Blowing from the deserts of Northern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, Simoom winds can reach Anatolia, bringing hot, dry, dusty weather. It plays with sand and shapes the dunes into sand waves. This V-shaped, reversible shawl represents “the Simoom wind” and its aesthetical creations; dunes and sand waves.

Simoom is worked flat with two color syncopated brioche from one edge to other. Dominant colors follow a change in order and form color blocks. These blocks skew to the left, then skew right with more repeats using brioche increases and decreases. This movement gives the shawl an “on-the-bias” and wavy look. The movements of blocks change after the middle of the shawl.
