ABOUT WITHIN :
Headed Somewear’s Within Line is meant to start a discussion around mental health, the stigma it holds in our communities, and growth. Featuring 2 new designs, this collection embodies growth and battling inner struggles. It normalizes ideas of owning your mental health journey, having conversations around it, and more.
Our two designs, Flowers of Strength and Healing is Not Linear Scarves are both inspired by concepts that helped our designer on her own mental health journey (which can be read here). These designs are both minimal and clean and meant to be something you can wear with pride just for you.
FLOWERS OF STRENGTH:
The Flowers of Strength Scarf represents growth in the face of mental illnesses. Sometimes, when we are fighting our inner battles, we don’t see the fruit of our labor right away. With this visual representation of progress, we can view each “win” we have with our mental illness as a “blooming” flower or bud. Each time we don’t let our mental illness control us, we have a reminder that we are growing. When we fight back, no matter how small, we are blooming flowers of strength and growing stronger for it.
The design on this scarf features a beautiful branch on one side of the scarf, with tiny buds blooming out. It’s a very minimal print and meant to symbolize growth.
HEALING IS NOT LINEAR:
The Healing is Not Linear Scarf is meant to be a gentle reminder to go easy on ourselves. No one’s journey to healing is straightforward. There are meant to be ups and downs.
Sometimes, we also don’t understand that our journey might look very different from the person next to us- and that’s okay. We have to acknowledge our own successes and try our best to not be disheartened by the process (much easier said than done!).
This scarf is meant to serve as a small reminder throughout the day and meant to be for us alone. We’ve kept the words on this scarf on one corner of the scarf. The idea behind this minimal design is for ladies who don’t necessarily want to announce their mental health journey to the world and just want it to be for themselves. The words can be tucked away like a mantra for yourself, or displayed as a conversation piece. We’ve left that part completely up to you.
In this collection, we’ve also set aside a few scarves that will be just plains. In case you prefer to wear solids, we’ve made sure to accommodate a little something for you also.
These colors were specifically picked due to the fact that they are very calming and cooling, meant to invoke peace and tranquility.
