Here at Woven Wings HQ, we have long loved our bourette silk. It’s bespeckled beauty is a visual feast for the eyes. When woven alongside our Luxury Egyptian cotton, a simple bourette takes on an entirely new look!
As our toddlers got bigger and heavier, we still found our bourette wraps to be incredibly supportive - though not very cushy. We wanted to develop a wrap that married the strength of bourette with the squishy softness of our double-weave wraps. This wrap would be the epitome of CUSH!
And thus, our tiles were created. We started simply with a basic block tile design, but that didn’t fully allow for the amazing interplay of the speckled bourette with the cotton. So, we looked to develop the block tile design to enhance the visual playfulness when wrapped. And Kingfisher Diamond Tiles were created. At first glance, the diamond shapes are at the same time a simple, universal design pattern. However, up close the interplay between the speckled bourette, the variety of tile gradations and double warps creates a complex, three-dimensional design.
Diamond Tiles is 16% bourette silk and 84% Egyptian cotton.
The first of our double weave, diamond tiles wraps features kingfisher, seafoam, and celery tiles speckled with charcoal and grey bourette against a creamy white contrast.
Like our other bourette silks in our Impressionist Series, Kingfisher Diamond Tiles will arrive unfinished and must be handwashed in lukewarm water to maintain the quality of the silk. Kingfisher Diamond Tiles is strong enough for heavy toddlers but softens up very quickly with just a few wears and is soft enough for small babies. Kingfisher Diamond Tiles weighs approximately 320 g/m² after a little breaking in.
