Ethereal Silk Scarves Feature NASA’s Photographs of Space


If you're fascinated by the cosmos, then you can now wrap yourself in this vast odyssey. Celine Semaan Vernon of Slow Factory has designed a line of beautiful silk scarves based on the open-sourced images from the NASA Hubble Telescope. Her limited-edition ethereal creations depict brilliant blues and warm oranges with tiny stars that dot the garments. We can think of each scarf as a reminder that space is constantly around us, and that we can find a certain comfort in knowing that the stars are always above.

Slow Factory believes that we should slow down and look at the big picture. Their products are consciously made with craftspeople who use sustainable practices. Natural fabrics are sourced from a socially and environmentally responsible company in India, and later handcrafted in Montreal and New York. With their scarves, you'll wear the universe on your shoulders while doing some good on the Earth at the same time.
