Legend has it that the beauty of the Kalayan Minaret, in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, is so inspiring that it was the only structure spared by Genghis Khan when he razed the city in the thirteenth century. Looking at it today, it is not difficult to see why this might be true. From its base to the top of its rotunda – approximately 150ft - section upon section of intricate detailing covers the exterior. One of these beautiful sections lent itself particularly well to the mosaic knitting technique, and inspired me to design this cowl.
