A collaboration with Nature’s Luxury.
Kits for the Rhine cowl are available at Nature’s Luxury.


Rhine is a cable & lace cowl. Although it might look complicated, the cables and lace are placed very logic so it’s easy to memorize. You can either wear the cables in front and back or the lace section.
