Rustic. True early fabric, two-tone salmon pink calico, called 'double pink' by textile historians.

Well made in U.S.A. Built to last.
Finite run small batch.

Real deal 100+yr. antique fabric, not 'vintage look' reproduction.

Generously sized bandana, scarf handcrafted from authentic late 19th-very early 20th century 'double pink' calico cotton that has never been used. This cotton was found w/ its original gilt-edged paper label, pasted on the pristine yardage: 'PASSAIC PINK FROCKS' brand. Pattern: miniscule cherise, reddish-pink random dots on dark, muted salmon/watermelon pink. Visually registers are a tiny floral print.

Lightweight, wrinkles readily for instant worn-in look.

Uncut selvedge to selvedge opposite sides. Time/labor intensive narrow hand rolled hem w/ off-white, high thread count off-white top stitching on other two sides. Hand stamped tag from vintage, American mfg. cotton twill tape.

Original, very narrow loomed late 1800s-to early 1900s fabric (24.5"w), most likely mfg. in one of the many New England textile mills in their heyday.

Though still strong, this venerable 100yr+ fabric deserves to be treated with a little more regard than younger vintage fabrics. Rest assured, it has years to go.

~24.5" x 24.5"

Wear as a kerchief, headband or tuck in your jeans back pocket. Indispensable for cleaning glasses, attending to sniffles or dabbing a teary eye.

Pre-washed once (hot H20/heavy duty cycle) to ensure integrity, cleanliness and minimize shrinkage.

Conscientious craftsmanship for durability.
