Big Chop Bandana
The Big Chop bandana is inspired by the 'big chop' haircut with a play on nautical themes, including sparrows to guide one home. Ultimately, we each decide for ourselves what beautiful means. Natural, processed, dyed, short, long. We choose what we see in the mirror and we decide that what we see is beautiful 100% Cotton. 23" x 23". Designed in Washington DC. Limited edition.
Behind the Brand
All Very Goods is based in Washington DC. We started the company with the simple idea that we wanted to create beautiful, high end goods with a focus on representation. We use history, illustrations, graphic design, textile patterns and symbols from Africa, Asia and Europe to create products that are visual metaphors for a shared African American history and present experience. The bandanas are intended to be a conversation with the wearer about identity, culture and personal mythology. Essentially, how we become who we are because of and in spite of the influences around us. The overwhelmingly positive response to the bandanas led to prints and greeting cards. These paper goods use the same patterns, symbols and history in a way that creates a conversation within the home and that can be shared from one person to the next.
