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:

The only thing that would make it better would be if it was a bit brighter, print is dull,hard to read.

Beautiful and functional

This piece of kit is awesome. It is so ascetically pleasing I may buy anther to frame for my wilderness medicine group. multifunction for all the normal things a large bandana can be used for plus the identification guide. Talk about a win-win-win.
