Medical Zebra - EDS Awareness Headband

Have you heard of Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS)?

Red Dust hadn’t either, until our last photoshoot when we discovered our wonderful model Emily, the mother of two small daughters, had been diagnosed with this rare syndrome.

The Elhers-Danlos society uses the Zebra as its logo because the syndrome is unexpected. When you hear hoofbeats behind you, you don’t expect a Zebra.

Emily was looking at our new Patterned Emu headband and very quietly said they would look great in Zebra fabric. Immediately we were on the ball, sourced the fabric, and had some sizing samples ready to test. They are now for sale with 20% of our profit going to Emily to be donated to the EDS Society for research into this rare and debilitating syndrome.

The Medical Zebra headwrap is a very close relation of the Emu Exerciser. So close, in fact, there is only one key detail that can help you tell them apart:

1. The fabric used for the patterned side of this headband is special. While both are reversible, the EDS Awareness headband is a solid colour on one side only – the other side sports the Zebra pattern used to bring awareness to EDS.

Designed, manufactured, and ships from Adelaide, Australia.

  • to help bring awareness to Ehlers-Danlos syndromes.

We made the EDS Awareness headband for variety and versatility and you can use her to keep your hair at bay for almost anything! A fringe-tamer for your next roller-skating session? Practicing headstands in the park? Strolling along the beach on a breezy day? Let your imagination run wild!

Just like the Emu Exerciser, this zebra-patterned EDS awareness sweatband means you can change up your look every workout – go for a colour block to match your outfit or reverse it to the patterned side for something different. The choice is yours my friend.

The Medical Zebra - EDS Awareness headband is super comfortable and non-slip, which means once you’ve got her placed nice and low on your forehead (she’s not designed to sit on top of your head), you won’t have to worry about her again until your workout is done. 

Reversible Helmet Friendly

We want you to have it all! Style, comfort, function, AND endurance. If you’re a bit of a tech-nerd like us, here’s what you’ll love about this headband:

Quick Drying


      • 85.5% Polyester
      • 14.5% Spandex


    • 78% Recycled Polyester
    • 22% Lycra

The Patterned Emu Exerciser loves to be washed with like-minded colours on a cool and gentle cycle. In fact, she has a strong dislike of almost anything else wash related. Once she’s nice and clean, her thing is to lay luxuriously on a flat surface until dry.

Please don’t iron her or put her in the tumble dryer… she’ll probably leave home if you do.
