Midnight black and dove gray.
In honor of our losses. In memory of our love.
During the design and development phase of this wrap, we were searching for a special significance and meaning to the elegant design at which we had arrived. The answer we received was both heartbreaking and clear.
Two friends confided in us their devastating pregnancy losses. For one, it was a fifth loss. For the other, her ninth. Our hearts tore in two for their loss of that soft warmth in their arms. Something--someone--to hold. We could not give them those sweet children back. But we could create something for them to hold. To carry. To wear.
Solace, which we named the wrap's pattern, means comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness.
Vesper, which we named the wrap's colorway, means evening prayer: a representation of the feverish nighttime pleas into the darkness.
This wrap is dedicated specially to the mothers who have lost a baby, but there are so many losses that deprive us of someone to hold. This wrap is for the fathers of those babies, too. It is for the grandbabies who have lost grandparents, and the grandparents who have lost grandbabies. Solace for the parent who has lost his or her partner. Solace for the mother who grieves the loss of the dreamed-of birth. Solace for the parent who has lost a parent. For the loss of a self that existed before a new chapter began. For the grievance of the loss of a relationship that ended. For the parents who grieve a brother or sister: an aunt or an uncle their babies won't know.
For all these reasons and more, we dedicate this wrap to them, those whose hearts have been pulled in directions they didn't know existed, or directions they already knew but wished they'd never return to.
May it bring you peace in the midst of the struggle. May it calm the fury of the darkness.
