KUNE–KUNE クネクネ (Japanese)–winding, meandering, twisting and turning

Exuberant texture in this cowl has been inspired by continuous exploration of partial knitting and horizontal pleating techniques. Combined together with luxuriously soft fibers that aid in enhancing normally rigid texture to provide fluidity and drape in this intricate accessory.
