Scientific Story

This is our first collection, inspired by research on algae/pathogen interactions and developed in collaboration with marine scientist Prof Claire Gachon. We used unseen and breathtaking microscopy images of Claire’s exciting research on the warfare between the brown marine algae Ectocarpus and the beautiful oomycete pathogen Eurychasma.  Her work is shedding some light on how these interactions impact marine ecosystems.

Positive Impact

Each scarf its paired with its written ocean literacy story, sharing the science and images that inspired the collection. 

We give back 10% of our profits to support important environmental research and our community engagement activities. 

By wearing your scarf and sharing the story, you are now part of the ocean advocacy movement, educating, inspiring others around you and helping communicate and fund important environmental science.
