WHO CAN WEAR FANM DJANM
I am not a woman of color, can I wear a headwrap?
AH! The appropriation versus appreciation debate! Thank you for checking in on such a sensitive topic. We make headwraps for everyone. Worldwide, tying a piece of cloth around your head isn’t specific to any cultural group. However, since Fanm Djanm is black owned and presents carefully curated images around black womanhood, it is easy to think that’s our sole audience. Take into consideration the following.
In the historical context, black hair is not just hair. The policing of black hair pre-dates the Tignon Laws of 1786, which enforced knotted head coverings and banned embellishments on the heads of Black and mixed race women outside the home, and extends into the present day as it was only in 2014 the United States military included cornrows and braids within their list of acceptable hairstyles while on duty. These examples highlight hair is shrouded in personal, political, and social nuances that make people of color protective of its imagery.
Head coverings, thereby, carry in the same vein due to proximity - think du-rags, stocking caps, headwraps etc. They are just as personally, politically, and socially steeped in nuance. That being said, we would suggest researching different wrapping styles to ensure they do not hold cultural significance. For example, Nigerian women wear 'geles,' a traditional headwrap for specific + special occasions - wearing a headwrap tied in this style if not Nigerian would likely cause issues. Our tutorials page shows many ways to tie your headwrap, including styles that are not tied to any specific culture.
In sum, we welcome you to take in these considerations and engage with our products in a way that makes you comfortable. It is important to us to encourage you to wear them for bold self expression and hope you consider our many fabrics which are solid-colored or non-traditional patterns.
I am a man, can I wear a headwrap?
Short answer: yes. Fanm Djanm headwraps are made for everyone. As a black woman-owned business with a commitment to showing the beauty and elegance of black women, we understand the ideas of exclusivity surrounding the headwrap and our community but be it style, color, or gender expression — the headwrap knows no limits.
Can children wear your headwraps?
Though our headwraps can be adjusted to fit heads of all sizes, we do recommend djanmdannas as a better fit for especially small heads. DjanmDannas will help you avoid issues with slippage caused by excess fabric
