Traveling the World Vicariously through our Headbands


The best part of building this business are the customers we meet along the way. 

Way back in 2012 we launched KOOSHOO to the public at a trade show in Vancouver. It was an incredibly exciting weekend for us. We'd worked for so long creating our products and our branding and that was the big unveil. 

While a lot of great things happened that opening weekend, looking back today I'd say the highlight was meeting a globetrotting couple named Kelly and James.

We haven't met them in person since but over the past 4.5 years we feel like we've gotten to know them as dear friends, accompanying them on their worldwide adventures to far off tattoo parlours, Icelandic volcanoes and music festivals. 

Kelly and James bought their first KOOSHOO headbands that opening weekend, falling in love with the versatility we build into the headbands. In the years since, those headbands, along with a few others, have traveled the world with Kelly and James and we've been fortunate enough to be tagged along for the ride. 

One of our favorite trips was Iceland where our versatile headbands were truly put to the test.
Here for you today is that journey (plus a few extras) via the oh-so-awesome Instagram feed of James.

Every time we look back at these photos they make us smile from ear to ear. As avid travellers ourselves, this is exactly what we hope for when we design our products.

We know how important versatility is when traveling - even in the simplest product - and that's why we apply this space-saving design philosophy to every product we make. Whether it's a headband as a face mask, a shawl that becomes more than a dozen outfits or Kids Pants that grow with your child, this is the stuff that truly excites us.

"The best hair tie I've ever used. The fact that it adheres to my standards of a planet friendly product is a bonus!"

"You guys, these scrunchies are ridiculous. I have THICK hair and I'm so pumped that not only can I wrap it around my hair twice, but it stays in without slowly falling out."

"I think the headband is my favourite one I have ever worn to be honest!!"
