Have you ever seen a lunar eclipse? Night becomes more dark and murky than usual.
In ancient cultures, people believed the moon was swallowed by an animal, a dragon or a demon and they tried to chase it away by throwing stones and curses at it. Mothers would like to protect their babies and hid them agains disapearing moonlight which always heralded some misery.
The absence of the moon was used by witches for black magic. People did not try to cure any diseases at that time, because it was believed that they could return very quickly.
The lunar eclipse was a portnent of some imminent doom.
Today, we can just sit down and observe it with admiration, delight and extasy. One of the most spectacular phenomenon in the world. Beautiful and peacfull.
Most people think the solar eclipse is more interesting, spectacular and rare, but in fact during the whole year we can observe from two to five solar eclipses and only one to three moon eclipses.
The next one will be in January, I am sure it is the best moment to to show you this spectacular beauty of glittering silver and velvet blackness.
I reached for my most mystical drawing and made sure that "Les ténèbres- Éclipse lunaire" was a magical and one of a kind wrap.
Silver moths rest on the black, twinkling with a mysterious glare - an amazing combination of two yarns, delicate, noble, organic cotton with rexor – shiny, metallized yarn in an environment-friendly viscose variant. It is amazingly soft. It is without doubt one of the softest wraps I ever created. There is nothing to it from the roughness of shiny fabrics. Perfectly smooth, spectacular.
The wraps are woven on our own loom which guarantees their exceptional quality. They are available Today for a first and last time and was never shown earlier...
This beautiful silver moths wrap is made from reinforced threads and will, without any difficulty, carry also a toddler. At the same time, because of its remarkable softness, it will be ideal for a newbie.
Tenebres - Eclipse lunaire
I also take pride in saying that this is a vegan wrap.
As all my wraps it is steam-disinfected and therefore safe for your child straight from the box* (The final fibre shaping is reached in the effect of the first wash and that is what I always recommend).
Éclipse solaire is 275 gsm weaved from:
-88% organic Pima cotton
-12% soft, shinning and environment-friendly rexor viscose
As always I created them in a very limited quantity and in first quality only, all from OEKO-Tex 100 certified yarn
