How To Style Your Bandits Bandanas

We’ve had so many people ask us how we wear our new Bandits Bandanas, that we decided to do a Staff Style Blog just for you! We’ll show you not just how we wear them, but the easiest way to fold the bandana for your desired look.
The Perfect Antidote for a Bad Hair Day.
Any day is a good day to wear a bandana but we find them particularly  useful on those days where you maybe skipped the shampoo that morning or...let's be real, the last three mornings, and need to get out the door.
 
Tying your bandana in a headband or ponytail makes for an effortless boho look. 
 
How to fold:
The Neckerchief

Paisley is one print you won’t find here! All of Bandits Bandanas designs are original artwork from artisans around the country! This keeps things fresh and original, while also supporting art in the USA. We love rocking pieces that are unique and tell a story and one of our favorite ways to show off these beautiful works of art is the neckerchief.
This look showcases the beautiful details of your bandana and lets that original design shine!

Another fun way to wear you bandana around your neck is tied into a bow!
How to fold:
 
The Wrist Wrap
If you think bandanas are just a trendy hair piece, think again! These works of art make a fine, bold statement piece on the wrist as well.  We love it tied this way to show off its colors! They are especially a great alternative for anyone who doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry.


How to fold:
 
We love this unisex accessory for its versatility and the pop of fun it can add to any outfit!
Did we mention that they give back to charity?
That’s right! Bandits donates 10% of proceeds to charities around the world chosen by the design artist. That’s a whole lot of good. 
 
We hope you enjoyed seeing the various ways we love to style our bandits! Which style was your favorite? Tell us in the comments below, or tag us in your photos so we can see you rocking your bandanas this summer!

“We need jobs, and we need a way to put our children in school.” This statement, spoken by internally displaced Ugandans, resonated with Yobel co-Founder, Sarah Ray. 


If these strong, resilient, hardworking, motivated individuals had access to dignified work, they would be able to provide many things for themselves that charity would seek to do for them. Things like school fees, clean water, nutritious foods, secure housing, clothing, and transportation. Jobs sounded like a good way forward.

In 2006, co-Founder Sarah Ray was living in Woodland Park, leading a High School youth group, and had just gotten married. Part way through the year, some of the students she worked with learned about her past travels to Africa and asked if she and her new husband would take them there. Only 25 at the time, Ray was surprised when the parents of these students agreed to allow she and her husband to lead them on a multi-week trip to a remote farm in Northern Uganda, followed by a 14 hour overland journey aboard an overland bus to Kenya.

Yobel is proud to be the sole purveyor of Ethnotek products in the United States! Co-Owners, Clay & Emily Ross were initially drawn to this incredible company’s techno-hip bags because of their high utility features (like this camera bag designed by photographers) and strong ethic toward both people and planet. As a conscious consumer, you can feel good that Ethnotek’s slow-production materials are sourced in person from the villages where they are created. Each artisan piece is purchased directly from the person who made it, for a fair price.
