On May 2019 Vanamo Woven Wraps is visiting Denmark at the Babywearing festival in the city of Aalborg. We have been asked to weave a special wrap for the festival! Vanamo Kide Egholm is inspired by the beautiful nature of the island of Egholm. The weave combines the great qualities of soft organic cotton, strong and cool linen and luxurious bourette silk.
"A ferry ride of just 5 minutes will take you away from the busy, buzzing city life of Aalborg and replace it with the natural paradise of the Egholm island. The island is home to just 50 people and has a rich animal life, beautiful nature and endless possibilities for adventures for people of all ages. Egholm is truly a hidden gem of North Jutland, and its unique nature has been the inspiration for this Vanamo Kide Egholm."
The weave is a beautiful mixture of soft night blue & brisk turquoise organic cotton, green linen and silk. The combination of linen & silk makes the wrap light & airy - yet strong and supportive.
Although the linen-silk Vanamo wrap is cool and airy for the summer, the wrap can be used during all seasons. Kide weave is diagonally elastic which means that the baby wrap gives an optimum support for the baby and feels comfortable for both the wearer and baby. This medium weight wrap is great for babies of all ages as well as toddlers.
The word ”kide” means ice chrystals and the Kide pattern was inspired by the traditional hand woven Finnish linen textiles. The Kide weave is a complex mixture of twill and tabby weaves which create the unique stuctured, porous and comfortable weave. Kide pattern is designed by textile designer Katja Hynninen.
