Collégien Upcycling Project

We are so happy to introduce to you our new upcycled cotton bow hair ties.
At Collégien we are making one more step towards circular economy, by generating as little waste as possible. We have decided to give new life to our defective cotton tights by creating kids’ and women’s headbands and bow hair ties.

We are so happy to introduce to you our new upcycled accessory range!

The colours of these headbands will derive from the available stock of defective tights!
That’s why we might introduce different colours in the future. If you like these ones, hurry up and grab them before they’re gone!
