Matrix Guyot previewed on Facebook on 3 August 2017 as part of the Coastal Collection: “Woven on a stunning summertime grad these wraps bring some fresh tones to your stash this season.” It was released the following day 4 August 2017 during the mini-Secret Stash Friday.
“Soft & strong, with a little cush, a gorgeous cottolin warp features a fresh fade of greens while a grass green cotton weft showcases the changing textures of this stunning pattern. Perfect for all ages, this wrap has all the strength of linen while maintaining the malleability of the cotton yarns for a versatile wrap with a hint of shimmer.”
“Refreshing, enlivening and calming: the Oscha Coastal Collection evokes qualities of being by the ocean. From deep blues and sandy shores to sunsets over rippling waves and turquoise lagoons, this range of baby carriers and lovingly woven My Oscha items will remind you of the seaside all year round.”
This Collection was first introduced in 2015. It launched with Koi Bay and Alto Haze and now continues with Façade Bay. The collection is based on the many different tones of blue and green found along the coast, ranging from turquoise and teal to deep blues and purples.
First released as ‘Matrix Satori’, this wasn’t regarded as a very popular pattern, until the release of preorder wrap Matrix Adara (black weft on a blue-purple warp). It was suggested that the popularity of Matrix was then increased by the popularity of striped handwoven wraps. Whatever the reason, Matrix has since become a popular pattern, both as regular releases and part of preorders.
Inspired by the movie ‘The Matrix‘ where green binary code flows vertically across a black computer screen, the release of Matrix Satori was accompanied by a fun photoshoot that featured clothes and accessories (sunglasses!) reminiscent of the movie.
