1990s Sandana with Bad Bird Silkscreen and early tag

I was excited to find this early 1990s Sandana last week because of the multiple silkscreen designs on the back flap and the forehead wrap. Black canvas material silkscreens are pretty common, but the addition of silkscreens is (from what I’ve seen) significantly less common.

The large silk screen of the Sandana Bad Bird is in pretty good shape and has teeth spelling out “Sandana.”

The front head wrap has the flying skulls silk screened on it. I didn’t realize before, but these are actually skulls wearing Sandana head wraps.

The same skulls are silk screened on the back of the head wrap. This is directly underneath the front silk screen. The back terry cloth looks to be in decent shape.

Also unusual on this early 1990s Sandana head wrap is the early Sandana tag, which looks printed, instead of stitched. According to Paul “Sandana King” Yun aka fpspaul, “That tag is the first type of tags that sandana ever made.”

This Sandana head wrap came with some mask parts from a Bay Area (San Francisco) based paintballer.
