Each bandana is printed, cut, and sewn by hand.

Would we be dedicating an entire article to them on this website if they weren’t? Traditionally, bandanas were worn around the neck or the head for protection but over time they have become a go-to fashion accessory. They work for any season and for a variety of outfits.
Besides the endless options of fabrics, prints, and sizes this is where you can definitely put your own spin on wearing a bandana. The most standard way to wear one is around your neck. This works for both casual and slightly dressier looks. The two main options are to take a smaller one, twist it, place it around your neck, and tie a knot at the front. Or, if you prefer a larger bandana, you can wear it around your neck like a scarf. Just be aware of your color palette – bold hues work best with neutral clothes and vice versa.
If you want to try a bolder, edgier look, try tying your bandana around your head. Start by laying the bandana flat and then folding it lengthways several times into a long rectangle, tucking in any loose corners and tying it around your head. This tends to pair better with a casual streetwear or rock-n-roll look but part of the fun of fashion is experimenting.
One of my favorite ways to wear that often gets overlooked is around the wrist. Whether you choose one wrist or two this look will give an extra boost of attitude without being overbearing. Also, this look tends to work best when the bandana is a little messy, pairing perfectly with your favorite casual outfit.
Last but not least, and perhaps the easiest way to begin your bandana adventure is to wear it from the waist. You can tuck it into a pocket, your belt, waistband, or tie it to a belt loop for an easier, more comfortable way to add color without overdoing it. No matter how you decide to style your bandana, as long as you are confident in what you are wearing, they add instant flair to even the most basic of looks.
