Design Your Own Bespoke Scarf
Speaking of putting photos you love on beautiful objects, we're loving Hayden-Harnett's latest offering: The Bespoke Scarf. Exactly what you think, these gorgeous silk scarves are totally unique wearable memories, pieces of art, and/or designs you love.
Simply go to the Hayden Harnett site, upload your image, choose your fabric, scarf size, quantity, and boom, you're done. It's that simple. In just three weeks, your one-of-a-kind Hayden-Harnett scarf will arrive and you'll be looking like a ridiculously stylish guy or gal straight off the catwalk.
Bespoke Scarves are available in four sizes: 20"x20" (for $110), 30"x30" (for $150), 30"x40" (for $175), or 40"x40" (for $198). Once you've chosen your size, choose your fabric: silk chiffon for a sheer effect or sandwashed silk for an opaque effect. And any image is fair game. The images featured on the Hayden-Harnett website were made from personal photos, taken with a smartphone, and came out beautifully! That's right. Even your Path/Instagram/Hipstamatic photos can turn into gorgeous wearable pieces of art.
If you're worried about your image not being high quality enough, fear not. Each image file is carefully inspected by the designer before the printmaking process. If your image won't work, they'll let you know right away.
And if you don't know where to start, check out the gallery of images on the site and get inspired!
What images would you love to see in scarf form? Perhaps a memory from your wedding? A beautiful sunset from your latest vacation? Or a little neon or chevron action? Send a screenshot of your bespoke scarf ideas to us on Twitter, and we'll feature our favorites on Brit's blog!
