Product description

“There was something about this Tent color that inspired the stitch pattern and leaf-like motif on the crown. This green is so organic to me – it reminds me of moss and the color of leaves right before turning golden yellow in the Fall. The twisted stitches make the motif really pop and give the fabric a nice stretchiness.” – Michele Wang
