Named after the Sumerian goddess of grain and harvest, and inspired by memories of childhood vacations spent exploring sun-dappled paths and winding streams through seemingly endless fields, this cowl reflects the intricacy of nature in its distinctive and engaging textured pattern, and adds a versatile, fun-to-wear piece to any wardrobe.
