In December 2014, Earth Crowns was born. It was in a snowy wintry night Izayaa and her husband discussed head-wrapping. The conversation focused on how to provide women interested in head-wrapping or already doing so, the opportunity to look into Izayaa's living culture of head-wrapping. After much thought, the idea of a page on Facebook, as well as written pieces on my blog, where Izayaa sought to teach and inspire women into the culture and art of head-wrapping, was agreed upon. "Earth Crowns: The Art and Culture of HeadWrapping" was born that night.
Earth Crowns focuses on teaching the origins and history of head-wrapping through the varying cultures of women who head-wrap around the world. In addition, Earth Crowns helps women to find their Self-Styled Wisdom, their own unique look, through the art of head-wrapping. Each women has a unique beauty and by finding her sense of style through head-wrapping, she is able to enhance her divine feminine with the creation of each of her wraps/crowns.
Izayaa uses the term Crown because women's royal title is Queen, and as such we shall dress and carry ourselves. Prudence, modesty and femininity are the predominant markers of this title, and so when women cover their heads they are indeed wearing their own crowns.
Earth Crowns assists women with the following services:
