Some of my favorite memories are those spent wandering the woods to gather kindling. Time with friends and loved ones around a campfire is one of the nicest ways to spend an evening – stories and spiked hot chocolate are made so much better around a fire, don’t you think? The lattice and seed panels of the Kindling cowl remind me of layered bundles of twigs and the embers that dance and crackle around them.
