Dear Wild Slings' Friends,
when I was weaving this beautiful wrap which I am presenting to you today, I was thinking about the incredible power of nature, which is the sea. It has always been close to me, I respect and adore every part of nature, but for some time I have been facing sea in my dreams, so I decided to transfer my dreams to this project.
The sea perfectly reflects the duality of nature, it seems beautiful, tame and smooth, an ideal place for lounging in the sun, offering endless possibilities for water games. However, you always have to be careful not to see for yourself how cruel the sea can be. How strong and unpredictable it is. Sometimes in my dreams there appear immeasurable depths full of secrets, the knowledge of which is associated with an extraordinary adventure, but also a danger. My subconscious tells me then that I will be facing a force that can carry away kilometers of land, and which will not hold back anything. However, as it usually happens in dreams, I have the unwavering certainty that I must go against the adventure. It is probably in my dreams, during my sea voyages, that my love for that blue, unbridled strength and beauty, which is the sea, was born in me. Although calm, soothing and well known to us by the shore, many kilometers away, nature gives free rein to its imagination. This is where the wind blows and the foamed water and the salt penetrates everything, down to the bones. Therefore, when I think about sea stories, I never think of summer beach tales about love, sand and cotton candy, but absorbing stories about the struggle with the element, in which man is just a game of fate.
I love life and all the color of emotions it gives me. From crazy adventures to peace of mind and joy in my heart when I wake up in the morning and see the smiling faces of my loved ones. I try to use each day, squeeze as much good out of it as possible. This courage in reaching for happiness is one of the features I cannot imagine my life without. And additionally ... it comes in handy during my night sea expeditions
Each wrap adorned with my black mysterious moths is a small piece of art. The blue shade of this wrap is mesmerizing, perfect in every way. I wove it from cotton and my favorite tussah silk, which creates a beautiful black and white mosaic full of numbs. As you well know, tussah is famous for its enveloping properties, it is delicate and strong at the same time. Thanks to this mixture, the wrap works perfectly, tightens well and looks phenomenal all the time. This wrap combines everything that I value in my projects - exceptional softness, flexibility and unique design. It is perfect both for the first reeling of a newborn and for carrying older children - it is insanely capacious, which you have to check yourself.
I weave Wild Slings wraps on my own loom which guarantees them the highest quality and attention to every detail. Every wrap is also steam cleaned before being sent.
