How do I tie my scarf?
Each scarf comes with a printed ‘how to turban’ guide which instructs you how to tie my fave style that I wore loads when I lost my hair.
It will take a little bit of practice to master your scarf styling skills so grab a mirror and have fun trying out the different styles.
We’d love to see you scarf pics by tagging them @braveryco on instagram!
Where are these badass hats and scarves made?
I’m proud to say that we’ve made loads of decisions that have been driven by the desire to create a more sustainable, ethical and environmentally responsible business. It’s been such an incredible learning curve and we're continually changing and shifting to be better. In no way am I claiming to be perfect so if you have any suggestions on things we can do better, I'm all ears.
Our designer scarves are produced in the silk capital of Hangzhou in China - an area famous for the best quality silk fabric. I've been working with small company headed by two female founders - Miya and Lillian, for 4 years now. The silk manufacturing factory is small and employs approximately 35 people. As we only hire experienced silk printers, each employee is paid a higher than average wage. I’ve also had a third party inspect the working conditions and make sure they are all up to scratch but hope to visit China in the near future to properly meet the team.
We’ve chosen to use digital printing to produce our Designer scarf range as it allows us the flexibility to have smaller runs of production and therefore no waste. Digital printing also reduces water waste because the fabric doesn’t need as many wash/rinse cycles, and there are no screens or colorant baths that require cleaning.
Each batch of scarves takes 5-6 weeks to be completed. We don't rush production as we want to create high quality scarves that have been made with love.
Selecting the right material to print our Designer Range took a lot of researching but we landed on Silk Modal as it’s both soft of the head and made from natural fibres which is completely biodegradable at the end of its life.
Our Twist hats are made in Melbourne by the incredible Roula of Cannon Fashion. She is a one-woman show with years of experience. We make small batches to avoid any waste.
The twist hats were designed by our founder, Emily and the pattern has been patented so it is unique to Bravery Co.
Who designed my scarf?
Each designer scarf is made in collaboration with a clever creative. You can read about each artist on product page on our website.
Can I design a scarf?
Each year we have a scarf art competition. The winners create our next range of scarves. This happens in August of each year so subscribe to our mailing list to be the first to know. You can also check out the past entries on instagram by searching #braveryscarfcomp2021
Why did you make these scarves?
I lost my hair and couldn’t find any cool scarves that were the right shape, size or fabric.

What’s your return policy?
We want all of our customers to be as happy with our products as we are, so we ask that you make sure you’re completely stoked on your choice before purchasing. Once the designer scarves are unfolded, it’s not possible to fold them in the condition you would expect to receive it. So due to hygiene and resell reasons, we do not accept refunds or exchange due to change of mind.

For all other reasons, we will only accept if the product has been unfolded and unworn. Postage to be covered by the buyer.
Please contact us on email@example.com for all return concerns or questions within seven days of receiving your package.
How do I clean my designer scarf?
Your designer scarf is made out of a very soft silk modal blend. It is quite delicate and therefore needs you to be delicate when caring for it.
If your scarf has been stained or is quite grubby, we would suggest dry cleaning. If it requires a light clean, you can give it a very gentle hand wash using a mild delicate-friendly liquid soap using cool water. Silk doesn’t love being submerged in water for too long so 5 minutes is enough. Then dry flat.
In between wears, I would suggest hanging the scarf or draping it over a chair. This will allow it to air out and help the wrinkles unravel. You can also give it an iron on low heat.
Where do you donate the money for cancer research?
We donate $2 from every scarf to the Peter MacCallum Cancer centre in Melbourne.
Are the scarves stocked in any shops?
Please contact the stockists individually for a list of available scarves and hats.
