Art of Football Rework Vintage Scarfs into Jumpers

Upcycling is seeing a lot of attention as of recently. Firstly, it’s an excellent way for would-be designers to begin to bring their ideas into fruition. Old fabrics – be they scraps, offcuts, entire vintage pieces, or entirely out-there materials – are cheap and accessible in abundance. No materials have seen such interesting use, though, as football memorabilia: scarfs, beanies, tops, shorts – I’ve even seen football socks. 

Football scarfs are a sign of passion. Arenas of people stand with their arms spread, enlivened by pride, a scarf hanging across their body. Scarfs are versatile testaments of support. To extend their versatility, Nottingham’s Art of Football has reworked scarfs into sweaters, giving them new life while maintaining a degree of environmental resilience. 

AoF’s collection went live at the close of last month, with multiple items covering a range of teams and sizes. All the pieces are cut and sewn by hand, rendering each entirely unique. There are no duplicates. 

Browse the range over at AoF’s website.
