Cairo is a line of silk scarves that feature our innovative invisible magnetic closure, sleek design & one of a kind painted textiles.

Cairo is a project that started because we wanted to find a way to combine our love of painting and textiles with fashion. Our debut collection of scarves is inspired by menswear tailoring and features our innovative design with an invisible magnetic closure.

Say goodbye to bulky, knotted scarfs! Our super tiny, super strong magnetic closure is expertly positioned to allow it to be fastened multiple ways. However, because the magnet is concealed in the design, you can still fashion the scarf anyway you like.  

The 100% silk textiles in this collection take their cue from an artist’s studio. Each scarf is hand painted using silk dyes. Like a painting no two scarves in this collection are the same. Every scarf is 100% original, just like the women who wear them.

Why we're on Kickstarter. We’re doing Kickstarter to raise funds to launch Cairo’s first collection of textile base accessories. We're so excited to bring our first line to market.

To that end we are going to use the funding to:

-Construct our e-commerce website so that we can launch Cairo nationwide.

-Invest in some basic tools and supplies.

-Develop new Cairo products like handbags, and jewelry.

Thanks to everyone who's donated. We really appreciate you support.  Generosity is always fashionable!

-Megan Pflug & Katie Wright-Buckley
