Riverside is one of Toronto’s most vibrant communities, stretching a distance of ten city blocks along Queen Street East from the Don Valley Bridge to just past Degrassi Street. This urban hub is well-known for its eclectic vibe, featuring a mix of art galleries, fashion boutiques, and trendy eateries, which dot the landscape like colourful gems between acres of green space and historic buildings.
Inspired by this neighbourhood’s unique streetscape design, a border of blue bricks depicting a winding river, our Riverside Scarf is a lightweight summer accessory, ideal for wearing on relaxed weekends enjoying a picnic in the park, or wandering leisurely through an outdoor festival.
