Symphony Winter Daydream 

Wrap Collection 

 

What is the attraction of Winter Daydreams? Certainly its performance parameters. The wrap is extremely soft, airy and very fluffy. I used in a FWCC (front wrap cross carry) and it is very moldable and very cushy on the shoulders. Tightening is easy though I would say that this wrap does not provide a great grip as some other wraps. But it isn’t slippery at all. The wrap was really supportive even in the single layer for my two years toddler as I didn’t spread the layers. The knot is quite bulky, it takes a certain skill to make it double.

Symphony Winter Daydream 

Twice Loved and Modern (Brittany Snyders)

 

This wrap is so unique, unlike any other cotton I have tried so far.  Actually I would have guessed it wasn't cotton if I didn't know better.  The feel and wrapping qualities are most similar to a tussah silk blend I had a bit ago, Artipoppe Tweed Beach.  It has the amazing spongy cush of tussah silk which I have never experienced from cotton before.  It feels thicker while wrapping than you would expect considering the weight but it's not beastly and dense as it has the lightness of tussah silk.  There is quite a bit of texture and it holds very nicely but I didn't find it sticks to itself too much.

I was pleased to test new Polotno wrap!

 

We got used to jacquard wraps that have clear regular pattern. This Polotno does not look like this. It has an unusual design. Though the colors have nothing to do with the seawater, it reminds me of an ocean. The waves break forth and go back. Again and again. If a surrealist painter decided to paint an ocean, it would probably look like this. The colors get mixed creating an effect of shining metal. And you are absolutely fascinated by its sparkles and glow…

Alenka in Grapefruit  

Babywearing addicts (Zuzana Heverova)

 

When I learnt I was picked by Polotno to test this beauty I was super excited. I have never owned Polotno before but I loved the designs and have been checking their fb page and website regularly. The brand is quite unknown in Slovakia. However around the time I found out I would be testing Alenka, a friend of mine was also lucky enough to buy one of their beauties. So we were both impatiently waiting for the wraps.

Wind Crimson

Ewelina Brzezinska

 

I will start off by saying that I am a newbie, and my adventure with baby wraps started in the Spring of 2014. I have a tiny stash of wraps at home, and this is my 3rd or 4th tester. The Polotno I hosted is a size 6, named Crimson Wind made of 100% Pima Cotton.
Ohhh Boy, am I glad this wrap visited me. 
The color is simply stunning. While the combination of pink and orange is unusual, in real life it is beautiful. Depending on the light, it looks more orange or pink, and in a dim light it even seemed to look purple.

Eagles Vintage Maui

Lovebabywearing (Justyna Skulska)

 

Polotno Studio is new brand from Russia that has quite decisively entered into the babywearing world and market; with their own character and new ideas what happens less and less these days. 

I am so glad I have had an opportunity to test and photoshoot two of their wraps, because they are searching and focusing on the details of pattern that shows their love of fabric. Which shows, definitely.

Tripolye Red

Kendong-kendong (Lisha Zulkepli)

 

Peruvian pima cotton is silky soft, extremely durable, and highly resistant to pilling. And unlike other fibers, pima cotton does not cause allergies, making it an excellent choice for people with skin sensitivities. It is hand-harvested in Peru so it is free from scratchy impurities. And because it is more absorbent and is naturally a more brilliant white than normal cotton, it soaks up the dyes more magnificently.

Eagles Baikal

Wrap you in love (Hedwych Veeman)

 

Polotno-studio is a machine woven wrap company from Russia. They like to experiment with different kinds of cotton. They started with Pima and Supima cotton and are planning to use Egyptian and Sea Island cottons in the future. One of the first designs is called ‘Eagles’ and it’s an elegant pattern, which reminds me a little bit of the style of Diva Milano.
This colourway ‘Baikal’ is a beautiful grad with a vanilla colour on one side and light blue at the other rail. It’s a grad with stripes, just like you might have seen from Oscha.
