Antheia cowl was born with the fall foliage in mind. The scalloped edges and overlapping leaf design gives the cowl an organic feel.

Antheia was one of the charites, or graces, of Greek mythology and the Goddess of vegetation, lowlands, marshlands, gardens, blossoms, the budding earth, and human love.
