Hi my name is Stephanie and I run Studio Aether. I make high quality handmade hair accessories and turban hats. I am a one woman business. All of the products you see are designed, handmade, photographed and shipped out by me.
I have a love for fashion and textiles and have been sewing for over 20 years. I started making headbands to keep my dreadlocks under control and out of my face at gym and yoga classes, but I also love to wear them to stay cozy and warm on hikes outdoors.
I couldn’t find any wide enough to keep my hair out of my face, or any comfortable enough to be worn all day without getting a headache. Most shop bought products were too narrow, tight and uncomfortable on my head for me to wear for more than a couple of hours at a time.
I decided to start Studio Aether as a way to combine my love for sourcing beautiful quality fabrics and sewing. Now I am able to share my comfortable headbands and hair accessories with you too.
All of my fabrics are sourced in the UK as I love to support other local and small businesses. Many of the fabrics I use are remnants (material that may have otherwise have gone to waste) This is good for the environment, but it means my stock is often only available in small quantities so can sell out quickly. I may not always be able to be able to re stock some products, but it does mean there will be lots of new designs added regularly.
I am environmentally conscious and use minimal packaging. All of my items are shipped in Kraft paper mailing envelopes that can be reused and then recycled.
