Jaguar Bandana

Appearing in the Spring and Summer 1986 catalogues, they made a re-appearance in Spring 1988. Only $15 for a set of four! Such a deal!

From the catalogue: “If a leopard could change its spots it would surely choose the showier ones of the jaguar–ornate, rosettelike, rich in hue. We’ve printed them on our bandanas in four different color patterns so that you may change your spots as well.”

The bandana is 24″x24″. It was also sold as a Jaguar Scarf at 27″x27″ in Spring 1988.

From my collection, dark red-brown spots.
