What is a bandana?

Bandana looks like a simple scarf, in fact, it is the same. Today such an accessory is very popular among young people, and it can be called universal, as it can be worn by both girls and boys.


Today, many bandanas are used as sun protection or just for decoration. But initially it was intended for little else. For the first time the bandana appeared in Spain, and there she played the role of protecting the face and head from the sand. Then the idea was adopted by American cowboys who decided that such a scarf would help protect the neck from the sun, which was constantly open and often burned.
