We designed our scrunchies to be good for your hair, your community and your environment.


“Maya” means “love”

Kitimaya was started in Rochester, NY by five Nepali sewists

These scrunchies are made in a dignified, flexible, and supportive community workplace by refugees who live in Rochester, NY.
