The Crossover Cowl // A no-fuss snap button scarf 



New for this year // We are launching the Waterproof Cowl. Designed for the outdoors, whether you are camping in the outback or snowboarding in Jackson Hole, The Waterproof cowl is designed to keep you dry but protected.     


Upgraded design  // All cowls are now made with three distinct layers that give it form. Combined, the fabrics work to constantly regulate the body's temperature. These subtle additions make the cowls more durable & long-lasting.

  •  Wool - a breathable fabric that dissipates heat and is anti-microbial. It is one of the few natural fabrics that keep you warm when it gets wet. Sourced from the best mills in Italy and Japan
  •  Weft - a liner that provides structure, making the cowl wrinkle resistant. This makes it easier to maintain. Hardly need to clean
  •  Polar Fleece - a fabric that retains heat but resists moisture.  

About Us // Hi, my name is George. In 2017 I discovered mopeds and wanted to build one for myself. Through that process, I found my passion for making and I realized that when you get passionate about something in life, you need the right tools and accessories to achieve your goals, for me, it was minimizing the inconvenience of a scarf  - thus The Crossover Cowl was born. 



Inspiration 

The Crossover Cowl was informed by origami patterns. I admired how the folds of patterns retained their shape. I used these folds as inspiration for re-designing the scarf.



Brooklyn Born. Brooklyn Made

We draw inspiration from the evolving tapestry of Brooklyn where ideas and people move freely. We hire local skilled workers to help stave off gentrification and meet with local community groups to educate kids on how to pursue their passions.



Designed to be worn in city streets or in the outback. 

The Crossover Cowl is incredibly adaptable. It can be worn over a coat or tucked inside a jacket. It provides 360 neck protection without feeling restrictive and utilizes a snap button design that eliminates the need for wrapping.


A design like no other.  We have thought about the transitions that people make from the indoors to the outdoors and redesigned the scarf to adapt to the need of commuters, travelers and adventurers. 



Tight seal with no gaps 

360 protection where it matters most, the front of the chest and the back of the neck.



Two styles, for any occasion 

 The Crossover Cowl is designed to be worn over a coat or tucked inside a jacket.



Adjustable Snaps 

Tighten and loosen in one motion, pull out to breath



No More Wrapping 

The Crossover Cowl completely protects your neck, without the need to pull it over your head. 



Itch Free Lining 

 We use a high-grade polar fleece that feels cozier. It's durable and won’t irritate your skin.   For guys that means no more peach-fuss stuck in your beard and for ladies no more static-shocked hair.



V-Shape Fold

The Crossover Cowl is designed to maximize protection of the chest, while seamlessly complementing the cut lines of a blazer. It will fill the gaps where traditional fail.



Designed to Travel  

The last thing you need is a scarf that takes up space. That’s why we designed our cowls to be tucked into the sleeve of a jacket or a side pocket of a bag when not being worn.



Colors 

We offer two types of cowls.  Our Everyday Cowls are made from herringbone wool, and our Waterproof Cowls are made from a water-resistant lightweight poly woven fabric with a matte finish.   Each is wind resistant, highly durable and lightweight. 



Now that we have crossed $20K we are unlocking a limited edition business cardholders.

Risks and challenges

Supply Chain Risk:
We're incredibly proud of our supply chain, and are confident that we can fulfill our commitment of guaranteed Christmas 2019 deliveries. But sometimes things happen, such as fabric delays due to the yarn being stuck in customs, etc. We've added buffer time for such events, but sometimes it's not enough. If anything should arrive late we will get through it together.

We're deeply committed to and excited about delivering a high-quality product, on time, that we know you'll enjoy for a long time to come.

We have thought through the best and worst, case scenarios to offer backers the most confident delivery schedule possible.

Our commitment:
To communicate clearly and with full transparency every step of the way. We ensure you’ll be the first to know if any anticipated delays, changes to the product lineup, or other unforeseeable issues arise. Our products are made with integrity and for us, that means doing it right - no shortcuts.
