BROOKLYN - A new fashion concept is incorporating Brooklyn neighborhoods into a wearable piece of art.

Neighborhood Scarves is a project from The Brooklyn Block that transforms areas of Brooklyn into colorful scarves.

A video captures the colors and essence of areas like DUMBO or Clinton Hill. The video is then converted into a code which is subsequently translated into a pattern and printed on the scarf.

"It's a nice way to see Brooklyn," says Namrata Vansadia, co-founder of The Brooklyn Block. "It's not very direct in terms of imagery, but there are a lot of people who really love Brooklyn, and it has very distinct characteristics, and it's nice to kind of wear something that is kind of cool, and it's designed in Brooklyn and it's concerned with Brooklyn."

Each scarf costs $49.99
