Handwoven Organic Banana 50%, Organic Cotton 50%.
Handwoven wrap. Approximately 450-460cm long plus fringes and 70cm wide.
The world is wasting about a billion tons of banana stems each year, Löft uses some of the stems to make this amazing eco-friendly textile.
This is the 3. edition of our very popular handwoven- Shiva, named after the weaver who made the first sample. This version is softer than previously, and we have added some lovely black fringes.
Shiva Wild Forest carries all the different shades of the forest. The dark moss, the green leaves, the black soil and the grey bark.
The banana fiber is strong, soft and lightweight, almost feels like wool. When it is mixed with cotton, it creates a very supportive wrap sling with a good grip.
It is strong and perfect for bigger babies and toddlers.
The banana has a wild and uneven structure with lots of nubs, irregularities and curls that looks like pulls. This creates a raw and cool look, very different from all other fibers. No threads are endless, you can see the thread shift by the edges. Sometimes the banana structure change, and it will gain a striped structure. Every sling is different and unique.
