The Tides Bandana honors the power of the moon, the changing of the tides, and the seaweeds and small creatures that inhabit coastal tide pools.
Bandanas are incredibly versatile and have been worn and used functionally for generations by sailors and seafarers, farmers, cowboys, babushkas, and more. I create these bandanas to continue a tradition of functional fabric that features a variety of colors, landscapes, and details. These bandanas are meant to be keepsakes, companions for everyday life and adventures.
