Parterre is the name of the design we are using for our current samples, it describes the romantic fluid floral elements, but also the rigidity of the repeat, which is walled in by a border at the middle of the wrap to mark the center for ease of use. It is the first in our En Plein Air series, the story of a painter traveling the world for inspiration with her baby held close, working al fresco, studying botany and colour theory. She may become a landscape architect, she may become a scientist, we will follow her journey and delight in her discoveries.
Out for review in Parterre we have Cobalt, Moraine, Sylvan, and Acanthus. According to our tester pool of the four the Acanthus sample is the lightest weight and has a desirable bandage-like feel when wrapped, while Cobalt, Moraine, and Sylvan have a greater learning curve to acclimate to the unique density and texture.
Parterre is a heavy dense wrap, it breaks in slowly to become soft and moldable, it is an ideal wrap for older babies and heavy toddlers. For younger babies we would rather recommend Parterre Acanthus or Procresco, also 100% cotton, but soft out of the bag, and easier to manipulate with its narrower width and drapey hand.
