Ai is a project resulting from an ongoing collaboration

between Oliver Prestele, designer, artist and cook,

and Nella Rieken, a graphic designer and VJ, mainly

concerned with historical print techniques and analogue

copying processes.


The scarves are hand-dyed in small editions of 20

pieces per pattern in their own studio in Berlin. All further

production steps are also executed in Berlin to ensure the

high quality of the product.


The scarves are dyed and rinsed eight times with natural

indigo from Japan, ensuring long permanency of the

color and the highest spectrum of indigo blues.

Each piece is furnished with a hand-engraved brass label

and comes in a beautifully embossed box.


The format of the scarves was chosen corresponding to the

golden ratio. It is approximately 90 x 150 cm and thus large

enough to wrap around one‘s body or use it as a multi-purpose

cloth. The fabric is very lightweight yet durable cotton

imported from the U.K.
