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

Very Nice!

My wife instantly loved it, it's a great addition to our backcountry gear since I use big a$$ bandana's all the time for everything from a foraging container, head/neck scarf, or to attach to my pack as extra carry container. If I were to make a product improvement suggestion is that it could be bigger!

Helpful & Beautiful

Recently received my foraging bandana and it exceeded my expectations..the art work is excellent and the quality of the cloth is very good as it is of a nice heavier weight cotton. To ensure you know how to use this resource effectively, you will need source reading material. The quality is so good, that, even if you never had a desire to forage, it would be most beautiful as a framed piece of art...so...multifunctional!

Beautiful and useful!

This is beautifully designed and I love the idea of useful knowledge-imparting wearables. Nice illustrations and a very clever legend for knowing what parts of the plants are edible, medicinal etc. I think the design also maximizing the amount of information that can be conveyed. Nice thick fabric, this is not one of those cheap super thin bandanas. The materials are high quality. It's a work of art to look at and would make a nice gift. I'm very happy with it! I wish that ***** would do more of these, maybe knots, tarp setups, constellations would be good options.
