Origami Scarves Let You Fold Your Own Neckwear for the Day
September 14th, 2012
Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, has been around for centuries. I’ve always found it pretty cool, considering how you can turn a sheet of paper into absolutely anything you want to with a few folds and tucks here and there. So how awesome is it that Japanese retailer Monomatopee has managed to incorporate this technique into clothing? Specifically, into scarfs?
The scarf is made from a special, flat fabric that feels like paper, so it folds like paper. But it’s wearable, ultra-chic, and super stylish–if you have the personality to pull it off, that is. It’s pretty awesome because it’s basically one of those convertible articles of clothing that’ll let you wear it in a hundred different ways, depending on your creativity.
The scarves are available online from Monomatopee for ¥11,500 (~$150 USD).
