The Wrap Life is a dynamic young Brooklyn-based company churning out vibrant headwraps, handmade jewelry and carefully curated incense bundles.

Founder Nnenna Stella decided to launch the company after her online search for headwraps proved futile.

"I Googled for three days and I was so upset," the African-American entrepreneur told Madam Noire. "I was like, 'Really? Nobody’s selling head wraps?' I imagined that there were other women who wanted to start wearing them, as well, and they couldn’t find fabrics and prints that they liked, so I decided to start."

Photographed by Brooklyn-based TunnelVision artist Dex R. Jones, The Wrap Life's most recent lookbook demonstrates the countless styling options made possible with their multicolored fabrics, many of which are handprinted. But what really stands out in the idyllic shoot is the seamless mixing of traditional headwraps with cut-off denim, midi dresses, provocative swimsuits and Timberland boots.

"The Wrap Life is about a lifestyle, so I want to show them my lifestyle and be as honest as possible," Nnenna told Madam Noire.
