Combinations & Permutations Bandanas
Combinations and permutations of indigo and buckthorn dyes permeate natural fiber colors, and are recombined in a woven gradient plaid. The indigo, Persicaria tinctoria, a native of Asia, was purposefully grown from seed on my tiny plot of land. Common Buckthorn, a European shrub which is commonly considered an invasive here, was purposefully removed from nearby conservation land. Fiber from Vermont raised sheep and alpaca, both of which have a long history of breeding, economics and land use across many continents. While these materials are local and sustainable in the present, they all tell a story of migrations, power dynamics, hope and resistance. May these bandanas be worn with recognition of the past and a dedication to walking ahead on a path of peace, sustainability and reconciliation.
These lightweight, generously sized, bandanas are great to tie around your neck, or over your head, for a splash of warmth, color and connection to the land. They can be folded triangularly in four different ways to highlight different colors.
25" square. Four available.
Wonderfully soft and squishy, the New England grown and spun fiber is 50% Romeldale wool / 50% fine grade alpaca. Hand wash.
