European Wrap

5.00

The European Wrap is a whimsical convertible piece inspired by my friend Emily Kate & her adventures abroad in Rome, Italy. Emily Kate is strong, kind, & curious - this wrap was created to complement her spirit & be a versatile companion on her travels. It can be worn several different ways, my favorite of which is shown in these photos. As Emily Kate has with hers, I'm sure you'll find your own favorite way!
