Third Eye Beanie
The “eyes” have it with this chunky, cotton hat that’s perfect for the transition between frigid Winter weather, and cool Spring. The Third Eye beanie was inspired by the tuning into one’s creative, higher self. I had the pleasure of spending a couple of days at the Visible Mobile summit with a collection of visionaries, across creative realms, whose candor, and energy reinvigorated that tuning in, for me.
