Hubble Space Telescope and Terra Satellite Images Used to Make Beautiful Silk Scarves


Here’s an interesting idea. Designer Celine Semaan Vernon enjoys looking at the freely available images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Terra Satellite as much as anybody else, but she’s taken it a step further. She decided to use those images to create beautiful silk scarves through her company Slow Factory.

We’ve seen canvas prints, and metal prints, and wood prints, and all sorts of prints, but we’ve never heard of someone putting the Horsehead nebula or the Cat’s Eye nebula or an image of Sea Ice off of Eastern Greenland on silk they actually wear around.

Take a look for yourself:






Most of their inventory is scarves, but they have branched out into other products as well.

    I like the concept of the product, but I think they’d look even more striking if they hadn’t shot this against a white wall.

    also they could have changed the models to non-ugly ones

    just a thought…

    I hope that she branches out to menswear and produces ties. I’m a fan of Jerry Garcia ties.

    I can’t wait until they change the Petapixel commenters to non-asshole ones.

    They are human. Its a known problem with the breed.

    what don’t you like about the actual photography?

  • RMJ

    Sorry, you look absolutely stunning. I was just watching the photos through non-beer glasses, so, I didn’t notice it at first.
