The Arcus bandana is handmade with GOTS certified hemp fabric. Hemp is one of the most sustainable and low-impact crops that require very little water, no pesticides, and naturally fertilises the soil it grows in.
Rainbows make us happy! No less when embroidered by hand with our favourite certified organic Merino wool from Guldbransdalen, Norway. With its beautiful texture and unique details, the Arcus bandana is something very special.
Neck measurements listed are represented with both buttons clasped. Each button will modify the neck measurement bigger or smaller by 3 cm if required. For example, on a size S the first button gives a neck measurement of 32 cm, both buttons 35 cm, and the last button 38 cm.
Please allow a one-finger gap (smaller breeds) or a two-finger gap (larger breeds) when you measure for a comfortable and secure fit.
Hemp is one of the oldest fibres in the world and is similar to linen in texture. The fabric has been softened naturally with fruit enzymes which means even the most sensitive furiends can wear it. Other natural advantages include keeping your furiend warm in winter, cool in summer, and even protect from UV rays.
Each bandana takes a minimum of 2 hours to make – the embroidery is entirely done by hand!
We source our hemp fabric from another local and small family business here in NSW, Australia.
The hemp fabric is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified – meaning that at least 90% of the fibres are certified organic, no harmful chemicals have been used at any stage of the production process, water has been treated to a very high standard before release, and that workers safety and rights issues have been honoured.
With every order, we plant a tree! This will support a healthy environment for Australian wildlife and future generations.
The only high you will get from the Arcus bandana is the moral high-ground you will stand on knowing your furiend is wearing a sustainable fabric. Thank you for supporting small, local, and handmade!

Due to the handmade embroidery details, please wash by hand only and dry flat in shade. We recommend using an environmentally friendly laundry detergent. Alternatively, our favourite “Ecover stain remover” works great for spot cleaning.
