Greetings folks, here is a quick peak at the first design from our Signature Collection!
For our first signature design we had no farther to look then the wonderfully vibrant world of fashion. The chevron has been one of the most popular geometric patterns that and has been used in a multitude of media as of late. Whether it be in such home décor forms as, rugs, pillows, draperies, upholstery fabric, or in other forms such as gift wrap, shoes, dresses, purses, socks, ties, etc. It makes quite a bold statement and brings life into whatever medium it is on. Also of interest, the chevron stripe happens to have a rich history.
Wikipedia writes; “A chevron (also spelled cheveron, especially in older documents) is an inverted V-shaped pattern. The word is usually used in reference to a kind of fret in architecture, or to a badge or insignia used in military or police uniforms to indicate rank or length of service, or in heraldry and the designs of flags (see flag terminology). The symbol is also used on highway signs to guide drivers around curves.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevron_(insignia)
And as I many of you know, I myself toted chevrons on my collar for four years while serving in the Marine Corps. So for me, when I see the chevron pattern I may perhaps think less of vogue and more of valor, but either way you slice it; this classic pattern is sharp!
But back to textile geekery, the weave of this one is quite unique and has me very excited. The warp actually consists of not one, not two, but FOUR different threads; two neutral and two color. This make-up of the textile yields a very warp-dominant weave. I anticipate this being a favorite for all stages of babywearing.
I look forward to sharing with you the first few colorways Chevron will be released in. Stay tuned!
