Its winter here.
Cold and snowy, prompting dreams of someplace warm and tropical.
Blue skies. Sandy beaches. Calm blue seas. A gentle breeze.
Crafted from exquisite wild-sourced tussah silk, the Azure sling is perfect for winter days as well as summer ones.
Vibrant and yet subtle at the same time, this color matches just about everything and flatters just about everyone.

Ode to Tussah (with apologies to Pablo Neruda)
with its imperfections,
on the loom.
which remember across
now the moth,
spreads its wings
rides the wind:
and the silk,
bears the child and knows it is good.
If you know your textiles, you know tussah. Gorgeous, complex, the sort of textile in which you see something new with every glance.
Our new Luxe Collection has six slings made from wild tussah–Azure, Flor, Mother of Pearl, Rioja, Sandstone, and Verde. Wild tussah is an eco-friendly silk, made from the cocoons of wild silk moths after the moth emerges. Our specially sourced tussah is traditionally woven with hand dyed silk threads. The result is a sumptuous textile, strong but soft, and with beautiful prismatic hues. Sustainable and simply irresistable!
