Description

Ancients of Gondor Ithildin

Ancients of Gonder Ithildin: “Flowing ecru trees shine through a black background on this gorgeous all cotton wrap. Named for the substance made from Mithril, Ithildin is used to create magical inscriptions which are only revealed when the correct incantation is said in the reflected light of the Moon and stars.

The trees in this pattern each represent part of the lineage of White Trees. The original White Tree was much beloved by the Elves. It emanated silver light, and it is said the Moon was formed from its last silver flower. Each tree thereafter is seen to symbolise divine qualities of goodness, wisdom and purity.
On this wrap we find Celeborn – the last to grow in the original dwelling place of the Elves, Nimloth – a sapling of Celeborn that was planted in the land of Númenor, and finally a sapling of Nimloth that became the first of the line in Middle-Earth: the White Tree of Gondor.

Organic combed cotton is strong, cushy and breathable: perfect for all ages. 100% organic combed cotton, 295gsm.”

Middle Earth Collection

“We are proud to present The Middle-Earth Collection, the official collection of baby wraps and ring slings inspired by the world of J.R.R Tolkien.
This collection is the result of a long-held desire here at Oscha to create a collection inspired by the world set out in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Drawing inspiration from the rich tales in the works of Tolkien, and with exclusive rights from Middle-earth Enterprises, we have created a series of gorgeous designs steeped in a mythology that has enthralled generations of children and adults.”

Ancients of Gondor

Ancients of Gondor was the first pattern teased, or better said, was the pattern that was used to tease the public about the upcoming Lord of the Rings/Middle Earth Collection.

From Oscha’s blog:
“Our first Middle-earth design, Ancients of Gondor, is inspired by the lineage of White Trees. The original White Tree was much beloved by the Elves. Emanating silver light, it is said the Moon was formed from its last silver flower. Each tree thereafter is seen to symbolise divine qualities of goodness, wisdom and purity.

These gorgeously intricate trees are representative of a line starting with Celeborn – the last White Tree to grow in the original dwelling place of the Elves, leading to Nimloth – a sapling of Celeborn that was planted in the land of Númenor, and finally to a sapling of Nimloth that became the first of the line to be found in Middle Earth – the White Tree of Gondor.”

Ithildin

“Named for the substance made from Mithril, Ithildin is used to create magical inscriptions which are only revealed when the correct incantation is said in the reflected light of the Moon and stars.”

Woven with black and silver, Ithildin is a colourway very suitable to the silvery White Trees.

A substance devised by the Noldor Elves for special outdoor inscriptions. It was derived from the rare metal mithril. Ithildin means moon-star, for it gleamed in response to starlight and moonlight, but only when touched by those speaking the right incantation. The inscriptions on the Doors of Durin were wrought of ithildin. Source: Wikipedia.
