This compelling design has its origins in a 1926 hand colorized photo of an embroidered Armenian cap which I acquired many years ago. It features the ancient “ramshorn” motif alternating with stars and Xs and its half drop motif placement creates a vibrant energy with bands of color that mimic traditional weaving. The bold black, terra cotta and olive green colorway is striking and dramatic.
