Homebound

$5.00 USD

Homebound is a delightful hat with intertwined cables that travel up the hat, like a path through the forest on your way back home after a chilly adventure. We often walk in the river valley here in Edmonton, where the path consistently slopes in various directions, similar to the cables of this intriguing toque.
