The Kettle Valley Railway was built in the early 1900s to service the growing mining demands of the Interior of British Columbia. After the final section was abandoned in 1989, much of the route was converted to a multi-use recreational trail, including the awe-inspiring trestles and tunnels of Myra Canyon.
Kettle Valley is a textured, top down, triangular shawl inspired by the Kettle Valley Railway and the beautiful and historic Myra Canyon.
