Elegant Kasumi Akiha Green Stole by Chiaki Maki
Designed by a young and aspiring designer Chiaki Maki, this stole is a stunning example of the art of handweaving. The mixture of nistari, oak and mulberry silk, combined with the melodious weaving structure give this artisanal stole a unique texture and look. It floats nicely when wrapped around the shoulders and is very light and airy.
