Astoria is a visually delicate yet substantial layer dotted with eyelet motifs and traveling cables reminiscent of nautical rope. Knit in Arbor, Astoria tethers one to both the open sea and the gentle beach — dense and protective against the sea spray, but also comfortable to wear while viewing the lulling current close to shore.
