The geometry of trees in leaf and the sway of mossy vines inspired the Spanish Moss Wrap. This minimalist interpretation of live oak trees highlights the crisp, reedy quality of natural linen. The rhythmic movement of a leaf-like pattern evolves into simple laddering to add visual interest to the fabric. This is an uncomplicated rectangular wrap that showcases the fresh and sinuous characteristics of the fiber.
