We are delighted to team up with Headbands of Hope to create designs for an amazing cause. Headbands of Hope are given to children with cancer in hospitals across the US because, as Jess Ekstrom, founder of Headbands of Hope believes, fashion can be a great vehicle for positive self-identity.
In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, we hope this month’s theme, “dreamers,” will inspire designs of celestial and sky imagery and/or future aspirations, such as travel, careers, and people to one day meet. Top 5 winners will have their designs licensed for an exclusive Spoonflower x Headbands of Hope collection.
