A collab between my boyfriend Craig and myself. He came up with the idea for a mempo inspired scarf and sketched out some design ideas, which I later re interpreted and then silkscreened onto these fleece scarves! A friend was kind enough to model it for me.



The Japanese Mempo is a traditional armoured face mask found on a Samurai Kabuto helmet. These fearsome masks not only protected their faces, but were used to intimidate foes on the battlefield. Interesting stuff!
