J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth universe have been an inspiration for many artists throughout the world. Here is my hommage to these fascinating stories: Quendi Hat. “Quendi” was the name given by the Elves to their own kind. If the Elves are your favorite Middle-earth creatures, you will love this cabled slouchy hat.
