Designed by Kristin Omdahl exclusively for Bijou Basin Ranch. Inspired by the Gladiolus, whose rich history spans from Africa through the Mediterranean. The latin word means sword and symbolizes strength and moral integrity. The flower represents infatuation and suggests that when received will pierce the giver's heart with passion. I suggest this as a cure to the "Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater" since the hugs and kisses (XOXO) branded into the crown of the hat, would be detected by a knitter, but could possibly go undetected by an unassuming love interest. By branding the wristlets with the same hugs and kisses (XOXO) perhaps it can unite you together with love.
