wild slings les tenebres - douce nuit (linen, bamboo)
As you know, every release so far originated in my inspiration from nature, starting from the moment when it appears in my head, pouring it to paper, selecting the yarns and finally weaving the wrap.
This time, for this special occasion – Christmas Eve, I created a new version of Wild Slings the most classic and recognizable design – Les Tenebres.
Since I started creating wraps I met many extraordinary parents from all over the world, and even though lots of these relations are virtual, I am extremely touched by your commitment in the realisation of my projects. This special draw was initited by two wonderful, remarkable Women and Mothers – Iveta and Tereza.
Christmas is a very special time of the year full of magic, warm wishes and very emotional. Time for our loved ones, families and especialy children. Iveta has already two wonderful kids, one of them has just been born and Tereza is still waiting for her second baby. They would love something special for them and I was pleased to make their dream come true. We have chosen everythig together: desing, colours, blend and that is how “Les Tenerbres – Douce Nuit” has appeared to the world.
Ladies chose that incredible amethyst shade of violet which symbolizes harmony and I proposed this unique and noble blend, very soft, ideal for newborns and toddlers as well.
The desing with moths you know very well. Tiny threads are hanging from the figure with beads of runes – originated in the Germanic traditions, oldest European alphabet that was given to men, according to legends, by Odin himself. “Run” means secret, and the relationship between the ones I used is not accidental. Odala is at the center of the design. It is a powerful rune that symbolizes everything we call home. Family, warmth, harmony, drawing from the wisdom of the ancestors, history of the place we are at. Odala is unity based on safety. Directly behind comes Algiz – the most powerful rune of protection. It translates to a female elk, that was believed to be a magical animal. The shape of Algiz resembles the elk’s antlers. Elk is an animal seemingly ponderous, however it will do anything to protect its offspring and, to ensure their safety, will never withdraw from a fight. At the sides, I have placed two more runes, without which the message of the design would be incomplete – Berkano and Mannaz. Berkano is the women’s strength and energy. Quintessence of what is most important for the child’s wellbeing. The inseparable element of this wonderful and most beautiful bond. Tender gaze, warmth of hands, trust and love. The final rune, Mannaz means man. It focuses on his plans, dreams, understanding for weakness and strength, respect for others. Mannaz represents what every parent would like to pass on to their child, so it could grow to become a wise and good person.
It is very limited draw, I prepared only a few wraps. I hope they will be wonderful gift and very special amulet for incoming 2020 year.
