The wave of support for the Krefeld Zoo has not died down. For example, Haus der Seidenkultur (HdS) has in a record time of just under a week had a silk-satin scarf made with a motif from the ape house which can already be purchased for a price of €28,-. For each scarf – 70 cm x 70 cm – sold ten Euros will go to the reconstruction of a new home for the apes”, says Chairman of the Museum Hansgeorg Hauser. And: “In order to increase the intrinsic value of the unique collection, we have limited the edition to 500.”

The motifs originate from the Krefeld-based photographer Hella Hallmann. The advertising agency “Mediacolor” was involved in implementing the special edition. “Thanks to the extremely rapid assistant of all those involved we were able to get this support project on the rails very quickly”, says Hauser thanking a “super team” for their commitment.

The silk-satin scarf can be bought during the opening hours of the museum shop in Luisenstrasse 15, namely Wed.-Fri. from 15.00 to 18.00 hours and on Sun. from 13.00 to 17.00 hours. The Zoo Scarf is also on sale in the HdS online-shop which has recently been set up.
