SPRING TIME
Blue Collection x African Queens 
This is the first collection for the new rebrand of Sahara Head Wraps. We wanted to start with a focus of the color BLUE. Blue calls to mind feelings of Calmness or Serenity. It is often associated with feelings of peacefulness, tranquility, and security. With this relaunch we wanted to represent living in your true power and being relaxed while you do it. This made us think of famous African Queens.
