The culture behind the style
This "Selva" pattern is inspired by the rainforests throughout Peru - Selva means jungle in Spanish. The Shipibo is an ancient community from the Peruvian Amazon whose designs are considered visual songs reflecting their culture & cosmology. They believe a healthy life is achievable when one is in harmony with nature & the universe. This is reflected in their beautiful, intricate designs seen in their pottery, clothing, textiles and bodies. Two sisters from Peru at Paco & Lucia design & make these beautiful creations.
A style both you & your pet can wear!
Colorful tones complement the fun geometric pattern for a pop of color for your pets - and YOU! Not everyone dresses up their pets, but a bandana around your pet's neck is a fun & easy way to make a fashion statement.
People can wear this cool piece around their neck too. One of our people has been seen wearing this as a bandana, headband, around a ponytail or bun, on a wrist, as a belt, tied around her handbag - twinning with her dogs!
Extreme Design & Construction Details
This piece has 2 separate fabric pieces, so it is actually a "double bandana". Along the bottom edges is a pretty pearl overlock stitch that creates a sturdy edge less prone to fraying.
Across the top of the bandana is a French stitch that overlocks the 2 pieces, which are then top stitched on each side to match the pearl overlock color.
