Girasol Amitola

There is still shortage of cotton in Guatemala due to the storm Agatha which occurred in May this year. A lot of processes are delayed. Due to these reasons the first batch of Exclusive Girasol Amitola will be not very big.

One more exclusive Girasol we are expecting in September 2010 - Girasol Folia! Designed by the same babywearing mother who designed our exclusives Girasol Lilia and Girasol Betula. It's not a surprise in this case that Girasol Folia will be in the same style as our Girasol Betual, but with more colors. :)

Folia comes from the Latin "folium", which means "leaf". Girasol Folia was inspired by the beautiful fall, with it's amazing colors - brown, red, orange, yellow, green.

On the store site you can read some words from the desinger herself. She tells about her inspiration for our Girasol Folia.

Girasol Drop

Girasol Drop is the most unusual of our exclusives. When we posted the swatch of the future wrap, most people wrote that the color combination looks strange, unusual and they don't know what to think about it. Honestly, I also did not know what to expect even though I was sure it would be a unique wrap.

And the result is great! Girasol Drop is the next popular SlingoMama exclusive after Symphuo and Donau.

Didymos Nino Tussah Natural

Better late than never! Didymos Nino Tussah Natural is available at SlingoMama web store. Limited quantities as usual.

Tussah silk is also called wild silk. It is darker than the cultivated silk, also known as mulberry silk. The reason of such dark color is the diet of the worms. They live in their natural conditions in the forests of China and eat leaves of Arjun, Asan and Oak trees.

The fibers of Tussah silk are shorter and stronger than the fibers of the cultivated silk. It feels less "silky" as well.

The new edition of Nino with Tussah silk is amazing due to the contrast of white cotton and coffee-creme silk.

Girasol Donau

I could write a very long post about Girasol Donau - he is beautiful, special, matches all your outfits, the eyes of your precious little ones, makes you think about your last vacation near the seaside, bla, bla, bla.... But I won't write it. You, our beloved fans of Girasols, know it yourself. So I just post the foto's. I think they speak for themselves.
