Whilst last year’s upheaval and uncertainty has left us bruised and withdrawn, at Céline Martine we believe in the learning and growth that springs from challenging times.
We are committed to playing our part to power optimism and positive change. We’ll do this by taking risks, having uncomfortable conversations, making mistakes and learning from them.
We will continue to champion Women’s Rights and call out misogynic structures and behaviours as we see them.
We believe in strong and confident women, free of judgment and free to pursue their true calling.
We will do our bit to care for the planet by using vintage, recycled fabrics and less plastics whenever we can.
And we’ll do this, step by step, with deep breaths, nurturing and being nurtured by all the wonderful women that make Celine Martine possible.
Our Social Impact
Céline Martine is built on an empowerment model.
We partner with and employ local women to sew our turbans and headbands.
At Céline Martine we want women to be able to focus on what is important to them. Let women be talented, brave, beautiful or all three.
Finally we help empower others by donating $2 per item sold to local organisations supporting Domestic Violence survivors.
Born in Paris. Crafted in Melbourne.
Céline Martine founder, Marion Lecesne's passion for fabrics, colours, and patterns comes from her "grandmères” Céline and Martine.
Since little, she has played with scarfs and headbands, finding ultimate solutions to create time-saving, comfortable and statement pieces.
"I stopped wearing headbands in the 80ies, when the plastic just hurt my head so much!"
In 2017, we crafted our first turban headband with wire, and soon expanded the range with exclusive scarf bow versions.
All our pieces are made in Melbourne, Australia
We pride ourselves in using vintage and up-cycled fabrics when possible, and continue to evolve headwear styles to bring the best quality possible.
The materials used are high quality and beautifully made. I’ll be buying more of these for sure.
I wear these headbands everyday! The shipping was incredibly fast, Marion included a nice personalized note and followed up to make sure I received and that everything was ok. Great shop, great owner and great headbands!
Absolutely delighted with this gorgeous headband. Thank you!!!!
I’d give this more stars if I could. I just love Celine Martine headbands. It’s a stylish and simple design. This scarf was just too slippery to wear and I wasn’t getting any use out of it. But just like magic Celine has made it into something that I can wear everyday with almost everything.
The headband is so pretty and comfortable too. I want to get more in other colours and wear them everyday.
I absolutely love this piece so well made and already thinking about which one to add to my collection next!
Celine Martine acknowledges the Boonwurrung / Boonerwrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nations, the traditional Custodians of the land on which our pieces are made, and First Peoples language groups and communities across Victoria and Australia.
We are working to improve how we support FIrst People’s living cultures and histories. Suggestions welcome.
