Diva Milano Veneziano with Silk and Hemp: Garda is one of the models of the new autumn/winter 2014 collection, made from cotton/silk/hemp blend (65% Egyptian cotton, 25% pure natural silk, 10% hemp). It is tricolor with a blue silk and brown hemp threads in the weft.
The sling is amazingly soft right from the box, it is shiny due to pure natural silk in the weft, but not thin and has a very good support due to the innovative addition of hemp . It is equally ideal for a newborn and for a toddler. Surface density is 280 g/m2 due to a thickened warp.
Only Egyptian cotton is used in production of Diva Milano wraps. This is the finest and most expensive type of cotton with extra-long staples, usually produced by luxury brands' bed linen and clothes, often mixed with silk. This cotton plant produces long, thin fibers that won't pill. Threads are light but strong, silky and soft. With proper care, baby wraps from Egyptian cotton will last several decades, which justifies a higher price tag.
