The Quercus Agrifolia Cowl is named for the coast live oak that grows in the canyons of my hometown and along much of California’s coast. These majestic trees can grow to be hundreds of years old with elaborately gnarled, twisty trunks. The leaves on this cowl mimic the jagged edges of the oak tree’s leaves, while the bobbles look like acorns.
