Slow Factory

Clouds and Rainbow Scarf


From one of our favorite NYC brands, 100% fair-trade accessories maker Slow Factory, the “We Are Home” collection uses NASA satellite images to create beautifully patterned silk scarves. From cloud vortices near the South Pacific’s Heard Island to the Outer Aleutian Islands to dusty deserts, the scarves are fascinating and pretty. Plus, money from the scarf and tie sales support an education initiative, which benefits Syrian refugees thanks to American Near East Refugee Aid (aka ANERA) and UNICEF. Slow Factory’s founder, Celine Semaan Vernon, is a refugee herself, so the initiative is especially close to her heart—therefore donating $10 from each sale was a no-brainer.
