Abell 370 chiffon scarf

Abell 370 chiffon scarf


Abell 370 chiffon scarf - the perfect gift for any astronomer.

Abell 370 is a cluster of galaxies that lies approximately 4,000,000,000 light years away. You can see that some of the light sources in the cluster appear elongated; this is due to gravitational lensing, a phenomenon in which a large, dense object (like a black hole) is between a light source and an observer (us, on Earth) and bends light from the source.

Using high-resolution astronomical images, each scarf starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the nebula down the centre of the scarf. I then get my designs custom-printed onto high-quality organic cotton in Europe. I make each tie by hand (and sewing machine!) in my Parisian apartment, before carefully packaging it in a Cepheid Studio branded box so it's ready to gift.

All my items are beautifully finished and are 100% hand made by me in my Paris studio.
