As much as we would love to announce the arrival of a new bundle of joy... we are still waiting. So why not announce a new design instead? Duet is a new design by Juliette, two contrasting birds who spiral together in infinte tesselating flight. Juliette studied fine art in The Hague, Netherlands and her academy was only a few streets from museums of celebrated dutch artists, one being M.C. Escher. The art of tesselation, though used throughout history as an art form heavily infulenced by mathematics and geometry, was taken to a new level by M. C. Escher by using irregular interlocking shapes like animals and other natural forms. Though influenced by Escher, Juliette's design Duet is very much in her own art style. This high contrasting colour way of super dark navy warp with light turquoise and blue alternating weft we are calling 'Duet en bleu.' 'La vie en bleu' is a lesser know countrpart of the french phrase 'la vie on rose' meaning a happy life. La vie on bleu means the life of a dreamer. Also to go with the design name 'Duet,' a piece of music written in a minor key is often referred to as 'en bleu' or 'in blue.' And the final reason for the name, the wrap is of course.. blue.
This is the first planned release for after the baby arrives. So if you like it send us some labour vibes!
