VIROHAZARD ...the tartan

Helping raise funds for NHS Scotland



Virohazard Be Aware coronavirus tartan raising funds for NHS Scotland by Steven Patrick Sim


The Virohazard tartan was created to be a wearable public health warning… which will also help raise funds to support NHS Scotland in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Influenced by the universal warning colours of yellow and black, with red representing the virus, the tartan was created to act as a vivid reminder to BE AWARE of the dangers of the coronavirus, and in doing so instil - in both wearer and observer - a high state of mindfulness, not only for each others own health, but also for the most vulnerable and at risk in our neighbourhood and communities.

The tartan was created to strongly encourage vigilance as the disease spreads, and it also aims to promote the importance of health hygiene and precautions provided by the Scottish Government and health professionals.

The designer hopes the tartan will be received positively, with 60% of proceeds from each scarf sale being donated to NHS Scotland (in a number of capacities) to help support them as they provide health care and life saving support to the Scottish public during the epidemic.
