Scarfs and architecture don’t appear to have much in common at first glance, but a new program recently launched by Dita Zakova of Ecolibri, and Rhea Alexander, founder of sustainable design house DIGS, changes all of that. Dubbed Scarfitecture: A Venture in Design, Sustainability and Impact Investing, this eco-initiative brought talented Guatemalan women artisans together with seven internationally renowned architects to create a series of scarves and shawls using natural dyes and reclaimed yarn. Check out the spectacular pieces that recently made their debut in NYC, ahead!
