SELECT AND PURCHASE A BANDANA AT OUR BANDANA STORE
To select and buy a bandanna that perfectly fits your style, there are several factors to consider:
THE COLOR OF THE BANDANA
The color of the bandanna (red, blue, black…) is a crucial criterion to consider while choosing and buying one.
Your preference and style determine the choice of color. Having a stock of African pattern bandanas in different colors is ideal for versatility.
You can choose from a range of colors such as
- red bandana color for passion
- blue bandanna color for freedom
- white bandana color for peace
- black bandanna color for luxury
- yellow bandana color for happiness
- pink bandanna color for femininity
- green bandana color for luck
- orange bandanna color for energy.
THE PRINT OF THE BANDANA
The pattern of your bandanna is the second criterion to consider. Our traditional African Kemetic print is the most original, but you can also opt for even more unique designs such as a tropical floral satin bandanna shiny look or a medicinal floral large bandanna scarves for a headwrap or turban sophisticated Bohemian look.
THE SIZE OF THE BANDANA
One more factor to consider when choosing a bandanna is its size. The standard size is 21 inches (54x54cm), suitable for adults and for classic uses like around the head or neck.
Larger sizes 35 inches (90x90cm) can be used for a variety of purposes. Check out our collection of larger vegan silk bandanna scarves.
THE MATERIAL/FABRIC OF THE BANDANA
The texture of your bandanna is the final criterion to consider, and there are different materials to choose from, including :
Each has its own pros and cons, such as the lightweight and easy maintenance of polyester, or the warmth and softness of cotton or silk. Ultimately, the choice will depend on your specific needs and preferences.
After selecting your bandanna, the next question is how to wear and tie it in the desired style.
There are numerous ways to wear a bandana that can reflect your personality and desired look, but three methods stand out the most and are commonly used:
THE BANDANA HEADBAND
One of the most popular ways to wear a bandana is on the head. You can tie it around your head, whether you have loose or tied-up hair.
To achieve this style, fold the bandana to the desired width and place it on your forehead. Then, tie both ends at the back of your head using one or two knots.
Now, you're all set to turn heads with your elegant, unique, and stylish look.
THE BANDANA AROUND YOUR NECK LIKE A COWBOY
To achieve a cowboy or biker look, fold your bandana diagonally to form a triangle and wrap it around your neck, leaving the pointed end in the front. It's a quick and easy way to get that perfect style.
Don't be afraid to experiment with different ways to wear your bandanna. You can use it as a face mask, tie it around your neck as a scarf, or even tie a bow at the front for a more feminine touch. Let your creativity run wild and find the style that suits you best.
THE TUPAC BANDANA STYLE
The Tupac bandana style, also known as the "Thug Life" bandana, was a signature look of the late rapper Tupac Shakur. He often wore a black or red bandana tied in the front, with the knot positioned above his forehead.
HISTORY AND DEFINITION OF THE BANDANA
The bandanna is a versatile piece of fabric that has transcended time and geography, adapting to different styles and interpretations. It has remained a popular and timeless fashion accessory, and its iconic look is still recognized today.
The color of the bandanna can represent the era it belongs to, and it can be worn in various ways, whether at the beach or in the city. This square piece of fabric with a vintage and edgy vibe is making a comeback, becoming a favorite fashion accessory for those who want to achieve a modern, urban or retro pin-up look.
With its square shape and distinctive printed patterns, the bandanna has its origins in India, where it was originally used as a handkerchief. Its name comes from the Hindi language and the word "bandhana," which means "tie". The bandana or bandanna is typically colored and printed with a paisley pattern, and can be made from silk or cotton.
During the sixteenth century, Portuguese adventurers were seduced by this small piece of fabric and brought it back to Europe after settling in cities like Goa and Bombay. The English quickly adopted the bandana, simplifying the term to its current name.
In the United States, the bandanna became a signature accessory for cowboys to protect themselves from dust. Meanwhile, it wasn't until the 1980s that the bandanna gained popularity in France. Over time, the bandanna has become a timeless and versatile fashion accessory with a fascinating history.
Initially, the bandanna was not used as a fashion accessory, but rather as a symbol of recognition or belonging to a group or ideology. The bandanna has travelled across centuries, eras, and countries since its origin in India, and each time it has been embraced and accepted.
No discussion about the bandanna would be complete without mentioning the legendary Hollywood actor, John Wayne. He famously popularized the bandana by sporting it around his neck in all of his films.
If you are a real fan of bandannas, you can match your style with our floral satin bandanas or silk bandanna scarfs.
At Kamdana, the first black owned African-inspired bandanna ever, you can find a variety of bandanna scarves or headwraps that suit your style, whether it is elegant or street-style.
