Day Tripper Dog Bandana (Red)
Retro white swallows on red Japanese Cotton sets the tone for your next dog walking adventure
It is said that the swallow represents love, care and affection towards family and friends, and the loyalty of a person always returning to them. This devoted little bird also represents freedom and hope. Both very appropriate for dog owners!
The Day Tripper Dog Bandana features a gorgeous flying white swallow motif on high quality red Japanese Cotton. Traditional scout knot style ties it at the back of the neck and size can be adjusted by simply rolling it up or down to increase or reduce the triangle.
Our new signature red tag has been updated with logo on one side and FETCH SOMETHING SPECIAL printed on the reverse. And just like our world famous leather collars & leads, these stylish dog bandanas are also Made in England.

The swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience. Of British origin in the early days of sailing, it was the image of a barn swallow, usually tattooed on the chest, hands or neck.
According to one legend, a sailor tattooed with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles (9,260 km); a sailor with two swallows had travelled 10,000 nautical miles (18,520 km).
Travelling great distances was extremely difficult and dangerous in the early days of sailing, so one or more swallow tattoos denoted a very experienced and valuable sailor.
Another legend holds that since swallows return to the same location every year to mate and nest, the swallow will guarantee the sailor returns home safely.
A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second swallow tattooed at the end of their tour of duty, upon return to their home port. It is also said that if the sailor drowns, the swallows will carry their soul to heaven
