The Exodus scarf is printed with a satellite image of the map of Europe at night. The magenta pixels mixed with the dark blue background give it a rich and vibrant color that can be matched with almost any outfit. A wearable conversation piece, it’s big enough to drape over your shoulders or wrapped around your neck. Maybe even hang it on your wall as an eye-catching, bohemian alternative.
This limited edition piece is made to illuminate the most critical humanitarian disaster of our time: the worst refugee crisis since WWII. This image taken by NASA’s public archive is overlaid in magenta by open data taken from the UNHCR and visualized by Lucify (a Finnish design studio that specializes in data visualization). The scarf depicts the flux of refugees going to Europe. Commissioned by D&F for the Transitions: Migration & Travel collection
