Lindsey Fout is the Portland,OR based textile designer, researcher, and teacher behind Last Chance Textiles. Originally from West Virginia, her rural Appalachian upbringing informs the integrity and utilitarian aspects of her work. She designs and crafts in her Portland, OR studio to harness an experimental and physical practice that echos the historical textile traditions that inspire her designs.
Last Chance makes colorful bandanas and scarves that feel timeless yet super special. Our hand-drawn patterns are based on historical references from around the globe (mostly textiles). Through this lens, textile traditions are both rooted and re-imagined, creating a vision and product that will stand the test of time. We utilize soft and sustainable quality fabrics like organic cotton, naturally dyed silk, and handwoven khadi.
*New Fabric* We're now using an even softer cotton voile with full saturation printing, meaning the printing shows on both sides! This cotton is a tad lighter but still strong due to a mercerization process that strengthens the fibers and makes them more absorbent. Soft cotton dyed a deep pitch black . Rosey-Danna is screen printed by hand with a pattern inspired by Art Deco illustrator George Barbier, 18th century French textiles AND a border tribute to Indian woodblock printing. Yep! This one is a real trip. Cotton Bandana Details * 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton * Folded Hem
