Oscha Okinami Midnight

Oscha Okinami Midnight

Has Katsusika Hokusai ever thought that his engraving “Big wave in Kanagava” would inspire brand Oscha after 200 years? Of course not. Thereby it’s interesting to follow, how a big wave wraps around the Earth, travelling from Japanese to British Isles, in order to come down and swish, not as foam, but as cloth.

We are presenting the fourth monochrome Okinami by Oscha — Midnight.

Okinami Midnight is a wrap weaved from SeaCell (blend of sea weed and viscose tencel), silk and bio-cotton. It goes without saying, one cannot miss a unique yarn with sea weeds of Island’s fjords when weaving a wrap on British Isles with the pattern of Japanese waves. It’s impossible how to miss a joy of babywearing in Okinami Midnight.

Okinami Midnight is a thin, but heavy wrap — 358 gr/m2. It is very pliable, it can be rolled into a thin binder. Smooth cloth lovely lies down on shoulders, wrapping into silky prison, distributing the weight. Okinami Midnight is a bit slippery when wrapping, but after wash it should be more packless and add some bounce. Now we may say that Oscha made a great present to those who love silky wraps, fall in love with poetry and symbolic, fond of graphic patterns and is given to minimal colors.

This wrap will fit to babies from 3 months to 4 y.o. toddlers — despite the mentioned density this wrap is amazingly flexible and great support.

SeaCell gives to the wrap a sensual silkiness. It is namely that silkiness, which you are waiting from the silk but never actually receive (in the world of wraps it may be explained as wrong washing, second weft, not enough thick yarn etc). So Okinami is a heart of silk delight, dressed with a touch of velvet. Cool cloth is flowing between the fingers as a waterfall, move as a brook on the shoulders, cosy splashes under the babie’s cheek.

Oscha Zorro Midnight

Zorro Midnight is a prototype of a new Oscha’s wrap with foxes. Blend is experimental: cotton with silk and alpaca. As a result we may see one of the masterpieces in wrap-art for toddlers, with excellent parameter’s balance blend-pattern-color-density for this challenge. How is it displayed in test-drive?

Once upon a time, in 2011, two children and one babywearing epoch ago, I had a good fortune to see an astonishing wrap with wool — Roses Noel by Oscha

The next wrap of dream — Braid Rosehip. Lovely quiet color and excellent wrapping features, real icon! Alas, scratchy comparing to delicate cashmeres, just coming into fashion in 2012.

However, Oscha is a brand which you cannot ever be tired of. Permanent experiment, permanent search, permanent challenge to wrap-weekdays’ boredom. I dreamed to test a new pattern Zorro from the moment of its appearance. Dynamic design, resembling to Raja pattern, promised a good grip and good pliability at the same time. It worked out the way it did. Fine wavy pattern breaks the sheet of wrap to many segments and gives direction, on which the wrap must be tighten – it’s a real pleasure. So, sling in Zorro pattern is easy to regulate and it is not weakening if you made a mistake when wrapped. It‘s paradoxial and very good combination.
