Thakoon's Scarf for Somalia

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Vogue designer darling Thakoon Panichgul has created this Masai-print fleece-wool scarf, right, $250, that's he's selling on his brand-new e-commerce site. The do-good catch? 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this scarf will go to benefit the famine victims in Somalia. "This is foremost about the children [there],” Panichgul told “They can’t fend for themselves. That’s the most immediate concern for me... I’ve never pulled together a project so quickly. We need to be doing more.” []
