Recenzija ručno tkane marame po narudžbi: Mima Handwovens “Astronomy”

S odličnom maramom i pogreška u koracima lako dovede do potpuno novog veza.

Ovaj put imam priliku recenzirati maramu ručno tkanu prema željama kupca, tj. mene. 🙂

[Please scroll down for the English translation]

Milana (Mima) Latinović može istkati maramu za nošenje beba u određenoj duljini, širini, istaknuti rub u drugoj boji, ručno obojati potku i osnovu, miješati materijale, radi različite gustoće i tipove tkanja, može napraviti i različite oznake sredine (vezene, ušivene, istkane), rese… I sve ove želje kupaca mogu se ispoštovati ali da ipak ostane vidljiv i prepoznatljiv vlastiti rad i potpis.

Prvi susret s Miminim radom opisala sam ovdje.

Mima se može poigrati i s bojama osnove i potke kao i s tipovima tkanja.
…a može istkati materijal i za oblikovanu nosiljku po narudžbi. Na fotografijama je nosiljka s prilagodljivim panelom iz sarajevskog studija ZMajčice, s bebom od 8 mj.
…i bebom od 12 mj.

Birala sam srcoliko keperno tkanje koje je jako, prozračno i s naglašenom teksturom s prave i krive strane. Nisam si mogla pomoći- odabrala sam upletene resice.

Ove su godine izuzetno popularne rese na ručno tkanim maramama. Daju lijepi pad i obogaćuju izgled marame. Morala sam ih isprobati!

Inače sam zazirala od resa svih tipova sve dok me Mima nije razuvjerila.  Bojala sam se da će se petljati i smetati mi u vezanju no ugodno sam se iznenadila. Boje sam birala prema bojama kojima nam teleskopi američke svemirske agencije NASA prikazuju poznati svemir. Mima je pogodila čak i nijanse.

Osnovne boje su plava, ljubičasta, žuta i malo crvene (koja više vuče na neonsko narančasto u tragovima (samo bljesne u tkanju).
Toliko mi se svidio konačni rezultat da mi se zahvaljujući salonu “Nails by L” marama preselila i na nokte!
Marama daje vrlo veliki čvor, što sam i očekivala od ovakvoga gušćeg tkanja (~350 g/m2)  no to sve daje priliku igranju s prstenima za nošenje i ekperimentiraju s beščvornim vezovima.

Marama se odlično ponaša u jednoslojnim i višeslojnim vezovima. Slojevi se zatežu bez velikog otpora, lako sjedaju na mjesto i drže svu težinu bez propadanja tijekom nošenja. Oprašta vrlo šlampavo vezanje. Ono što odmah upada u oko jest kako se marama predivno plisira!

Neobična slučajnost jest da je američki Mad Hatter Warped & Woven prvi objavio prve fotografije vrlo slične marame (po boji, tkanju i resama) nekoliko tjedana nakon Mime.

U praktičnoj duljini (3,4 m) ovu maramu mogu nositi i kao šal.

Nosite li i vi svoje kratke marame kao šalove?

Ako ste ikada sanjali određenu teksturu i boje, htjeli unikatnu maramu koja se odmah odlično veže bez ikakvog lomljenja, želite trajnu uspomenu na nošenje koju ćete predati dalje i unucima u naslijeđe, ozbiljno razmislite o tome da si date tkati maramu po želji. Ne samo da se isplati nego će ostati i kao predivna uspomena na najslađe godine Vaših bebača.

Mima živi tkanu umjetnost. Tka i šalove, stolnjake, izrađuje zidne instalacije… Za više informacija posjetite i njezinu stranicu Mima Handwovens.

Upravo mi je stigao novi ručno tkani šal! ❤ 100% litvanski lan, lagan, hladan, prozračan, unikatan, savršen za pridržavanje bebine usnule glavice i na tropskim temperaturama.
I podsjetio me koliko sam bila oduševljena kad sam shvatila da mogu spojiti ljubav, strast i praktičnost: šalove, marame i nošenje beba! Hvala Mima!

English translation of the review

by Lidija Turić 

This time I have the pleasure of reviewing a custom handwoven wrap made just for me. Milana (Mima) Latinović can weave a babywearing wrap in any given length and width, and offers a wide range of custom details like a differently colored hem, handpainted weft and warp, various blends, GSMs and weaves. Even the middle marker can be custom made (embroidered, sown or woven), and there is the option of fringes. Everything is made according to the buyer’s wishes, with the weaver’s personal signature remaining intact.

I’ve chosen the twill variation heart weave, which is very light and airy, with visibly different textures of the right and wrong side. Additionally, I couldn’t help opting for the fringes. This year fringes are very popular on handwoven wraps. They drape beautifully and add to the overall appearance of the wrap. I just had to try them! I was initally apprehensive of all types of fringes until Mima convinced me to give them a try. I was afraid they would get entangled and make the wrapping difficult, but now I can say I was pleasantly surprized by them.

I chose the wrap’s colors according to the colors NASA telescopes display when photographing the known universe. Mima even got the exact shades. The basic colors are blue, purple, yellow and a bit of red (which is more of a neon orange) that just pops up as an trace color. I was so impressed by the final product that I got the design transferred onto my nails at the salon Nails by L.

The wrap produces a very large knot, which is to be expected from such a dense weave (~350 GSM), but that gives me the opportunity to experiment with sling rings and knotless finishes.

The wrap excells in both single and multipass carries. Each pass is easily tightened, slides into place and supports the baby’s weight without creating slack during wearing. It is forgiving with very sloppy wrapjobs. What immediately catches the eye is just how wonderfully the wrap pleats iself.

This wrap inspired me to experiment, and in the end I invented an entirely new carry based on rearranged DSS2S: Adrian’s (Ruckless) Carry. 

It is simply a very odd coincidence that the American company Mad Hatter Warped & Woven published photos of a wrap similar to this one just weeks after Mima had published her first photos.

Thanks to its convenient length of 3,4m, I can wear my wrap as a scarf. Do you do the same with your shorties?

If you’ve ever dreamt of a certain texture and colors on a unique wrap that wraps perfectly without the need for breaking in, or if you want a keepsake from your babywearing days to be handed down to your grandchilden as a legacy wrap, you might want to consider ordering a custom woven wrap. It is well worth the money and it’ll always be there to remind you of the time your children were the most adorable.

Mima truly is an artist of the weave. She also makes scarves, tablecloths, wall tapestry etc. For more info visit her web page Mima Handwovens.

Marama dopušta i igranje s vezanjem. Tako je nastao i novi vez Adrian’s (Ruckless) Carry

  1. Da nisam svedok koliko se autorkina, tj. Mimina, vlastita deca s radošću nose u marami, teže bih poverovala. Ovako, dođe mi žao što nisam mala, pa da i mene neko tako “spakuje” i meko i nežno ušuškanu tako nosi!😉
