As you ascend into the British Columbian alpine, you can find yourself surrounded by beautiful glaciers and mountain peaks. BERGSCHRUND features stripes in herringbone stitch inspired by the crevasses and glaciers found in the mountains, creating a beautiful woven fabric. This oversized wrap will keep you warm on your adventures.
