A brilliant find during our recent trip to the New York International Gift Fair, the World Skin Colors scarves turn the demographic data from each country represented into a visual language. Every country has its own composition of skin colors, linked to its population, climate, economy, politics, and social practices, and represented in the palette of the scarf. Conceived by designer Reineke Otten, statistics about migration, population density, temperature, UV radiation, GDP, and transport are all represented here by a graphic code of shapes, colors and patterns. The scarves reveal relationships, histories, and patterns of populations, and all tell stories which you can tell as you wear them. These are just a few of the 231 countries represented.
