Devenish Tam

 

$4.00

As I was designing this I was reminded of the celtic carvings on the stones of tiny Devenish Island in Northern Ireland, with the blue of Lough Erne glistening in the background.
This stylish tam o’shanter is the perfect marriage of fashion and function, especially when paired with the matching Devenish tunic.
