Artist's Description

Stylish enough to wear to conferences, subtle enough to wear to the grocery store, and sure to amaze and delight your colleagues when they realize this isn’t your typical alphabet motif, this IPA scarf wraps you in a soft, vibrant hug of stealth nerdery.

Hang out with all your favourite characters from the International Phonetic Alphabet (including all consonants, vowels, and “other” from the 2015 edition; but not the diacritics, tone markers, or suprasegmentals) in white text on an olive background. Symbols are arranged artistically, rather than by meaning, so it’s safe to wear in an exam room. But if you can come up with any inadvertent natural classes no one else has spotted yet, let us know and we’ll send you a sticker!

This semi-translucent scarf doubles as simply a large square of fabric, and can be repurposed as a nerdy patterned wall hanging, curtain, or tablecloth for your office. Or cut it up and resew it into whatever your imagination desires! (Pocket squares?)

Also available in navy/white and red/white.
