WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MATERIALS?
We use the highest care to source high quality, ethical, and sustainable textiles for our pieces. This means we are partial to upcycled vintage, recycled, organic, deadstock, and locally sourced textiles. Nearly 20% of global waste is produced by the fashion industry; at RAT BOI our goal is to minimize waste by up-cycling materials and producing quality products aka treasures that will stand the test of time.
WAIT…BUT ARE YOUR ITEMS REALLY MADE IN THE US?
The fashion industry is particularly harmful to the environment and consumerist culture engenders hidden costs in cheap garments such as unfair labor prices, unfit working conditions, and a gross misuse of energy and resources. YUCK! That’s why we made the decision to make all our scrunchies & ethical apparel items here in California. We understand this means higher costs for sourcing materials and sustainable production practices, but that little extra saves the ugly hidden costs associated with most fast fashion companies. At RAT BOI we try our very best to stay transparent about our sourcing and production. Every purchase at RAT BOI is a vote to support small business, fair labor, ethically sourced materials, and a healthier planet.
I HAVE “THIN” HAIR…WILL YOUR SCRUNCHIES WORK FOR ME?
Everyone has different hair which is why we have designed scrunchies that fit all textures, thickness, and styles. Our scrunchies feature a super stretch elastic that can be wrapped around your hair three times and are encased in a luxurious textile which prevents damage to your hair and gently secures all day. We also offer our baby fine style which features a slightly smaller elastic and casing designed to secure pigtails, braids, kids hair, or adults with baby fine hair!
