Embroidered Cochineal Paisley Silk Bandana
In collaboration with Last Chance Textiles we bring you this exceptional collection of chainstitch embellished LCT bandannas.
“Each DieTrying TX piece is created using the same hand operated vintage chainstitch machines that were used to create traditional western wear. While most embroidery today is computerized and mass produced, the work done on these vintage machines is hand done and made one piece at time.”
Naturally dyed with Cochineal, one of the most expensive and precious of the natural dyes and is derived from a scale insect (Dactylopus coccus). Paisley-Danna is screen printed by hand with a pattern inspired by historic Russian and Indian embroidered textiles. Made from raw silk noil, a fabric with a slightly nubby texture that is naturally warm and wicking.

Naturally dyed color may vary across dye lots. Expect slight fading and patina over time, this is inherent to textiles dyed with plants and should be embraced. Variation in dye color, print, and sewing is testament to the handmade process. You can read more about how to care for naturally dyed silk here.
