Scarf+ / scarf-cape-gloves


“Scarf+” is a new style scarf, and is designed especially for SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) patients who can’t bask in the sun.

Face, neck and hands are the parts that sunlight shines on the most. So the two extremities of the Scarf+ are hand-shaped, with two layers in order to be used as gloves. In addition, a cape links with the scarf, and there are some tubes passed through by a string on the edge of the cape part. Users could pull the string to link the tubes together and conduct the cape as an over-head shelter. The shelter prevents the cape part attached our head and could keep the around head space with good ventilation.
