Bandanas are the ultimate Every Day Carry essential! They're like the Swiss Army knife of accessories, covering everything from chivalry to survival, hygiene to medical applications, and of course, let's not forget the most important one... style! Seriously, these things have more uses than you can imagine. It's like the old saying goes, it's better to have one (bandana) and not need it than to need one and not have it. They're so lightweight and compact that they fit perfectly into your EDC. Don’t believe me?…Just do a quick internet search for "bandana uses" and prepare to go down the rabbits hole! You'll soon be wondering why you haven't been carrying one already!
But hold on, let’s not stop there! We decided our bandanas needed a little upgrade too. Like our custom handkerchiefs, De Luxe Standard’s bandanas also have a simple but functional buttonhole. Each buttonhole is strategically located in a corner within the artwork. Making it as discrete as possible. Although this feature may have other applications its primary use is that of a napkin bib! Yeah, you read that right. Just attach the button opening to your shirt collar button, and voila! Instant built-in bib. It's like we've revolutionized the world of messy eaters with our fashionable bandanas. LOL!
Now, let's talk about the artwork for this bandana we call the "Cowboy." It has a clean symmetrical design with a hints of Country style... such as the stitching accent found on a pair cowboy boots, or the big stars found in the country’s night sky, even the border is a rope pattern bringing it all together. Additionally, we didn’t name it the “Cowboy” just because of its design... it’s also the name of a cocktail. We like to name our hanks after cocktails and figured we’d keep the tradition with our bandanas too. Interesting coincidence... there are many variations for the “Cowboy” cocktail, as there are uses for bandanas.
Now, let's get technical for a second. The design was screen printed by hand with a water based discharge ink. Discharge inks remove the material’s dye instead of printing inks on top of it. Similar to bleaching, the discharging agent brings the material back to its natural color, except it doesn’t damage the fibers. The results are an extremely soft print. The artwork is only screen printed onto one side. Therefore, the artwork will appear more vibrant on one side than the other. On occasion, the discharge ink will permeate completely through giving it a mirror image on the opposite side but for the vast majority, it’s a rustic looking reflection, making each bandana unique.
We're thrilled to add these amazing bandanas to our Fine Goods collection, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Cheers to bandanas and all their awesome uses!
Just as we are all unique, so are our bandanas. Due to individual material characteristics and the nature of hand crafting there may be some variations from pictured item. Consider this your Bandanas identity. Display and use it with pride.
