appear white on a blue background. It is a technique of dyeing “with reserve” as are also the Tye Dye or the Ikat .
The fabric used for the headband is that of the playsuit and of the Khmu shirt. You can therefore try a total look by associating the headband with the playsuit, or be matched with your man if he wears the shirt.
In any case, this headband will be an original and elegant accessory that will certainly enhance your head and face or make a very nice gift.
A zero-waste accessory
MUUDANA uses beautiful traditional fabrics for its creations. They represent days and weeks of work for artisans and an invaluable textile heritage. So when Aude, the creator of MUUDANA, noticed that some of these fabrics would be discarded after cutting clothes, she decided to find a solution.
Aude then began to develop a collection of accessories made only with fabric scraps from MUUDANA. The beautiful fabrics that make MUUDANA’s personality are thus enhanced down to the smallest cm2 and MUUDANA’s environmental impact is reduced accordingly.
Then for the manufacture of these zero-waste accessories MUUDANA created a partnership with a renowned NGO from Cambodia: Friends International. The objective of this association is to protect and help children and adolescents in Southeast Asia who, in a context of poverty, are victims of violence, prostitution or exploitation.
To ensure the well-being and the future of these children, the NGO offers income-generating and equitable activities for parents as well as vocational training for adolescents. This is how the association has acquired real know-how in the making of accessories. An expertise that MUUDANA is delighted to support through this partnership and the making of zero-waste accessories.
