Artful scarves inspired by the sea

Ocean Inspired Design

Immerse yourself in a world of natural patterns and artful designs inspired by our breathtaking blue planet. From microscopic seas to coral gardens on deep-sea mounts, our textiles celebrate and reveal the often unseen beauty of our oceans.

At least 10% of our profits go to marine science institutions supporting important environmental research. Every purchase matters. Be a game changer, this is our only home.

Our Plastic Oceans Notebook Collection

Microscopic Seas

Design inspired by the scientific exploration of the ocean. We used microscopy images of tiny marine algae and collaborated with ocean scientists to create the Gachon and Flora collections. Did you know that every third breath we take has oxygen produced from phytoplankton photosynthesis?

Our Plastic Oceans: Children merge marine science and art to talk microplastics

Our Plastic Oceans: Children merge marine science and art to talk microplastics

Our Plastic Oceans: Children merge marine science and art to talk microplastics . What do children think of the future? This is the story of Our Plastic Oceans Notebook Collection, and we're really, really excited about the work the children created for this project. The pupils of year 6 and 7 of Taynuilt Primary, joined by pupils from year 6 and 7 from Kilchrenan Primary, collaborated with Crùbag and scientists at the Scottish Association for Marine Science(SAMS) as a collective effort of art, marine science education, and action that aims at bringing awareness to the imminent issue of microplastic pollution. Inspired by the often unseen beauty of our oceans, Crùbag elevates marine science into art, whilst aiming to engage and educate. However, in this instance, the unseen is not a thing of beauty but rather an issue to make visible.
The Power of Small

The Power of Small

Every third breath we take has oxygen produced from phytoplankton photosynthesis.

If good things come in small packages then the microscopic world is a very exciting parcel indeed. We are surrounded by micro-organisms. Life started billions of years ago with microbes and there have been microscopic wars waged and pacts created ever since, driven by the need to adapt to a changing environment. There are microscopic organisms that support larger organisms like the beautiful relationship between algae and coral polyps and those that seek to exploit like the infection of algae by pathogens. All of this is for survival.

Flora Collection - Harmful algal blooms and why they matter

Discover the inspiration behind the Flora Collection. Algae are a large and diverse collection of organisms living almost everywhere on the planet where there is water. They range from microscopic individual organisms invisible to the naked eye, to the more familiar coastal seaweed. Like plants, algae have the ability to photosynthesise, or put simply, make energy from the sun.
