A Field Reference and Foraging Tool

Foraging is an art that's all but lost in today's modern society, but it can make a huge difference in your life. A foraging tool like this bandana is meant to give a person power over their situation, leading to purpose, and the ability to self-aid and self-rescue.

The Foraging Bandana was designed in cooperation with some of the finest foraging instructors. It lists the 12 most common plants/fungus of North America, including their common and scientific names. The field uses of all 12 plants/fungus are listed using part indicator icons on each plant illustration. The bandana also includes the ”5 Steps of Identifying Edible Plants” by Samuel Thayer and ”Rules and Ethics of Foraging” by Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen. 

We designed this bandana to act as a learning primer, field aid, and emergency reference. For neophytes, this bandana serves as a fun, stepping-stone educational tool. For more experienced foragers, this bandana should encourage impromptu foraging, help in sharing the passion of foraging with others, demonstrate alignment with the foraging lifestyle, and help promote awareness of continued education in this field.

We worked with experts, Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen and Dr. Nicole Apelian to choose plants based on the following criteria:

  • Abundance in USA

  • Ease of Identification

  • Few or no poisonous look-alikes

  • Ability to represent on a bandana

  • Ease to process into its usable form

Foraging bandana

This is a nice bandana. Great for identifying several native plants with notations for plant use. The all cotton bandana has many other uses such as straining dirty water as well as other normal applications where a bandana would be used. All an all great product. I would definitely refer this product to a friend!

Just what I expected!

I took this to a foraging class this past weekend and the instructor was impressed with it and kinda jealous he didn't think of that idea! I approve

Foraging Bandanna

My wife and I enjoy hunting edible and Medici able plants on our property in western North Carolina. I bought this for my wife for her birthday so we could have an easy reference when looking for new plants outside our property. Needless to say she loves it. Another great product from *****. Thanks guys.

Very Pleased

First, the "negative," if that's even applicable since this is just an opinion: The plant names are in Latin. Which is fine I guess, I will adapt, but it's one more thing to hold in your head while learning to positively identify what's edible. Okay, that aside it's still a 5 star rating. The material is soft and (most importantly) the screenprinted design is soft! There's a lot of detail, a lot going on, so it could've easily been "bulletproof" thick with plastisol (that's what screenprinting ink is called). Outstanding detail. Made in the USA. Can't dislike that no matter how you care to spin it. Light weight, but still has the feel of quality. My primary reason for buying this bandanna was because the "field" book, although small-ish, does not fit in my pocket. I bought the book after reading that most childhood poisonings are from wild plants. This bandanna is easy(ier) to carry and use than the Peterson's Guide. Thank you.
