About House of Tafari
For Designer and CEO Imani McFarlane, headwraps are more than a piece of fabric. They are her right. Her culture. The future. Since 2006, Ankara, Silk Dupioni and Woodin have been the medium through which they tell their story. Featuring ready-to-wear + haute couture headwraps, Ankara hair accessories, and their Signature Wrap Dresses, each Tafari Wraps design is stitched with love and intention. Handmade in their Boston Seaport/Fort Point Studio, their products and services both uplift the spirit, and restore dignity. Inspired by the vibrancy of the Caribbean, landscape of Africa, and International Couture; Tafari Wraps is versatile in style and expression. Drawing on African spirituality and Rastalivity, Imani designs and creates headwraps that are not only fashionable in their artistry, but healing in function. For the young woman looking to reconnect with tradition, to the hair-loss thriver looking for restoration; their headwraps are healing.
