Bonnets & Durags began as a podcast in 2017. The creator, via Simone, coined 'Bonnets & Durags: A Pillow Talk Podcast' to be a safe space for millennials of color to have open and intimate conversations. The brand has also evolved into an event series and clothing line since its inception and will continue to expand passed the airwaves. 


It's important for black and brown folks to feel seen and heard. That's why Bonnets & Durags works to make sure that these folks feel comfortable revealing their most authentic selves with the world. There is so much liberation and vulnerability that comes with being in your bonnet or your durag. Let's continue to embrace those moments and do it big for ourselves and for the culture.
