We believe that fashion should be hands-on. Replacing the impersonal nature of factory production, we infuse care, respect and humanity into every piece of fabric we sew. In our commitment to slow fashion and our local economy, our creations remain eco-conscious and handmade in Canada.

OUR SLOW FASHION VISION

Through our development process, we can closely monitor quality standards within the cozy quarters of our atelier. Locally made and hands-on, we take pride in fostering an ethical and creative working space for our talented team of sewers, supporting them and their families through our efforts in slow fashion.

 

Far beyond your standard scrunchie or hair tie, our designs are handcrafted with precision and care in support of a larger vision for a sustainable future. A future nurtured through honest practices, ethical job creation with fair wages, and of course, green fabrics.

NOT ALL ELASTICS ARE CREATED EQUAL…

Think all elastics are the same? Not even close. The result of years of testing, our proprietary elastics have been engineered to provide all-day hold, comfort and staying power, keeping the need for adjusting to a minimum. Some of our most commonly received 'Thank you' messages from clients are those mentioning how they often reach the end of their day only to realize they hadn't worried about their hair or felt the need to adjust their Chelsea King hair tie.  

 

Made using a natural cotton flat braid, our unique elastic provides ideal elongation and recovery to prevent hair breakage and reduce kinking. This innovative elastic is also heat treated and chlorine-resistant so it stays intact during workouts and swims – and even through the washer and dryer.

I love it when I hear someone say ‘all hair ties and scrunchies are the same’ because it opens the door to opportunity for us to prove the opposite. I don’t believe hair accessories are all created equal and have made it our company mission to prove that with every piece we make.

By rescuing fabric remnants or repurposing slightly imperfect garments, we transform these pieces into adorable hair ties and scrunchies. This way, each handmade hair accessory is truly one-of-a-kind.

WE PUT VALUE BEFORE COST

Although more expensive for us, we take enormous pride in our efforts to continue our commitment to crafting our products locally, ethically and sustainably.

 

We don't believe in fast and cheap. Nor do we sacrifice quality to cut expense. Yet, through this commitment comes the costly journey of being a slow fashion brand. As we value transparency and honest practices, we care about sharing the roadmap of how our efforts toward a sustainable production system works.

 

The first step: we work hard to source the best materials, with a focus on eco-friendly and sustainable fibers. Following that, the fabric is transformed into Chelsea King products by our talented sewers in the small and tranquil environment of our local ateliers. Next, there’s the creative process, whereby our sewers use delicate techniques to create the finished version. As our hair ties are crafted by hand, no one stitch is ever exactly identical because we’re not a factory. Rather, we’re a creative space that employs people, who to us, are like family.

HANDCRAFTED LOCALLY IN CANADA

When it comes to sourcing textiles, most businesses have two options: buy cheaply from overseas or go the local route.

 

While many of our textiles have their origins in Europe, we our supplied through our Canadian based textile partners. Following our seasonal and capsule fabric selections our hair accessories are sewn here in Canada by our team of gifted artisans. This way, we create employment opportunities for our local tailors and seamstresses, which help sustain our local economy. Plus, we take an enormous amount of pride in this handmade pathway. With every stitch and seam, our sewers imbue a special degree of patience and artistry into our creations. We love that each individual Chelsea King hair accessory is crafted on a foundation of passion and honesty.

 

By operating locally, we can work as a team to oversee every detail, from the graceful stitching to the meticulous finishes— all of the thoughtful little details for which Chelsea King is known.
