Update: 12.2.16 I have the new Floral and Fox prints on the sewing table and ready to start turning into kerchiefs. Prices marked down for Holiday early adopters.
We have been looking for fabric with a bit more weight than a standard bandanna, a bit more loft for warmth on cool fall (winter) days. We are sourcing the cloth for these from a Japanese importer who works directly with the mills in Osaka, then cutting and overlocking the edges in house. Featuring an incredibly soft and open double weave fine gauze, this 100% cotton has a silk like hand and a thin fleece like loft. There are two woven layers, with a joining weave every square cm.
Contrasting merrowed edge stitch. Hand printed Ocean Air Cycles logo at the corner
Hand made, luxurious material, but made to be used. There is a bit of wabi-sabi in each, to remind you each time you pull it out of the wash that these are tools not wardrobe queens to be saved for special days. Mine see duty as everything from the intended kerchiefs, to hankys and lunch napkins. Te first samples I made up a couple years back are still in daily rotation.
Size 21" x 21"
Weight is 35g (Standard Bandana for Reference is 32g)
