The Monsoon Shawl was designed by Lori Harrison (@akloridesigns) for our first pattern collection, Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona's Five Cs. Please see below for details.
Lori's Pattern Inspiration:
"Growing up in Arizona, my favorite time of year has always been the monsoon season, which starts in early July. June is brutally hot and dry so monsoons are a welcome relief that bring the desert to life with the cool drenching rains and brilliant lightning shows in the late afternoons. The shawl was inspired by the dusty sky and lightning just before the rain starts."
