A bandana (from Hindi bandhana = bind ) is a square scarf, usually 60 cm × 60 cm in size, which is worn as a scarf tied at the back. Often, it is also used as a cloth of a hijab to hide hair on the forehead. For other uses, see bandanas as a scarf or otherwise inserted as a fashion accessory, such as a bracelet on the wrist or loose in the back trouser pockets. Bandanas are often printed with paisley patterns.
