Check out this inspiring story from Rae of “Head Wraps by Rae”. She will be attending the 2016 Holiday Market to showcase her comfortable and stylish head wraps made with love for newborns through adults, plus more. Don’t forget to check out her car seat safe ponchos for your most precious ones!
Where are you based?
I’m based out of my home in Archbald. I’m a stay at home Mom of two and basically run my business out of my dining room… which I can’t complain about because I get to be with my kids all day AND be my own boss.
Tell us a little about your products.
I started out with making Head Wraps and Pacifier Clips. Over the last year I have expanded into making Bibdanas, Rompers, Dresses, car seat safe Ponchos, and Fitness Headbands. The head wraps fit newborns up to adults and apparel is geared more towards babies and toddlers. The inspiration for my apparel comes from fashion in the 1940’s up into the 1970’s… so I’m making something vintage looking but also trendy.
What inspired you to start Head Wraps by Rae?
My daughter!!!! Both of my kids have BIG heads!! All of the headbands I would buy her would be really tight and leave indentations around her head and that concerned me because I thought it was hurting her. So I started making these head wraps because they are fully adjustable so they won’t squeeze her head and they look super cute!! Once I posted a picture of her in one on Facebook I got a ton of comments from people asking if I can make them for their kids… and that’s how it started!
What exactly is a head wrap?
Think of Rosy the Riveter… ya know the thing she has wrapped around her head?? That’s a Head Wrap!!! It’s a piece of fabric that is 100% non-stretch cotton that is fully adjustable so you can tie it to specifically fit your head. I make them in an array of colors and patterns to add some flair to any outfit. They come in a Skinny Wrap, which is a two inch width, and a Fat Wrap, which is a three inch width. Sizes are Newborn-12 month and 12 month-Adult.
Do you sell more than head wraps?
YES!!! I’ve added Pacifier Clips, Rompers, Summer Dresses, Bell Sleeve Dresses, Bibdanas… a hybrid of a bib and a bandana and it’s wayyyy cooler than your average bib, Fitness Headbands, and my newest addition is the car seat safe Poncho.
Do you have an absolute favorite product (or best seller)?
Right now it’s definitely the car seat safe Ponchos. I launched these 2 weeks ago and have had a tremendous turnout! It definitely puts the safety of your child first because it lifts up so you can secure them safely into a car seat. It’s made from fleece so it also keeps them super warm while transporting them to and from the car. I love it because it’s so soft and cozy and looks super cool on. Coming in close for best sellers would be the Fitness Headbands… I’ve picked up a huge following with the CrossFit community.
