Siena Shawl
Designed by Julia Kroyan

Inspired by my recent visit to beautiful Siena in Tuscany, I created this simple shawl reminiscent of the famous Piazza del Campo. The Siena Shawl has a seashell-like, trapezoidal shape with an edging that looks like the ancient houses surrounding the beautiful town square. It is light and elegant - the perfect piece to bring along on an evening stroll in town.
