A Slice of Life Scarves

As a microscopist you are often are stunned by the beauty of what's on your microscope slide. I remember as a grad student showing this technician (a former doctor from China) a slide where cells were stained by immunofluorescence against microtubules. After peering into the microscope he turned to me and said, "there must be a God". Yes quite beautiful stuff.

So it came as no surprise when a good friend of mine sent me a link to A Slice of Life Scarves. This company uses motifs from the life sciences as patterns for their scarves and ties. Besides Golgi scarves (left) and centriole ties, they even have sarcomere ties (for those power meetings!)
