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  

Designed in cooperation with:

Foraging Bandana

Excellent product. The print is vivid and easy to read. I have taken it on several hikes with my kids and they enjoy using it to identify plants along the way.

My favorite bandana ever!

The information packed into this bandana and the pictures of the plants will be so helpful when I am searching for these plants in the wilderness! Best of all, it will keep me cool around my neck or in my hair at the same time! And, it was delivered very quickly to me!

Blurry printing

While I like the size, fabric and pictures, some of the icons and words aren't crisp looking.
