We have been merging marine science and art since 2013. Crùbag's colourful textiles and one-of-a-kind sustainable accessories reveal the unseen beauty of the ocean and help communicate important environmental science. Our collectable pieces are paired with the science story that inspired them. Together we can celebrate and support craftsmanship, people and planet. At least 10% of our profits go back to fund marine science institutions and our ocean literacy and science and art outreach programmes. Marine science is beautiful. Wear a beautiful scarf and become an ocean advocate.
The Seamount Collection is here
Inspired by deep-sea mountains, this is our most ambitious collection to date. The seamount collection is a multidisciplinary effort that merges art, fashion and world-class marine science.
This powerful, gender-neutral collection curates a selected range of artful accessories designed and developed by Jessica Giannotti in collaboration with deep-sea researchers to reveal the world of mysterious underwater mountains. Every piece is carefully printed on the finest nature-based fibres and is finished by hand by skilled artisans in Italy.See all →
A new species shared with the world for the first time
This beautiful alien-looking organism is a crustacean living among hard corals in the deep sea. The Arcturididae series will take you to some of the most remote and unexplored places on Earth.
Their bodies mimic coral polyps
They are a commensal species, meaning that one organism benefits from the other without harming it.

Jessica is the founder and the Creative Director at Crùbag. She designs with love and quirkiness, searching for those unseen natural patterns and hidden processes and aspects of the oceans we've never seen and felt, but which do exist and have a huge impact on our planet as a whole and help make this planet a liveable home. Explore with us the exciting design and collection development processes at Crùbag.
Let us take you on an incredible journey. One that starts 200 metres below the surface of the ocean and extends to several thousand metres;, to one of the most distant and remote places on the planet. Seldom explored by man and inhospitable to all but the most tenacious of organisms.
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.
