The Tucson Cowl was designed by Ashleigh Wempe (@AshleighWempe) for our first pattern collection, Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona's Five Cs. Please see below for details.
Ashleigh's Pattern Inspiration:
"Many are surprised to hear that Tucson, Arizona has a vibrant cattle industry! Growing up I loved the bandanas that cowgirls and cowboys wore around their necks when herding cattle or practicing for the rodeo. This unique cowl features a paisley motif and fringe inspired by the classic bandana."
