Lightweight Bandana - India Ink Marble
This lightweight bandana is a part of a collection that features the colors that have been cherished in Japan for centuries. Many of these colors derive their names from nature.
The technique of marbling a sheet of paper with India ink was first introduced during the Heian period (794 - 1185). Marbled paper was used for important occasions such as sutra copying and waka (classical Japanese poem) writing. Random patterns and colors of marbled paper were used to tell fortune.
It is infinitely handy and versatile; wear it around the neck, cover the head, wrap your lunchbox or use it however you'd like.
