Walters 'Te Henga' Ring Sling MTO
***This is a MTO (make to order) product - your ring sling, with black Sling Rings and your selected shoulder style, will be made for you as quickly as possible after you have ordered it. We will measure, cut, and sew it by hand, infuse it with aroha, and let you know as soon as it is ready to send.***
This design is our nod to the iconic work of NZ artist Gordon Walters. His career fused the geometric abstractions of Modernism with traditional Maori motifs to produce paintings of universal appeal whilst uniquely representing New Zealand.
Our sincere hope has been to achieve something similar with the textiles we've been designing and making for you and your families to enjoy.
We were seeking something eye catching yet timeless and think that Walters fits the bill perfectly. A cleanly modernist character with a retro feel, it references our love of fine art and bold simplicity.
The Te Henga colourway is named after one of our favourite places on earth. Also known as Bethells Beach, Te Henga is a glorious haven on Auckland’s west coast.
That sand. That black sand.
That dark rock. Home to a host of our fond memories. We love this lush teal weft and the rich black warp together. Ready for new memories to be made in. You and your little loves, together.
Te Henga is woven in 100% fine cotton. It is smooth, supple and soft from the first wash. It supports beautifully in single and multi layer carries, being blankety & mouldable for smaller babies and with enough give and grip for a wriggly toddler.
We are able to ship ring slings to New Zealand and Australia only.
Your ring sling will arrive in loom state and requires washing before use to set the weave. We feel it's better to leave the choice of washing detergent up to you in case of any sensitivities.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
