The Seamount Collection feature Thyasiridae, a bivalve (clam) found at the base of Anton Dohrn Seamount, at an incredible depth of 2,200m. It’s amazing to think even at that depth, we’re finding such small and intricate organisms.

One surprising fact is that if you take seamounts into account, Ben Nevis (1,345m) is not the tallest mountain in the UK! It’s actually the (much less famous!) Anton Dohrn, at 1,800m high. This impressive seamount lies west of St Kilda in the Rockall Trough.

Inspiration

We have delved into the depths of the ocean to bring you a vibrant and beautiful collection of designs inspired by the organisms which inhabit the mountains under the sea.

To do this, we were delighted to team up with scientists Professor Bhavani Narayanaswamy and Dr Natalia Serpetti from the Scottish Association for Marine Science to produce this collection.

The collaboration furthers our mission to share the hidden beauty of the ocean with our wonderful customers, empowering them to wear their values and spread the word so that these fascinating and delicate ecosystems can be preserved for generations to come.

Scientific Story

Seamounts are underwater mountains. Like mountains on land, they tower above the immediate surrounding area. In contrast to mountains on land, which can be quite barren, devoid of flora and fauna in comparison to the valleys below, seamounts are often covered in the most abundant and incredibly beautiful animals.

Our Conchas Blue and Conchas Red scarves in the Seamount Collection actually features the bivalve Thyasira species, an organism found at the base of Anton Dohrn Seamount, at an incredible depth of 2,200m. It’s amazing to think even at that depth; we’re finding such small and intricate organisms.

To be classified as a seamount, these undersea mountains must reach at least 1,000 metres in height, but some of the examples studied have reached heights of 3,000 or even 4,000 metres these depths whose exploration even now pushes the boundaries of science and technology and leads to new discoveries. Many seamounts are located in very remote places far from land, so it can take many days even to reach the sites by ship.

Positive Impact

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