Curiosity was launched to Mars, Slowfactory was launched online

You can pre-order your unique scarves now!
This idea of printing Hubble images from Nasa Goddard's Flickr account came to me a few years ago.

So I tweeted the idea. And went back to a wireframe or a design and continued my work. A few months / years went by, and I had never forgotten about it.
I love Les carrés d'Hermès. I try to collect them. I consider them as art pieces. Each one tells a particular story, and they are all made in collaboration with other artists. I love that about Hermès. The scarves are made in small quantities and are considered collectables.
The first Collection Slowfactory will present in its online boutique / gallery is a series of scarves made from Nasa Hubble images. The license on the images is under Creative Commons CC-By and since I am a Creative Commoner to the soul, I always wanted to create a wearable experience.
Next week we are going to probably go in fashion shooting mode and launch our look book! I'm so excited about this first in a series of cool collaborations of mixing science and fashion in a spirit of openness and beauty.
