One Ear Brand - "Operation Mind F*ck" Mars Oxide
Operation Mindfuck was a counter-culture-art-social-protest to generate paranoia. They essentially invented the Illuminati. OEB extracted some of the themes and symbology from their works and rehashed it into a bandanna design. The art is heavily influenced by Japanese design and stencils. Aliens, UFOs and disorienting lines make up the bulk of the elements here. These would pair well not only with a kimono, but also gracefully worn as a babushka, or cleverly tied around the neck.
The color is inspired by iron oxide powders often used in dyeing in Japan. Using the hues of Mars as a guide we combined the dark ferrous of iron oxide with the playful yellow and somewhat austere copper orange. The combination is striking and feels a little retro. The dark hue is almost-black a hue similar to licorice candy, a brownish-black.
A series of artist drawn bandannas inspired by the design style of the 1800s both in art and in size. This 90cm x 90cm double selvedge bandanna is luxurious and versatile, It can easily be used as a mask, an eco-bag, a neck wrap, a wearable furoshiki, a head wrap, a belt, a halter top, couples picnic cloth, you get the idea... made in Japan
