Are you a fan of Steampunk? Then Natibaby's Gears is the perfect wrap for you. Interlocking gears churn across the length of this wrap evoking clashing images of anachronistic machines and steam engines.
This is a jacquard weave woven in navy and natural colored tussah threads. The Gears and Cogs pattern are often confused (I know I have done so myself). Cogs have more gears across the body of the wrap. Gears do not have as many gears across the body of the wrap.
These wraps are our leftovers from the pre-order.
Tussah is often called wild or uncultivated silk. As opposed to cultivated silk, tussah silk is gathered from wild or semi-wild silk worms. The silk filaments are collected from the worm's cocoon after the moth has hatched. There are many varieties and shades of wild silk. As the caterpillars eat a variety of vegetation, the silk can be anywhere from natural to beige to brownish toned. Tussah silks are wildcrafted and thus may be considered "organically raised." They are naturally tan, and generally are stronger and more resilient than cultivated "white" silks.
