Celebrate the enduring appeal of art and rebellion
This bandana references 60s art, (specifically Jasper Johns' target paintings) and also punk aesthetics. The iron black and kashish gray design features a center of black circles within circles like an archery target or dart board. These are surrounded by a border of black racing flag checks, all on a calm kashish gray ground. The design ripples with energy and graphic impact. Lovely, fine hand-rolled hem.
These bandanas tell stories of handmade crafts in Rajasthani art and culture. Natural dyeing is exactly what it says. The colors and designs on this bandana are created from printed color consisting solely of raw iron ore that soaks in water. The grey color comes from what the craftspeople call “black water”. Light colors are soaked for a short time. Iron black soaks for days to create rich, deep black.
