Timeless, classical form, ears perfectly covered, comfort and a little cuteness! Minimalism blends with practicality and texture, while addition of mohair thread makes this hat amazingly soft and fluffy.

Trivia fact: the hat’s name comes from charming shells of sea snail Trivia. Their shape reminds me of the stitch pattern used in this design!
