Inspiration - Phaeocystis Pale Silk Chiffon Scarf was inspired by Phaeocystis algae, sampled by scientists in Loch Creran. With this design, we wanted to inspire a sense of lightness and joy.
The Scientific Story - The algae Phaeocystis was sampled by marine scientist Ruth Paterson in Loch Creran, a marine fjord on the west coast of the Highlands of Scotland. The individual cells of this alga form globs and the globs form colonies as a linked chain of sugars called polysaccharide gel matrix.
