Didymos Pfau viola-ecru…a love story

Maybe you’d like to see a comparison between the anniversary Pfau (2007) and Pfau viola-ecru from 2013  ? 🙂
These two wraps are my most precious Pfau wraps next to Juno. The anniversary Pfau was my first peacock that I bought and that made me fell in love with the pattern. I used it a lot with my daughter and peacocks are now still one of her favorite animals.
Pfau viola-ecru was released in August, 2013, just one month after I was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloic leukemia). I have been many times in contact with Didymos in the years before, met Anna and Tina and worked with them on several wraps. But I had nothing to do with this wrap…but they knew that I was sick and they knew that I love the pattern.
I guess I was crying the whole evening when I saw them releasing viola-ecru and said that they are donating 5 Euro to the German Bone Marrow Donation Foundation for every sold Peacock.
Here is the original description from Didymos:

“Pfau Viola-Ecru / Peacock Viola-Ecru

Ecru in der Kette und Violett im Schuss verweben sich in ein lebendiges Pfauenmuster. Ca. 220 g/m² aus reiner kbA-Baumwolle. / Ecru warp and violet weft make for a lively peacock pattern. About 220 g/m² of pure organic cotton.

Dies ist das Lieblingsmuster einer Kundin, die an Leukämie erkrankt ist. Deswegen spenden wir für jedes verkaufte DIDYMOS Tuch Pfau Viola-Ecru 5 Euro an die Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei. Und damit die Spende nicht durch eine Stückzahl begrenzt ist, können einzelne Größen dieses Modells nachproduziert werden. / This is the favorite pattern of one of our customers that has been diagnosed with leukemia. Therefore we give 5 Euro to the German Bone Marrow Donation Foundation for every sold Peacock Viola-Ecru. As we don’t want to restrict the contribution by the number of slings, we have arranged to produce more slings of certain sizes.”

I have wrapped in many other wraps from many other companies…but Didymos will always be closest to my heart, not only due to their lovely wraps, but also because of who the people behind the scenes are…with all their compassion and friendliness that they show again and again ❤ ❤ ❤

Didymos Pfau love

10 years ago I bought my first peacock wraps (Didymos 45th anniversary in violet and black) and since thenthey are a huge favorite of mine. I can’t believe that it is already so long ago, but my daughter loves those wraps so much that I’m on a strict selling ban even if she isn’t wrapped anymore….well…she would still love to be on my back, but with already 8 years she is just too heavy 😉

 

Do you have a favorite pfau ? Do you prefer the old or the new pattern ?

finally didymos released the first blue pfau. and this wrap is beyond gorgeous. it is with 50% linen and the first anniversary pfau pattern with a linen content. the colors of the wrap are really hard to capture and the pics don’t do the wrap justice.

i was staring the whole day at the wrap and the blue has some kind of purple undertone. the linen is a turquoise which shimmers like crazy. depending on the light the wrap sometimes seems to be blue-turquoise, sometimes purple-teal. i used it in a quick double hammock today with my daughter and it was very easy to wrap with but still supportive. it is nothing like the old pfau linen wraps, but more like the black hemp pfau which was released last year. can’t wait to geek some more on this wrap, but i’m so happy i did go for it.

india stonegrey with 40% wool

release date: 12/04/2012
limited release in size 5, 6, 7 (?)
price: € 149  for a sz 6

60% cotton, 40% wool

this is already the third official didymos india release, but i will start with reviewing them because they are so especially gorgeous. india is a design from erin arnason from the usa that didymos has been woven (just a quick but important notice – be sure to hear and see much more from her and i bet it will all be amazingly beautiful. check out pavo textiles now and then)DSC_0944

india stonegrey with wool was released somewhen in the night and as far as i know only one retailer got the wraps. india is so soft in feel, on the thinner to medium side and beyond beautiful. i will get measurements soon, but please enjoy the pics together with india in anthracit, gold, natural (with 40% tussah silk) and the heavy-weight india natural 50% hemp:
