Cool Design: Brooklyn Neighborhoods As Scarves

There are a many different ways to let people know you live in Brooklyn. Social media is a popular route. Some opt for tattoos. You can scream it in someone’s face when they ask you where you got your shirt. But what if you could represent the borough in a decidedly more subtle and creative way?

Co.Design brought this to our attention:

The folks at The Brooklyn Block have designed a line of scarves using coded videos and here’s how it works: The videos of each neighborhood are condensed into coded lines of color that are generated using a program. Those lines of color becomes cotton voile thread and before you know it, you have a lovely scarf.

So far, scarves inspired by Fort Greene, Red Hook, Dumbo and Dekalb Market have been designed and each will set you back $50, which isn’t so bad if you want a Brooklyn-related clothing item that screams whispers “unique.” Check out the whole line of scarves here.
