Inspired by AmsterdamIn creating the City scarf, designer duo Marjolein Peters and Mirjam Hagoort were inspired by the map of Amsterdam. A map is not simply a network of residential streets that can be traveled through. The city is characterized by activities, opportunities, and calm moments. This place, energy and pattern is reflected in the design of Barents Urban Fabric. The combination of the city's or country's geographical contours and the graphic lines of canals, boat connections and shipping routes form a true artistic ensemble. The result is a high-quality designer scarf made of voile cotton and printed with a black and white map and coloured borders. Thanks to the coloured pins you can mark your favourite locations and show the world what you stand for.
