Boston-based designer Taylor Perkins‘ Loop Scarves are mementos of cities she’s lived in or visited. The designs are based on the geographic coordinates of the city, which are then translated into striped patterns.
Currently Perkins has designed loop scarves for Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, but you can contact her to inquire about others. The scarves include snaps along each end, and are handmade in the USA from wool and organic cotton.
Taylor Perkins Loop scarves debut during New York Design Week, May 18 & 19 at stopTHINKshop, a pop-up shop for conscious consumerism. stopTHINKshop, 75 East 4th Street, NYC
