Personalised bandana handmade in London
Become a fashion designer in minutes by making your own bandana. This simple yet statement accessory is a must-have for any fashionable head. Forget just using it to keep your head shaded from the sun - although that is a great use for it - use yours for a whole host of occasions. Keep your hair out of your eyes while you are working, cover up a bad hair day with a rocking accessory, create a cute headband, even use it as a dog bandana for a particularly stylish pooch. Your bandana is finished with a pin hem. The hem is thin with corner stitching in a triangle and a 4 mm allowance. Your custom bandanas are handmade in London, ensuring each one is of the highest quality.
Style it with
Bandanas look amazing on men, women, children and even pets! For guys, wear yours the classic way to inject a punch of colour and style into your summer look. You could also tie it loosely around your neck, creating a modern version of the fabulous neckerchief. For girls, roll the bandana into a cigar shape and tie it in your hair with the knot at the top of your head. This will create an adorable rockabilly look that goes brilliantly with denim. Team it with your swimwear instead of a sun hat to add protection and a unique finish.
30°c wash, low tumble dry, iron at low heat only.
Reviews for Bandanas

Ordered a personalised headscarf. Super easy to design, very quick delivery and great quality thank you.
Very easy design application on the website allowed me to create my own funky design.
Good quality material and print.
Very well made and quick service.
Service was brilliant and delivery was pretty quick considering they made my personal item from scratch. Product quality is very good so I might get something for myself as what I bought was for a friend.
I also spoke to customer services via online chat and the woman I spoke to was friendly and very helpful.

Frequently asked questions:
What fabric does the bandana come in?
We make your bandana in Pima Lawn fabric. it is 100% cotton and lightweight. The plain weave is made up from varying thread sizes and has a solid base. It's a matte fabric which is light and airy as well as being soft. It is very strong, and highly durable.
How do I wear a bandana?
This might just look like a simple piece of fabric, but it is so much more than that! If you are wondering how to wear a bandana, then it is actually very easy. All you need to do is fold it diagonally in half. Next, wrap it gently around the neck, and tie the ends together in a knot or bow. The knot should be made at the back. Then, pull the front up over your face, and onto your head. There are many other ways to wear a bandana, but this is the classic way.
What design tips can you give me?
Our custom bandana printing service, allows you to create the hair accessory of your dreams! We print edge to edge, so, whether you want to upload a single image, or several images, you can do it all with the design platform. Silk is perfect for a more elegant occasion, and cotton is ideal for the summer. A repeat pattern looks stunning, so the design can be seen, no matter how it is worn.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
