a collection of handmade eco-friendly scrunchies made using upcycled materials

Upcycled Scrunchies


Tie back your hair with care. Handmade by our very own Núria from Team ABP 😊. Two kinds of materials are used to make the ‘stretch’ in these scrunchies, we have a choice of new elastic made from organic cotton and natural rubber, or repurposed bobbles which have been given a new lease of life. All of the fabrics and thread used to make these scrunchies have been upcycled/repurposed from material that would otherwise have gone to waste, no new plastic has been used to make these scrunchies.


Choose from:

- Black Bandana (made with new elastic) Organic cotton and natural rubber elastic, covered with upcycled viscose fabric and Tencel thread (possibly not suitable for those with a latex allergy).


- Colourful (choose between either new elastic or an upcycled bobble) covered with upcycled cotton fabric and Tencel thread. 


- Black and White Striped (made with new elastic) Organic cotton and natural rubber elastic, covered with upcycled viscose fabric and Tencel thread (possibly not suitable for those with a latex allergy).


- Mustard (made using an upcycled bobble) covered with upcycled poly-cotton fabric and polyester thread.


- Floral (made using an upcycled bobble) covered with upcycled cotton fabric and organic cotton thread.  


With the scrunchies made using new organic cotton and natural rubber elastic, you’ve got a biodegradable and much more environmentally friendly material to tie your hair back with. In the case of the scrunchies made from ‘found’ bobbles, we are removing a waste product from the environment and repurposing it into something new, pretty and useful.

  • Plastic bobbles which get lost and left lying around to end their life as litter, and scrunchies made from not so nice new materials (plastic-based fabrics like polyester or nylon) using non-biodegradable synthetic rubber to add the stretch. Just more unnecessary plastic, which all too often goes to waste.
