Why buy Accoutrement's bandanas?
Here are the major highlights of our handmade reversible bandanas created with pure love and care:
New fabrics are loaded with chemicals like formaldehyde, dyes, pesticides and insecticides. At Accoutrement, we wash all our fabrics prior to sewing them, please read all about it below.
We use quality 100% cotton fabrics.
Great selection of beautiful prints that are carefully selected.
Professional sewing and stitching allowing the bandanas to be washed several times.
Our deluxe reversible bandanas have snaps, so you can tie them with a wrap-around knot(s), just the snaps or a combination of both.
We keep it uncomplicated with only 2 sizes: S/M & M/L - please see below for measurements and details.
Hand-sewn in Los Angeles, CA.
There is nothing else like it out there!
All fabrics are washed prior to sewing
Do you know how many dangerous chemicals (such as formaldehyde, dioxin, etc.), dyes, pesticides and insecticides are present in new fabrics? Many studies say that an average of 25% of the weight of new fabric is purely added chemicals.
At Accoutrement, we care deeply about pets’ health and we pre-wash all the fabrics using environmentally safe products in order to:
Remove the chemicals.
Remove the chemicals’ smell.
Remove the excess dyes, so the bandanas won’t leave a discoloration on the pets’ coat.
Make sure our bandanas don’t create health issues for people and their pets, and that they don’t aggravate allergies.
Prior to cutting and sewing our bandanas, here are the steps that we take with the new fabrics:
Soak the fabric for 2 hrs in warm water with high-end Persil detergent.
Wash the fabric in warm water (30 minutes cycle).
Tripe rinse the fabric (50 minutes cycle) - we use a tiny bit of fabric softener for static control and softness.
Dry the fabric.
Iron the fabric with a rotary iron - no added starch or any other products are used once washed.
This whole process ensures a color stable product and color fastness (won’t bleed or fade).

How to tie the bandanas
IMAGE 1 - In order to take full advantage of the reversible bandana’s beauty, you can roll the top of the bandana twice on itself to show the backing at the top for contrast. Although, you don’t have to, and can use the full length of the bandana - how to tie them will be the same as explained below.
IMAGE 2 - You can just bring the snaps together and simply tie the bandana this way.
IMAGE 3 - You can do one wrap-around knot and then bring the snaps together for a secure closure. If just one wrap-around knot is too loose for your pet’s neck, then do two wrap-around knots and secure with the snaps.
At Accoutrement, we care about the environment and we use the fabric to it's full capacity, with less than 1% cutting wastes. That is why we only offer 2 sizes, but they fit the smallest dogs to large breeds.
Most fabrics are 100% cotton, but some are a poly-blends where cotton is the main fiber.
The specific origin of the fabrics is unknown, although probably mostly from Asia, but we purchase all our fabrics from main suppliers in the USA.
We originally wash them in warm water, so that can absolutely be repeated, although cold water is best to preserve the colors of the fabric over time.
Wash in normal cycle.
Dry in low or regular heat, or hang dry.
Can be iron at maximum heat.
