Our new fabric line, SoHo Bandana is getting ready to ship and I thought today would be a good day to take a quick look at the history of the bandana. The bandana has been around, in one form or another since Renaissance times. Originally the bandana we know today was a lowly handkerchief  used for personal hygiene. Soon enough, the handkerchief because a decorative item that morphed into the world of pocket squares and ascots. As manual workers found the handkerchief come into use for everything from cleaning equipment to keeping the sweat off one's brow, hankie's were designed and produced in larger sizes. Ranch hands and cowboy's in the Old West found these larger hankies, now called bandanas, especially useful and when Hollywood brought cowboy culture into the lives of Americans, bandanas became a mainstream fashion accessory. The bandana has been both a fashion and utilitarian item ever since! Although bandanas are worn worldwide, the classic red and blue bandanas are considered a staple of Americana. Amy has collected vintage bandanas for years and  wanted to bring this historical print into the modern world. Thus, SoHo Bandana was born. Check with your local independent fabric store about getting SoHo Bandana. AB_SoHo Canvas 24127_gre1 24129_blu1 24131_red1 24128_red1 24132_cregre1 24133_bei1 24134_blu1 24130_cre1
