Crab nebula pocket square

Crab nebula pocket square


Crab nebula pocket square - the perfect gift for any dapper astronomer.

The Crab Nebula formed about a thousand years ago, and is the remnant of a supernova that was written about by Chinese astronomers in 1054. Apparently that supernova was so bright that, despite being 6500 light years away, it could be seen during the day on Earth!

Using high-resolution astronomical images, each pocket square starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the image in the centre of the square. I then get my designs custom-printed onto high-quality organic cotton in Europe. I make each item by hand (and sewing machine!) in my Parisian apartment, before carefully packaging them in a beautiful branded box so they’re ready to gift.

I also make a matching tie which you can find here, and you can buy the two together (and save a bit of money!) in this gift bundle.

All my items are beautifully finished and are 100% hand made by me in my Paris studio.
