The History Of Bandanas
The bandana can be worn around the head, neck or in the back pocket of a pair of jeans. It can be worn in many different ways, and they all look cool. This history of this square cloth is as old as weaving itself. You can find images which date back more than 400 years ago with women wearing this typical piece of cloth.
It’s not completely sure where the name originally comes from, but its widely accepted that the word bandana comes from the Hindi ‘bāṅdhnū’ and in Urdu ‘bāndhnū’. It means a tied, bound cloth. By the 18th century, the word had been anglicized to bandanas.
