Hi-res NASA Imagery on Scarves

Fashion-Tech Week...  An apparel manufacturer, Slow Factory, is using hi-res NASA imagery in its lines of scarves, with proceeds benefiting the DIGNITY Fund.

Using imagery from the International Space Station, Hubble telescope, and Mars orbiter as featured art in its lines of scarves, Slow Factory is transforming high tech into wearable art.  Proceeds from sales help to support the DIGNITY Fund, a humanitarian effort aiding women and children affected by conflict in the Middle East.

The DIGNITY Fund was inspired by the experiences of Slow Factory Founder, Celine Semaan, who was forced to flee Lebanon’s civil war in the 1980s.  Semaan explains, “My family fled Lebanon during the war in the 1980s.  I understand the struggle that many women and children are enduring there on a daily basis.  With the DIGNITY Fund, we’re acknowledging their plight while helping them to meet the needs of daily life.”

Working alongside ANERA, a leading humanitarian organization, the DIGNITY Fund is using proceeds from the sales of Slow Factory's fall line to distribute Dignity Kits that provide hygienic items, clothing, and medicine to women and children in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, and the West Bank. 

Gaza by Night, the latest scarf in Slow Factory’s ‘Cities by Night’ collection, commemorates the launch of the DIGNITY Fund. It features an image of Gaza taken by International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst, who remarked: "We do not see any borders from space.  We just see a unique planet with a thin, fragile atmosphere, suspended in a vast and hostile darkness. From up here it is crystal clear that on Earth we are one humanity, we eventually all share the same fate."

Slow Factory, a fair trade scarf manufacturer with operations in the U.S. and Italy, has found a way to incorporate hi-res NASA photography into its wearables while simultaneously providing humanitarian relief.
