The bandana came from India but it came into its own in America with the cowboys! This is a very folksy, very American bandana…with a few hearts thrown in. 
Works well as a mask
Screen printed by hand with cochineal on madder-dyed 100% organic indian cotton
Printed and hemmed in Connecticut

We wash things too often nowadays! There is really no need to wash clothing all the time, a simple airing is often enough -especially for silk, which naturally fights off dust and mold. But when the time does comes to wash, here is how it can be done.

You can soak your naturally-dyed garments by hand, send them to the dry-cleaners, or they can go in the machine, but:

2. Wash COLD
3. Use a DELICATE cycle
4. Use a gentle Ph neutral soap like Marseilles soap or Synthrapol
5. Hang Dry

Some fading is normal and can lead to greater beauty -don’t we love our faded jeans even more? Yes we do!

The Heart In Art

by art historian Virginia Brilliant

"Nineteenth-century American folk artists embraced the heart motif as never before. They made everything in the shape of a heart, from muffin molds and cookie cutters to butter presses, hat boxes, snuff boxes, keepsake boxes, pin cushions, mirror frames, metal trivets, and locks."
