50% linen 50% combed cotton: available from 12th June 2014
Indigo Cyano Seafoam is a 50% linen wrap. This linen is slightly thicker than some of our recent wefts such as the bronze and gamma crucis, but it is still only a medium weight making it suitable for summer use. This wrap has almost a jeans like quality to it- the indigo colour naturally continues and softens the overall colour palette so that it remains striking yet incredibly flexible. There is slightly less contrast between warp and weft (when compared with the white spindrift hemp and obsidian cotton) but this allows the pattern to softly undulate and shine out of the cloth.
Firespiral is the creation of Tamsin and Jen. We are passionate about woven wraps and had a shared dream to one day have our own designs woven. We live in an area with a wonderful weaving heritage and have been lucky enough to work with a very skillful weaving company capable of weaving something really special. Our designs are inspired by the universal patterns in nature that stray into both science and myth; the magical way in which we are connected to the world and its rhythms. We live at the edge of the west pennine moors, surrounded by stone circles, local legend and the wild beauty of the hillside, with the shadows of the cotton mills in the valley below. We feel a real sense of belonging to the ancient landscape and it is from this wonderful place that our inspiration takes shape. Some of our designs are an exploration of naturally occurring pattern, and some could be more accurately described as 'story cloths'. We both have creative backgrounds, Tamsin from an architectural viewpoint and bringing her experience of transforming wraps under the guise of violet chameleon, Jen as an artist and art psychotherapist. We want our woven wraps to be both artistically beautiful and take on deeper personal meanings for their wearers.
