Dear Wild Slings' Friends,
At the beginning of February is the Celtic Festival of Lights, during which the wishes we express have the best chance of coming true. From these days the sun begins to gain energy and the nights become shorter, but even darker and denser in its darkness. The symbolism of the holiday is associated with women and the performed spells are associated with love and fertility. This is the time when the thin line between the worlds becomes blurred and forces and energies that we need subconsciously can penetrate into our reality. Delving into our souls, we can hear the whisper of ancient deities, but we have to decide for ourselves whether we want to follow this mysterious voice. Do you have the courage to reach for the unknown and plunge into the fog? There are no wrong answers, no wrong paths. You only need to take the first step, and the rest will be taken care of by fate and the goddess who is caring for you.
✨Old beliefs still tempt us with their mysticism and non-obviousness, they give us a chance for love, even when the road to it is full of challenges and darkness. Love is worth any sacrifice, and we can help it by placing our hopes at this magical time of the festival of lights. The moth as a twilight animal - strongly intertwines with the message of this holiday. He is a shapeshifter totem, emerging from darkness straight into the circle of light, from the cold of the night into the warmth of fire. It is the guardian of the gate, and it happens that a visitor from other worlds hides under it guise. Due to life between the worlds, moths endow their wards with psychic abilities. For this reason, the moth is the leitmotif of our Les tenebres wraps. Today it presents itself in an intense red edition, bathed against an insanely cyan background. The combination of colors like ice and fire, passion and stubbornness. Magic and nature, mysticism and mystery. There is no wrong side of this wrap, its just endless beauty full of the mystic energy.
„Les ténèbres – La recette de l’amour fou”I woved from cotton and my favorite tussah silk, which is famous for its enveloping qualities and is soft 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 appreciate 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 load-bearing and roomy, and when carrying a child in it, we almost do not feel its weight, because the material creates elastic cushions on our shoulders that absorb the weight.
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.
