After extensively searching, but unsuccessfully finding, a fun, fashionable headband that did not slip, Rebecca Buckley, Founder of Bondi Band, received the inspiration to create her own line while vacationing in Australia.
After returning home from Australia, the experiment and development process began. She created the perfect design, incorporating elements of both function and fashion, and began hand sewing Bondi Band headbands in her hometown of Lewiston, Maine in February 2005.
Although Bondi Band began with only headbands, it has expanded to a full line of headwear, compression products and accessories in comfortable, colorful options to fit every lifestyle and personality for active women, men and children.
Bondi Band’s philosophy is to make great products at a great price and deliver superior customer service.
Along with offering functional unisex, high quality, American Made products, Bondi Band donates 10% of all profits to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts.
Thank you for being a loyal Bondi Band Customer and for helping us make a difference!
