Attention knit-lovers! Front Row Society is trying something fresh again and it’s going to be like wow! This time, we’re adding a new new member to the FRS family: Woven Scarves! One of the most important things about this competition is that it is being held on Facebook. So to take part, you need a Facebook account. But you've got that – right?

For this very special, Facebook-exclusive FRS challenge we will be producing the scarves on a Jacquard loom, rather than printing as we usually do, so we want you to take the concepts made possible by this advance in technology and run with them. But we are also imposing some order on the possibilities! We are running a very strict four-colour palette, meaning that you can use three of the colours horizontally and one color vertically; just consider how weaving works if you are having trouble picturing it. 

So, create as simply or as intricately as you like; as powerfully or subtly as you want. As long as you know your design will shine, use the limits to challenge yourself!

This special competition is for woven scarves. As always, don't forget that your print might need to be adjusted to fit the appropriate template. All templates are marked with design specifications to help you get your design just right. Please note that all FRS templates may differ slightly from final manufacturing specifications, so make sure your print is versatile and flexible enough for production.

What can you win?

Each winner receives a one-off immediate prize of 200€. plus one of their products when it arrives in stock. But that is not all - each & every time we sell 500 pieces of your design, you will receive an additional €200. This means that FRS can continue to embody the spirit of fashion democracy, rewarding our top designs again...and again...and again! We will also conduct an interview with the winner, publicizing their design across the fashion community in Berlin and worldwide.
