Bandana - North Star (Harriet Tubman I)

A tribute to Harriet Tubman through an interpretation of the headscarf in her iconic photograph.

Although the photo is black and white, her headscarf has been described as maroon with white dots. Using research into widely used textiles from the period when the photograph would have been taken, I created a maroon, red and white pattern that is consistent with cotton fabrics made in the mid-19th century. 

The deep red colors are also meant to be symbolic of the depth of Harriet Tubman's conviction to the cause of emancipation despite the risks. The white is symbolic of the stars that she used to guide her way. In the lower right corner is a graphic of the north star constellation, which she used to help guide her as she led people to their freedom. 

This bandana is hand printed in India. It was created in partnership with the National Archives foundation and includes both the All Very Goods and National Archives Foundation logos in the lower left corner.
