The turband features a wrapped knot and bandeau fashioned by hand from luxury crushed velvet fabric. Velvet has a wonderful texture so it’s the perfect fabric for creating dramatic turbans as well as for her easier to wear younger sister, the turband.
Using crushed velvet I have created a one size turband that generously fits an average size head – from 20-23″/50-58cm – crafted around a light easy to wear and comfortable headband. When not being worn (unextended) the turband measures approximately 7.5″/19cm high x 6″/15cm wide overall x 3’/7cm across the arms of the turband, and also features an easy to wear internal metal headband for stability.
The headband is available in a range of colours and finishes, just from my British Craft House shop: mhw_millinery, and looks gorgeous too with vintage appliques!
Wear and Care Guidelines
Dress to impress – when you receive your headband you will notice my logo tag is sewn into the inside of one of the “arms” of the headband. To maximize the turban effect of your headband, the logo tag “arm” should be positioned on the right when you wear your turband.
How to care for your turband – this opulent velvet fabric is not washable, so please don’t use hair styling products in close proximity as they may stain the fabric. Remember too that the turband isn’t waterproof, so should be protected or removed if being worn in damp or wet conditions.
Please enjoy your turband!
