Architecture-inspired classic cardigan



Inspired by the striated wood cladding on the terraces of the Sokol Blosser Winery tasting room just an hour from the Oregon Coast, the Stria Cardigan celebrates the architectural beauty of clean lines. The angled striae create flattering visuals at the front of the body; keeping the project interesting without being fussy. The timeless shape and style, combined with stunning modern architectural lines bring 1940’s casual into the 21st century.

Worn with jeans, capris, a cotton dress or your favorite a-line skirt, the Stria Cardigan is the ideal classic cardi.

Stria is knit top-down, seamless, with raglan construction and a slipped-stitch design mirrored diagonally down the front panels. It is designed with minimal ease.
