DB-014 Bandanna "ARGYLE"

100% Cotton

This image is for illustrative purposes only, so the color has not been adjusted. Please note that the actual product may differ from the image.

We have incorporated the pattern of an argyle gabardine jacket that was still around from the 1950s into a bandana.

The argyle pattern was very popular in the 1950s.

Originally a representative British knitting pattern, it is a time-honoured pattern that has been used on sweaters, socks and other items.

In America, the knitted pattern became a huge hit as a print, and was used on jackets, shirts and other items.

This time, we tried using that pattern on a bandana, an item with high advertising effectiveness.

Bandanas were originally made to wipe away sweat and protect from dust...but they have also been used as advertising media because of their large, easy-to-handle square shape.

They are printed with workwear brand logos and tourist destination names, and have also been used in politicians' advertisements and to demonstrate national pride.

The design features argyle print on all four sides with finely detailed argyle patterned inside.

The only difference from the vintage version is the FAST COLOR part. This part also includes the eyes of all things and ALL COTTON. Think of it as imitating the elephant mark that is often seen on vintage bandanas.

The material is of course 100% cotton sheeting.

The bandana measures 23 inches (58.5 cm) by 22 inches (53.3 cm). This is the most common size for vintage items, and I think it's the best size for cutting cotton sheeting fabric into a bandana.

The traditional dyeing method is discharge dyeing after base dyeing, but this dyeing method is almost impossible in Japan today (due to pollution issues), so we use a special technique called "tweezers matching dyeing" to make the fabric look the same.

Therefore, just like the originals, the dye looks the same whether you look at it from the front or the back.

All four edges are discharge dyed ecru and single-needle sewn, aiming for a texture that looks as if the dye has faded with use.

These bandanas were designed by bandana collectors, so you can use them as thoroughly as you would a real one and create the next generation of vintage bandanas.
