Why this product matters

Stitch x Stitch: Today there are over 30,000 commercial sex workers in Ajmer. They originate from marginalized segments of Indian society and are forced into the commercial sex trade due to poverty, gender inequality, lack of education, and limited skills. The women we work with dream of escaping abusive relationships, moving their families to safety, feeding their children, investing in education, and giving their families a chance at a better life.


This Organic Cotton Kantha Scrunchie from Anchal Project is handmade in a modern cross-stitch design and perfect for keeping your hair tidy! With its naturally-dyed cotton fabric and hand-stitched details, it’s as pretty as it is handy. Ethically  made in India, these scrunchies have a beautiful hand-stitched cross pattern on their naturally-dyed background. These scrunchies use off-cuts from Anchal’s larger projects like quilts and clothing, making these scrunchies zero waste and super eco-friendly! Plus, because they’re made of natural cotton, they can simply be washed and reused when they’re dirty. Skilled artisans make these handy scrunchies in India—receiving a fair wage for their beautiful work, of course! As with all Anchal Project products, the individual maker’s name is hand-stitched onto the product tag.

This beautifully-made scrunchie is just what you need to accessorize and express yourself! It’s handmade, meaning it’s made to last. Plus, it’s strong enough to wrangle even the thickest hair!

These scrunchies are sold individually. They’re available in four colours: bone (natural unbleached cotton), rust (red), navy (dark blue) and charcoal (very dark grey). All are made of natural cotton and hand-stitched in their striped pattern. You’ll really see and feel the difference in quality that handmade makes!
