This is a previously unreleased prototype version of our Toetoe design. The special releases of this design - the cotton/tussah silk and silk/possum/merino/cotton blends - were named Falkor, but this one felt like it should be different. I was going to name it something to do with emeralds, which i love as a colour and as a gemstone and for their meaning.
Many ancient healers believed that wearing or being near an emerald would promote wellness of the heart, and they are known as a symbol of unconditional compassion, love, and acceptance in every form. Emerald and the color green in general can signify abundance and growth in all areas of life, including inside ourselves. Green is the color of our heart energy, expressing love, balance, and harmony. Apparently it even makes you more tolerant to the changes around you. All. Good. Things. And needed.
So, i think the name "Abundant Heart' Prototype is right for this one, as it is the last Aroha Textiles release to which i am giving a name since we are no longer weaving. Parenthood has been my greatest teacher of love, compassion, and acceptance. So with the unequivocal decision to put whanau first and move on from making textiles to carry babes, my hope is for wellness of the heart, and harmony and abundance in life. I wish these things for you and your loved ones as well xx
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 ❤
