THE ESCAPE SCARFS.


During the second world war, the british army created a secret organisation called MI-9, in charge of providing the pilots with escape means.
Christopher Clayton Hutton,a RAF skilled pilot, developped a set of objects for that purpose.

The escape scarf being the most iconic object of the set.

Printing military maps on silk scarfs then on rayon presented several interests: providing information to the military about their area on an easy to conceal map, hard wearing and quietly unfoldable.
We have selected 8 designs from the 50s from the best items, it’s the ecape project 01 from Bonhomme.

THE NAME
