The bandana has been used to wipe sweaty brows as much as it’s been used as a vehicle for portable art, and Kiriko continues using the utilitarian medium, but with their distinctly Japanese background as inspiration.
Their Two-Tone Harvest Bandanas are imbued with Japanese iconography, giving the traditionally American accessory a sense of Japanese heritage. Printed in Portland onto custom-dyed cotton fabric, the bandanas feature floral elements intertwined with igeta (well) symbols, a combination that represent the resources required for a bountiful harvest. With that in mind, one should be reminded of the endless uses these bandanas can fulfill.
Available for $28, at Bridge & Burn.
