These bandanas were made to celebrate the Flint Hills of Kansas, the location of the gravel event Unbound.
Each bandana has been hand-dyed with osage orange tree heartwood and screen printed with a profile of the native plants and rocky terrain of the Flint Hills region.
We chose to use osage orange for the dye material as their namesake, the Osage people, include the Flint Hills in their ancestral territory. Although the tree is not native to Kansas it was introduced in the late 1800’s as hedgerows for settlers’ farms after the Osage had been removed from the state.
Preorder now for pickup in Emporia at the All Things Gravel Expo on Thursday or Friday the 1st and 2nd of June. Use code: EXPOPICKUP to override shipping costs.
