Designer Uses Open-Source NASA Hubble Telescope Images For Her Line Of Fantastically Ethereal Silk Scarves

Mystic Mountain

Celine Semaan Vernon of Slow Factory has designed line of fantastically ethereal scarves and other silk wares around open-sourced images from the NASA Hubble Telescope using only organic materials and socially responsible vendors.

Everything is consciously made in collaboration with craftspeople using sustainable practices: Our natural fabrics are sourced from a socially and environmentally responsible company in India, and each limited edition piece is handcrafted in Montreal and New York from NASA’s open data collection of satellite images.
