I'm picking up the cotton hybiscus bandana today, but honestly, I'm not so fond of it. The only reason is because it's in cotton and not silk. It's not even produced in silk. This made me think about the pros and cons for both material and what I really find more useful. silk pros more vivid colours more comfortable to wear cotton pros more durable (a LOT) easier to clean What do you prefer, and would you get a cotton scarf just because of the design even though you didn't like the material?
