  • Alluvium - Shawl

    The Alluvium Shawl was inspired by the idea of the seashore as the place where two worlds meet. It uses brioche increases and decreases to mirror the crashing ocean waves, then has the branched delta in brioche on a two-colour garter stitch background.

    It's generous size and asymmetrical triangular shape make Alluvium to an extra-comfy and super wearable shawl.
