Likely the most iconic scarf throughout history, the bandana has come a long way since its early days. The word bandana is thought to originate from the Sanskrit term “badhnati” which means “to tie.” The paisley pattern most people associate with modern-day bandanas actually harkens back to the 18th Century. Since then, many generations of people have enjoyed the versatility of the bandana – from cowboys to runway models. Bandanas are playful and fun as well as utilitarian. Beyond protecting horseback riders from dusty trails and bikers from open roads, head bandanas for cancer patients are a great option to cover hair loss. Their shorter, square shape and lightweight cotton fabric provides a cool, comfortable alternative to traditional longer head scarves. With a wide array of colorful options including classic paisley, batik, tie-dyed, and creative prints, you’ve come to the right place for all your bandana needs!
