The patterns and colours found in traditional Indian saris have captured my attention for many years and their exquisite beauty has provided much design inspiration. The Monsoon Stole is a mixture of interesting lacy style stitches, arranged in uneven stripes, that allow the light to pass through and define patterns.
Choose to make your wrap in vibrant colours, or more subtle tones - it’s up to you!
