Begg & Co’s cashmere scarves for Maggie’s

The patterns are inspired by the charity’s starchitect-designed centres

Scottish scarf label Begg & Co has created a limited-edition collection in aid of Maggie’s, a charity that supports people suffering from cancer at starchitect-designed centres in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals across the UK.


Three of the four geometric designs draw on the landscape and architecture of Maggie’s 18 centres. A labyrinthine pattern (pictured) echoes a Chartres Cathedral-inspired garden at the Frank Gehry-designed Maggie’s in Dundee (the labyrinth illustrating that in life you have to trust you’ll find a route through), while white and yellow, and white and blue ovals echo the pebble-like Aberdeen centre by design practice Snøhetta.


All profits from the scarves, which are woven from gossamer-cashmere yarn, will be donated to the charity, which also plans to use them in workshops for sufferers who have lost their hair.
