100% Peruvian pima cotton
Eseasons is a Russian handwoven brand, they started in 2012. They only want to use the best yarns from Italy, Canada and the United States.
Dionysius is made with 100% Peruvian pima cotton, Peruvian pima cotton is an extra long staple (ELS) cotton, primarily grown in Peru. Pima cotton is shorter than egyptian cotton but it’s softer than normal cotton.
It’s a wrap with deep red, blue and chestnut yarns, in a Symbol weave.
Their weaver also weaves and reconstructs vintage fabrics and Eseasons plans to do something in that direction in the future.
First impression: beautiful, warm colour combination. The chestnut brown compliments the red and blue perfectly. It feels a bit heavy in hand, I was pretty surprised that it’s ‘only’ around 280gr/m². The symbol weave looks a little bit like a diamond weave with different sizes of diamonds. If I need to compare it to other brands I would say it’s in between a chunky handwoven (which is thicker) & the Lemonlooms twill tester I tried (which is a bit thinner). The rails are hemmed, but if the customer prefers to leave the rails unhemmed they can ask before ordering.
The wrap was already soft and floppy. Very easy to wrap with and has a nice grip. This is an all-rounder: comfortable in a rucksack carry with your toddler, smooth wrapping to learn the double hammock and soft enough for your tiny newborn! This wrap is suitable for both newbie wrappers & experienced babywearers. It’s a great choice if you’re looking for something which will accompany you & your child until your babywearing days are over.
This colourway gives the wrap two looks. Wear it with the red side up to show the deep red, or wear it with the red side at the bottom if you prefer the blue for that day!
The choice of material (100% pima cotton) makes this a ‘wrapping-with-tails-in-the-mud-wrap’ for me. Easy to wash if needed, no need to be extra carefull.
The weave isn’t prone to pulls and surprisingly airy. It has a nice stretch and feels very nice on your shoulders. A little bit fluffy!
It stays in place with a half knot, I’ve worn it in a rucksack tied tibetan with a knotless finish, which is a great choice with this wrap.
I think it would make a nice rucksack wrap if you pick a size 4, but a longer wrap is more versatile and it’s a pleasure to try different carries with this wrap.
Dionysius doesn’t need a lot of breaking in, but I think it will get even softer than it already is.
Eseasons sell their wraps on etsy, just keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates on upcoming releases.
