The classic American bandana first popularized by Hollywood cowboys was originally influenced by Indian textiles, patterns, and dyeing methods. Our printed patterns are designed to look like American-style bandanas, but are made up of Japanese symbols and patterns.
The Ainu are an indigenous people of Japan. Resourceful and spiritual, they decorate their garments with intricate embroidery and maze-like designs meant to trap evil spirits.
