Bandanas are handkerchiefs made of silk or cotton with coloured motifs. The bright patterned fabrics originated in India and then spread over the world. The garment item gained high popularity in 1970-s when rock bands began to use them as a significant element of the image and turned into a real craze for fans who were eager to get a custom bandana with a group label; now one can order an accessory with own inscription or picture.
There are numerous wearing options: fold and turn your bandana into a headband, tie on a neck or wrap around a wrist, wear on hips with jeans or decorate your handbag. Some muslim women still put it on like a traditional kerchief instead of hijab in Central Asia. You see, there is a plentiful range of variations.
