Desert inspired designs painted by artist Jenna Tomasello.
These cotton bandanas measure 22x22 inches and are sewn by the fair trade, women's co-op, DouglaPrietaWorks, in Agua Prieta, Sonora. The patterns are screen printed with water-based ink in South Tucson by the union print shop, the Gloo Factory.
Machine washable, they continue to soften with age.
Printed in small batches, the colors may vary slightly from those pictured.
Red - "Fillies & Falcons" - A pattern painted for my daughter.
Yellow - "Saguaro Bloom" - Painted to celebrate the blooming Saguaro.
Turquoise - "Monsoon" - Monsoon clouds and lightning bring Arizona Poppy, Desert Marigold, Devils Claw flower, and Dogweed. A painting of violence and softness, cycles and new growth, it was painted with the intention that it would bring on the rains in July.
Blue - "Summer Night Bloom" - The Queen of the Night cactus blooms as the Hornworm and Sphinx Moth fly on their host plant, Sacred Datura. The Pegasus constellation dances in the overhead sky.
Burgundy - "Winter Friends" - A pattern of winter plants, Brittle Bush, Hairyseed Bahia, Wolfberry, Creosote, and Paper Flower.
Sienna Brown- "Star Constellation Map" - A map of the stars to carry with you.
