Graviky Labs collaborated with designer Kelly Gijsen on a uniquely patterned scarf range that offers a message on air quality and the environment.

Graviky Labs is an Indian start-up by MIT Media Lab graduates that developed a device called 'Kaalink' that makes it possible for air pollution particulate to be captured and turned into AIR-INK—an ink made from carbon emissions. This ink has been previously used for applications involving paint and pens, but the team created an ink that could be printed onto textiles.

The scarves are made with 100% organic cotton and naturally dyed. Each scarf contains about the same amount of ink that's released with about two and a half hours of diesel vehicle pollution.
