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 Katazome pattern is inspired by traditional Katazome papercut prints. A stencil is meticulously cut from paper, and a paste is applied through it, for fabric to be resist dyed. These papercut patterns are incredibly unique works of art, and we strive to share them through memorable products.
