I have been thinking about new version of this wrap for a long time. I was searching for the best colour palette to express beauty of the nature, forest’s secrets and horses’ wildness. Finally, I decided to use natural black, deep brown, warm gold and burgundy.
Horses, for me, symbolize wildness, independance, welfare and beauty. When they run so lightly and smooth, and their manes dance in the wind, they embody the whole world’s peace and freedom.
They are one of the most thoughtful and sensitive animals in the world. They can understand us, humans, they can feel our emotions and quite all bad thoughts. They also carry well theirs offsprings, they are wonderful parents and unconditional love for children is the highest value for them. Sometimes I wish for being a horse and be able to love my children with as much wisdom, prudence and openness.
The horse in my new desing is wrapped in an aureole of ancient runes - a compass that shows the way on the intricate path of parenthood.
When I create new designs for Wild Slings, I always try to catch Nature’s magical elements and compose them as a painting. I also love appealing to ancient religious beliefs and runes, which have in my opinion, a close connection to the nature and true of life.
This new version, full of burgundy and old golden tussah looks very wild and at the same time elegant, it will make you feel about an old books’ drawing. I decided to reach for this unusual blend. The one that gently wraps the delicate skin of a newborn baby but also can make a toddler fall asleep in your arms.
