The inspiration for this pattern stems from my background in ecology and conservation, and love of the natural world.
Wanting to create something more organic and irregular in contrast to the straight and geometric patterns of Chrysler, I looked to the natural world for the answer as I often do - and I am sure you will see much more of this as Rowan Bay grows. Sorbus is the scientific name for the genus of the rowan (or mountain-ash) trees and is beautiful at this time of year with the bright red fruits and the burnt-orange leaves.
Rowan Bay has been born from a passion for babywearing, a deep love of nature and all things wild which you will see reflected throughout Rowan Bay's designs and ethos.
Set up by Ecologist and Wildlife Gardener - Larissa, who has worn both her children over the past 10 years - Rowan Bay is the result of combining her babywearing experience, and interest in design to start a new and exciting adventure - creating luxury woven wraps, manufacturing them here in the United Kingdom.
Rowan Bay is still in it's infancy but like all good things, it takes a lot of love and time. The first line is currently being produced and will be released later this spring. For summer 2017 you can look forward to blends in linen and in the Sorbus design and by autumn you could be wrapping with a fantastic woollen blend. This is just a snippet of what is come!
