The Holiday Season is upon us and, as predicted, we’re still wearing face masks to keep ourselves and others safe from the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Masks are now a part of everyday life, so it makes sense that consumer mask design continuously evolves to create products that are more comfortable, effective, and — very important — stylish. Previously here on The ‘Gig, we reviewed a line of fashion and lifestyle accessories from Pomchies, a certified woman-owned company with an interesting back-story.

Heather Logan Clark created Pomchies in 2002 out of a desire to utilize swimsuit material remnants from her previous swimwear company. All Pomchies products are created using the highest quality swimwear fabric that is durable, waterproof, washable, reasonably priced and also eco-friendly. Earlier in 2020, Pomchies launched its Pom Mask line in quick response to the need for comfortable, breathable facial masks at the onset of Covid-19, and the company is now celebrating the sale of two million masks in just seven months!

Back to School: three little words that stir anxiety in the young and the young-at-heart. Nobody wants summer to end, but while you can’t stop time, you can keep your summer vibe alive by adding Pomchies accessories to your back-to-school shopping list. Established in 2002, Pomchies is a line of fun fashion, home and lifestyle accessories with amazingly practical uses.

The company name Pomchie was originally coined to describe a soft ‘ouchless’ ponytail holder — part scrunchie, part pom pom — which was its debut product. Pomchies accessories were born from a quest for sustainability, back when Pomchies owner Heather Logan was selling children’s sun protective swimwear and the Australia-based factory was in search of a way to use the scraps of left-over fabric. While Pomchies now buys its fabric by the container load, the adventurous spirit that launched this fun, carefree accessory line still informs its creative aesthetic. All Pomchie products are soft and waterproof, made from washable Oeko Tex approved swimwear fabric.

I recently received a surprise box of assorted Pomchies items to try, some of which – such as ubiquitous fashion hair accessory known as the scrunchie – I’ve already been using for years, and others that I never knew I needed until they landed on my doorstep. Let’s take a look!

Scrunchie Threesome

I have very long hair that loves to fly around in the breeze, so to keep it out of my face, I tie it back with a scrunchie practically on a daily basis. The Pomchies Hair Scrunch comes as a single piece, or a coordinated 3-pack, and there literally hundreds of color combinations, so you can own one to match every outfit.
