Last month we released a very limited collection of slings. A collaboration with our friend and textile artist, Rachel Ehlin-Smith aka Mr. Blue Skye. Woven of pure raw silk and hand-dyed using locally foraged flowers and greenery in Rachel's Little Italy studio, these six labor intensive slings didn’t last long in our shop. So we thought we'd ask Rachel to bring back some of her magic...
Using nature’s blueprint, Mr. Blue Skye creates magic once again! In this second iteration, textile artist Rachel Ehlin-Smith has chosen our signature Belgian linens and dupioni silks as her canvas - hand-dying these unique slings from locally foraged flowers and greenery in her Little Italy studio and crafting subtle patterns that complement hues of indigo, berry, teal, and peach.
Separated into four colorways, with only five slings in each, every sling is individually hand-dyed and has unique flower placement resulting in the same dye tones with slight variation in dye pattern. This kaleidoscope-effect is a collector's dream, and wearable all year long. This collection includes 10 double layer linens and 10 double layer silks….
Luxurious yet laid back; these one-of-a-kind works of art weave the natural world in with your baby and you.
Enjoy the Mr. Blue Skye for Sakura Bloom lookbook here. Slings are dropping in the shop Monday, December 19, 10am PST.
