Much like the rest of our collection, the MIMU Scarf was born from our years of frustration it not finding what we wanted to wear. As headscarf lovers — ever since we got married — we were always on the hunt for good quality tichels (that's the yiddish word for the headscarves worn by Jewish women!). But more than that, we wanted solid colors. And more than that, GOOD colors. And we wanted them to be lightweight, but weighted enough to hold a good shape (and not fall flat like a shmata on your head!). And to actually do their job and STAY ON.
Now that we had an in with the fabric industry, and had a cumulative 17 years of married experience shopping for tichell (and talking to all our hair-covering friends and family who shared the frustration!) we decided to take matters into our own hands...well, heads :)
- 100% Cotton
- Slightly textured fabric
- Beautiful solid colors
- Perfectly weighted fabric: light, but thick enough to hold its shape
- Slightly textured feel adds interest — and function
- Fabric keeps its tie, and stays on your head
You should be able to wear your MIMU scarf plenty without having to wash it. If you need to wash it: wash delicate and hang dry.
Scarf may wrinkle with wear (we don't mind it, we even like it!) — especially where it ties. If you want to smooth out your scarf, simply put your (dry) scarf in the dryer for under a minute! :) Or you can choose to iron lightly or steam it!
