The name comes from the pattern in the linning. Very out-there kaliedescope like pattern with square- pixel shapes of green, blue, red, white colors. the grey is a perfect medium length to keep you warm, and light enough to wear easily over your shoulders. The Hood is connected with a dark silver detachable chain and an actual kaliedescope pendant, because that's how I do! There is also a zipper pocket to keep your sakes kept.
