Wingu | cloud in Swahili
For days when the clouds roll in from the sea, bringing with them cooler, damper air and the need for something warmer to envelop yourself in. Wingu is a shallow crescent shawl that brings out the best in Mabel and Ivy Coast: the magical combination of soft warm wool and a delightful softness from the cotton.
Easy to wear and incredibly versatile, this shallow, elongated crescent shape will slot right into your early autumn wardrobe.
Wingu is the sister shawl to Pwani (meaning coast in Swahili).
