Stetson Paisley Bandana Red

See the Stetson collection here

The word "bandana" is derived from the Hindi word "bandhana," meaning "to tie." These colourful, patterned cloths were traditionally used as head coverings, sweatbands, dust masks, and even makeshift bags. They were particularly popular among labourers, farmers, and soldiers due to their practicality and versatility.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, bandanas gained popularity in the Western world, particularly in the United States. They were adopted by cowboys, frontiersmen, and pioneers as essential accessories for protection against the sun, wind, and dust of the American frontier. 


In addition to their practical uses, bandanas became symbols of rebellion and counterculture during the 20th century. They were worn by bikers and activists as a way to express individuality and solidarity with marginalised groups. The bandana's association with subcultures like punk rock, hip hop, and skateboarding further cemented its status as a symbol of defiance and nonconformity.

Today, the bandana remains a beloved accessory with enduring appeal. Its versatility allows it to be worn in a variety of ways, from traditional head coverings to face masks, neck scarves, and even as decorative accents on clothing and accessories.

How do I find my hat size?

Take a measuring tape and place it at the back of your head. Next, draw both sides of the tape to the front, just above the ears and over the eyebrows, bringing it together roughly in the middle of your forehead. Please be careful not to pull the tape measure too tight. You can now use a mirror to read off your head circumference.

We recommend rounding up the number you see to the next full centimetre (e.g. round 57.5 cm up to 58 cm).
