When we decided to launch a limited-edition run of bandanas for Valentine’s Day, we were intent on making something really special, with the highest of quality. We met Fred, the one-man-show behind Man vs. Ink, and fell in love with his process (and his charming studio). He’s also the nicest.

While your typical bandana might be printed in large batches, Man vs. Ink applies the ink to each bandana by hand using a silk screen. The bandanas are exceptionally soft because of a special heat procedure he uses that evaporates the ink from the surface. Scroll to see how Man vs. Ink brought our limited-edition run of Love Bandanas to life in the weeks leading up to this post.

 

Pretty awesome right? We’re buying them for all our friends.
