The Couloir Shawl was designed by Makenzie Alvarez (@hanksandneedles) for our first pattern collection, Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona's Five Cs. Please see below for details.
Arizona has an incredible beauty all its own, breathtaking sunsets over desert landscapes, winding rivers that carve beautiful twists and turns along the landscape. This unique land of vast open space and intricacies created by nature itself inspired this shawl, which represents the never-ending horizon, surrounded by rivers and plateaus.
