Mokum by Salt & Stone Knits. Named after the city’s nickname, “Mokum”, a yiddish word that means “place” or “safe haven”, this cowl is inspired by everyday life in Amsterdam. The rhythmic geometric motifs are pulled from patterns found around the city from the canals to the lively walls of Amsterdam Centraal. You don’t even need to leave your bike to catch a glimpse of the striking lines marking the speed bumps along your way. The Mokum Cowl sits cozily next to your face and is designed with double stranded colorwork to block out the unforgiving wind on that chilly bike ride home.
