Product Description


Our most popular silk chiffon scarf is a wonderful synthesis of math and art. It features a Matisse woodcut-like design based on a geometric arrangement that builds a single square out of thirteen smaller squares of different sizes, rotations, and mirrorings. The squares are then threaded into a sequence of diagonal lines that are smoothed to produce a curve from one corner of the scarf to the opposite corner. This scarf is named for the number 13 and the mathematician Sierpinski, who created a famous fractal pattern called a carpet, to which this scarf pattern is related. As is the case with all our scarfs, the foreground and the background have the same shape: you can’t tell them apart.
