Sweatdanna is more then a bandanna or headband. Its a "Sweatdanna" designed to look great & absorb sweat during your workout and active life.

Tell us about your business.

We lost our home in 2008 to foreclosure. As a stay home Mom with 3 daughters I needed to start working. I became a Zumba Instructor which allowed me to work and still be home. As an Instructor I was in need of finding something that would stop sweat rolling into my eyes and stinging. It also had to keep my hair from my face & stay in place and still look fashion forward. To my surprise, I found nothing that did the job well. I began thinking and designed "Sweatdanna" with an absorbing fabric liner sewn in. It WORKS more than your traditional headband or bandanna. Before I knew it, my friends & students began asking me about them and Sweatdanna was born. Gone are the days of the “70's sweatband and a plain bandanna” that slips off with any activity. The Sweatdanna will help with: • No more sweat rolling into your eyes •No more burning or stinging •No more distractions. So stay focused without grabbing a towel. In any lifestyle or environment, sweat with style!

What makes your business stand out?

With Sweatdanna we can allow you to print your company logo and use it as advertisement. Whether it's a Gym, Sport teams or leagues, your logo will be the first thing anyone will see. You may also keep it with no printing and use it at the gym, beach, bike riding or gardening. The options are endless. Its up to you to decide. Made for man, women & kids. If you are interested in purchasing, please message me on my Facebook page.

Believe enough in yourself to do the hard work necessary. To make the product a success you deserve.
