According to Greek mythology, the Meliae were nymphs of the ash tree and children of Gaia (the Earth) and Ouranos (the Sky). This feminine shawlette evokes their memory with a border pattern that resembles ash seeds. Draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the neck, this light shawl will keep away the chill during a walk in the woods.
