♡ Our Story ♡

Kaurtino is an environmentally conscious e-commerce company that manufactures and sells luxurious handmade scrunchies made from high quality and repurposed fabrics.

Founded by University of Waterloo student, Bismun Kaur, Kaurtino strives to be “The Best Care For Your Hair.” Every scrunchie is sewn in Toronto by Kaurtino, a mother & daughter team with 52+ years of combined sewing experience! The company name derives from Bismun's last name, the Punjabi word “Kaur” meaning princess, and “tino” meaning small, therefore translating into “small items for a princess.”

To date, Kaurtino has fulfilled 1000+ orders, sold over 2500+ scrunchies, and donated to social causes such as the YMCA Women’s Shelter and the Sick Kids Hospital. Prior to starting her business, Bismun was passionate about hair care. Being a science student, she takes good care of her hair, growing it to over 45 inches long! Part of her hair care is scrunchies. Traditional hair ties are made from rough elastics causing tension, breakage and split ends. Kaurtino scrunchies reduce hair breakage as the fabric is so smooth that there is virtually no friction. Scrunchies allow the hair to be tension-free, encourage hair hydration, and promote silky smooth hair!

Because my mom and I sew every scrunchie ourselves, we can customize scrunchies to any fabric, colour & design. We have made custom scrunchies for events such as birthdays, engagements, and weddings. Email us for your special events & inquiries!
