Steeped in centuries of tradition, Black Bandana is a great new Paisley addition to the THIR range.
One of our original, most-loved designs, this Yellow/Black-on-Saffron Te Araroa THIRband is the product of centuries of tradition. According to Wikipedia, Paisley or Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the boteh or buta, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian and Indian origin (that features heavily on this design). Such designs became very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries and we re-introduced to popular western culture in the 1960’s by the Beatles and the infamous Summer of Love.
Paisley works incredibly well as a THIR design because it replicates very easily and doesn’t have any obviously visible edges. Black Bandana, as the name suggests, has a black base colour and features a white paisley pattern over the top. The design is a lot more sparse/minimal than our other paisley designs and would suit someone looking for a more subtle design.
THIRbands are multifunctional headwear in made from Enduracool, a UV, eco-friendly, technical fabric. Enduracool is moisture wicking, light and breathes extremely well – great for marathons, ultramarathons, trail and mountain running, OCR, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, crossfit, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing, cycling or a serious yoga session.
