Chile Pepper Duffel
Interweave SKU: EP3353
This duffel is made up of simple circular motifs that are joined in such a way that the edges form a dimensional surface. The final effect is similar to the cathedral window quilt block. The duffel is sturdy enough for a day hike, in the country or in town. (Interweave)
