Introducing Cairo, a New Design Duo

Silk Scarves Are Just the Tip of the Sphinx

cairo silk scarves!

Your feather extensions flew the coop the day before braised pork belly jumped the shark (which happened right around the time you put your food truck up on blocks).

As a beta-dopter, you should know about Cairo right now. Technically, the new project from artist Megan Pflug and textile designer Katie Wright-Buckley hasn’t launched yet, but you can use Kickstarter for access before the crowds.

Menswear-inspired silk scarves, painted as pretty little works of art, make up the foundation of their collection. Flippy in summer and ascot-ready come winter, each scarf is weighted with a hidden rare earth magnet, so it stays put without being tied.

Bonuses for early supporters include “you look fantastic” hieroglyphic cartouche stickers; handmade, charcoal-colored clay earrings; and special J. Penry prints. Handbags, jewelry, and artist-and-designer collaborations are waiting in the wings.

But you probably already knew that.

Available through August 11 online at kickstarter.com, $150. For more information, go to cairocairo.com.
