This adorable headband is made from zero waste fabrics sourced in Colombo, Sri Lanka as well as off cuts from Original Source and Supply's own productions.
The pattern pieces for these headbands are relatively small, which allows Original Source and Supply to use small pieces of discarded fabrics. This means they have had hundreds of different designs over the years, and sometimes there is only one of each.
Stitched by Renuka in Galle and on occasions Shamali in Colombo. Fabric is either 100% cotton or viscose/cotton blend. Ethically made in Sri Lanka.
Original Source and Supply was born from a passion for travel and the discovery of new crafts and cultures. Deepening an understanding of them through conscious sourcing, thoughtful developing and slow travel.
Always in small quantities. During these travels and inspired by life in Sri Lanka, hand sketched journals have been unfailingly kept, recounting tales of the journeys. They bring to life personal experiences of countries and cultures through illustrations. These are in turn captured on cards and prints and integrated into a collection of textiles and products collected along the way.
Original Source and Supply believes that fair and responsible trade is our duty. Endeavoring to always use natural, ethically produced materials, conscious of the original source.
