Over a year ago, Baby Tula and ABWovens began discussing the possibility of an exclusive collaboration with Chicibeanz, a weaver whose hand-dyed, handwoven wraps and wrap conversion carriers are highly desired in the babywearing community. After much discussion and planning, we are so excited that "Dreamer" is finally ready to snuggle some babies!
The warp layout was designed thread-by-thread by Echo, the talented weaver behind Chicibeanz. That design was then sent to our mill where our weaver wove this fabric up with a kaleidoscope weave. While the warp was created with the luxurious Brassard cotton yarns we always use for our Signature Line runs, there were two separate batches of weft yarns: Echo hand-dyed several different fiber blends to run as the weft for some of the fabric, and some of the fabric was woven with the standard Brassard yarns as the weft.
- The hand-dyed fabric yardage has been sent to Chicibeanz where it'll be sewn into various carriers and accessories and released both on the Chicibeanz website and in their chatter group via draw-to-purchase, so make sure to check out their Facebook page for more info.
- The remaining fabric yardage is here at ABWovens where it'll be sewn into various carriers and accessories. They will be released on our website or via draw-to-purchase, so make sure to follow our Facebook page for all the release info.
- Fabric yardage from both batches has been sent to Tula, the SSC manufacturer who will have exclusive access to this gorgeous fabric. Look for Dreamer in their upcoming stockings!
** All products in the Dreamer collection will include a special logo tag combining the pixie from the Chicibeanz logo with the apple blossoms from the ABWovens logo. On wraps, these logo tags will be used for the middle marker; on ring slings, they will be sewn along the tail; on cowls, they will be sewn along one hem; and on throw blankets, they will be sewn in one corner. **
