The Verb Bandana - NEW!
The humble bandana, just a square (21x21") piece of cloth which can be useful in countless ways: to wear around one's neck to keep warm or cool, to wear around one's head keeping flyaway strands of hair at bay, to wrap around one's in progress knitting project and simply knotted as a closure, as a cloth napkin, or to be hung on a wall as art - as in this case, this bandana's artwork was first sketched by A Verb for Keeping Warm's pre- and post-production natural dyeing (and foraging) guru, Adrienne Rodriguez. The sketch was then handed off to another Verb employee, Lindsay Frances, a talented illustrator and designer, who carried forth the design to what it currently is now.
The design details the different facets of Verb and Verb's community: dye plants like coreopsis, indigo, and madder, there are cotton plants, sheep whose wool is being spun into yarn, and then knit into a scarf (yay for our knitting community!), the verb dyepots (woot! natural dyers!), and a pair of shears and pins (an homage to our sewing community), and a tapestry loom (much love for our weaving community!) with a weaving featuring two dachshunds (shout out to shop dogs Cleo and Callie). We hope as much as we see us in this bandana - you also see you!
This bandana was printed in Oakland. There are currently two versions available: undyed and indigo-dyed (in Verb's Oakland studio).
