Our Pledge: Slow Fashion, High Style, All You.

At Krysalis Kouture we believe that style can uplift, empower, and ease your movement through the day. We create all of our garments with the love and care you deserve when dealing with chronic illness. Our mindfully designed headscarves fill an unmet need between standard head coverings and expensive wigs. As wig alternatives, our headscarves bring you glamor, comfort, and confidence. Feel more like yourself again.

Sustainable Style

Riffing on the timeless glamor of classic film stars, our headscarves are designed to last and never go out of style. Wear them through treatments and beyond–they’re a beautiful solution to dirty hair days and rushed mornings alike. Following the principles of “slow fashion,” we build longevity into all our products. 

Each headscarf features an inner beanie made from eco-friendly, organic and natural fibers, layered beneath a custom-printed scarf for environmentally sound, long-lasting comfort and machine-washable ease.

Perfect for anyone on the go, living in grace and confidence through difficult times.

Locally and Ethically Crafted

We work with factories in New York City that produce a wide variety of luxury brand garments in addition to ours. We strongly believe that supporting local garment workers strengthens our whole community.

We have teamed up with two family-owned scarf and necktie manufacturers to create our headscarves: 

For over 30 years, Elizabeth Gillett has been working with private label clients, museums, and catalogs to create high quality, luxurious, low-impact styles. At Elizabeth Gilett, they believe “a beautiful scarf brightens the face like a great shade of lipstick.”

Jimmy Sales Neckwear Corp. has been crafting high-end fashion accessories for forty years, spanning four generations of family. Their products are carried in Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys of New York.

Design for our Community

Krysalis Kouture emerged from founder Paloma Soledad’s own cancer journey, and we are dedicated to giving back to our community.

We are honored to partner with The Breasties–the first all-inclusive nonprofit organization that creates community for survivors, previvors, thrivers, and carevivors impacted by breast and gynecologic cancers. Their mission is to empower through connection, free events, and trusted resources, and to fund research for metastatic breast cancer.

With every headscarf purchase, Krysalis Kouture will give 3% to The Breasties, helping to support our community.
