Known for its hardness and its mesmerizing deep black color, the Obsidian stone is said to possess healing and protective powers. It’s these unique properties that inspired Isabelle Gougenheim to create the artwork behind the scarf “Obsidian” – using the colors found on the stone and associating them with geometrical patterns.
Employing the world as her muse and a blank scarf as her canvas, French-American artist Isabelle Gougenheim blends her passion for art and an innate love for scarves into wearable masterpieces. After sketching her designs – which she explains, are “inspired by the souls of the city streets” – Gougenheim prints these urban poems on a luxurious and airy modal-silk fabric. Her designs are available in fashion boutiques and museums all over the world.
