The History of The Bandana
The bandana was famously adopted by style icons of the 1950s who partnered the iconic bandana, tied in a dainty bow, with a bold red lip. In the 1990s the bandana made a big comeback adding dimension to denim and urbanising any outfit. This small but mighty piece of cloth has stood the test of time as it harks back to the times of Ancient Greece and Rome alongside cementing roots in South Asia and now firmly sitting at the table of fashion after undergoing a western rebrand.
