The bold contrast dye on the fabric is made possible by the technique of Shibori-zome. This bandana/scarf is made of cotton, but it's so smooth it feels like silk.
 

Product details

The Shirushi Zome dye technique dates back to the Muromachi period (AD1300). Since the beginning, its main purpose has been to make fabric stand out with vibrant colors and imagery. Flags, furoshiki, noren (the curtain dividers over the doorways of pubs, bathhouses, and the like) even athletic wear are dyed using this technique. 

The Sugishita corporation from Kyoto has been honing their Shibori-zome skills over the years by making Festival jackets ("Happi") and Flags.

Available in 4 designs:
Large Crane  
Multiple mini Cranes 
Large Turtle
Multiple mini Turtles

The Crane is known for their elegance, and the monogomous relationship they form with a partner.
Therefore, in Japan, the crane is known as the symbol for bonding and long, strong relationships. 

The turtle is the symbol of happiness through longevity. It outlives the human lifespan, and therefore entrusted as the symbol of wisdom as well.
