Beautifully Wrapped is an international, interfaith organization that brings together people of all cultures and ethnicities to showcase the art form of headwrapping as a way to promote beauty, spiritual identity and holistic health and healing. They endeavor to inspire, enlighten, and empower women of all walks of life through education, publications, media, and fashion.

Headwrapping is an expression of human spirit that transcends time, religious differences, and space. The act of wrapping is like the building of courage, strength, spirituality, and love all at once. With each fold, tuck or pull of the cloth, one becomes enveloped in a sense of higher purpose. We hope you are inspired to learn more about the “person under the wrap.”  (Taken from Beautifully Wrapped & The Headwrap Expo,  https://www.facebook.com/Headwraps)
