Since I have been posting many pictures of my scarves / hijab collection on my social networks, I received allot of questions as to how I store and organised them .I have been wearing scarves since a long time , so much that I cant even remember . Over a period of time they have collected – in other terms major hording. Scarves can last for years only if you take good care of them in terms of storage and usage .
In regards of Usage one thing has made allot of difference – No snag Hijab Pin , or safety pins (without the loop at the end) . These pins prevent your scarves threads to snag and break causing the scarf look haggard .
I have some tips and tricks to help store your scarves/ hijabs . Everyone that I knew stored their scarves in huge plastic containers . But the problem I faced is that I wouldn’t end up using them . They would be put away under my bed , tucked away from my eyes . This method that I use is more practical , as I end up using them more often .
I hang my scarves in my shelf away from the dust . I divide them according to their material and colour. I use three different types of clothes hangers to hang my scarf.
Why dint I ever think of this before !! Seriously is life changing . I had one of these spare tie hangers and now they have become a hijab hanger . They save so much space in my shelf and the scarves are easily accessible .They might look overwhelming but I have colour coordinated it to my preference . One side has all my synthetic square hijabs and other my neutrals . It easy to remove one scarf without destroying the other .Also these hangers are made to hold allot of ties , hence they are more sturdier when compared to normal hangers .
This is the other most common way for storing scarves. But keep in mind you cant store as many hijabs as you can in the above tie holder . I use this to store my jersey scarves which I don’t wear much often since it summer . Another way I use them is for my Pashmina hijabs which are two heavy and thick to hang in the tie holder .
Sometimes when I buy New hijabs and I have no time to organize it ,this is how I hang them in my shelf till it finds a color coordinated home .I use to store my expensive embroidery scarves too like this.
This was something I saw in Mother care where they displayed baby blankets and burp clothes and Viola it clicked in my brain and it made perfect sense to make this a scarf hanger . I use this to store my synthetic scarves and other lightweight .
They aren’t made with the hard plastic so you can only store light materials . None the less I have one of this always hanging behind my door , where I place my scarves that I’m planning to wear for the week or so .
Trust me these don’t take up much space in your shelf . Also because they are hanging , they don’t crease which is a plus for me . Did I forget to say its cheap . Hope you liked it , and if you have any tips kindly comment below , I would love to know.
