Indio Love (or lust?)

Hello, my name is Aida and I'm a wrapaholic. There. I said it.

But, in my defence, they're so beautiful how could I possibly resist?


Look at this Viola Indio. OMG, how stunning is that colour? it is quite possibly my most beautiful wrap. When i received it it was already soft and oh so scrumptious. It's about 3meters in length, shorter than my normal size. I'm going to challenge my wrapping skills with this shorter wrap..i'll make videos to show my progress..i got this wrap at such a bargain too! This wrap is 100% organic cotton. Compared to silk indios it is slightly thicker and if you ran you hands on the surface, you can feel the indio pattern, making the wrap quite grippy. With silk indios the surface is smoother.

IMG_1007 lovely Flamingo Indio. The colour is a bit hard to photograph. The threads are pink and cream. I have been in lust with the wrap for a LOOOng time...I bought this brand new. When it came out of the box, it was kind of crunchy and rough. But one spin in the washing machine it immediately got soft and floppy. This wrap is also 100% organic cotton. I think this colour matches Mia's skin tone beautifully..


Look at these two together. You can already tell these are my kind of colours :)


This one is an undyed silk indio. I bought it to compare it to my dyed silk indio. Turns out they're both soft and silky. Silk indios are definitely softer than cotton indios. But the cream colour is not really my colour so i thought i was going to sell this wrap....however..i don't know..the cream looks so pure. When I wrap Mia in this wrap it feels like the most natural thing in the world - like I could be a mother in midst of Africa nurturing her newborn.

if you look closely you can see the shine of the silk threads running across the cotton threads. With a dyed silk indio the shine is gone.


You've seen my dyed silk indio. It was my birthday present to myself and it is my most expensive wrap. But it is worth it. I don't think i'll ever sell this wrap.


All my indios together. Oh how I love them. Almost as much as I love that pretty little girl in the background.

lol. you see why i love indios, even though the pattern is nothing to brag about? =P. i want a roise. and a lampone. or a ziegel. i prefer wildrose as a pink wrap. but i prefer them in linen i think, due to our hot weather =D.
i have a red-ivory, mandarin and quarz. been meaning to sell them but after seeing this post, i might not... lol

aidafiqs adamia said...

are you kidding me? i love the indio pattern! yes wildrose is gorgeous it's my first choice but it's hard to find one! flamingo is easier to find and it looks identical to wildrose. if you search in the tbw forum, some hardcore indio lovers did an investigation on flamingo and wildrose. it's almost impossible to tell them apart. no no don't sell your indios! hehe...i'll look for linen indios before we come home to msia for good ;)

See my Aida on MBW. It's BEAUTIFUL! :D

Not much to review though. Except that it is wearable in Malaysia compared to SI and CGW. IMHO la..
