We asked our model, Jenna, to give us her thoughts on our organic combed cotton, Sea Island Cotton & wild silk blend: Sono Athena.

Introducing the newest addition to the boutique family!
This 53% organic combed cotton, 25% Sea Island Cotton, 11% wild silk, 11% cotton blend is the perfect combination of strength and softness.
Classic Oscha organic combed cotton acts as the perfect base for this new blend. It provides strength and structure without adding bulk. Making for a beautifully fluid carry every time.
Sea Island Cotton is a truly magical fibre. It has a luxurious feel against the skin and is extremely breathable, making it wonderful for warmer weather. It also brings an element of cushioning without compromising support.
The touch of wild silk gives just enough grip and strength to keep passes nicely in place without feeling rough on picky shoulders.
Another beautiful blend that will not disappoint for all ages and wrapping abilities.
As the Elemental Collection celebrates the harsh diversity of the Scottish elements we take inspiration from the traditional textile techniques that have graced the protective layers worn by generations of families in Scotland for three intricate new designs and a gorgeous new Sea Island Cotton warp.
Lace and knitwear are inextricably linked with their Scottish origins, so when examining traditional textile techniques our gaze naturally fell on these heritage crafts. From this inspiration grew Croft, Sono and Lace: three new designs created for the Elemental Collection.
When Renee Bøgeskov got in touch about a wrap to take her 4 month old hiking in, we were intrigued about the practicalities of a hike in a sling. We asked Renee to share her experience of hiking whilst babywearing …
Even though both my husband and I are experienced in outdoor adventures, planning a trip to the mountains with a 4 month old baby seemed slightly intimidating. We did however feel confident that our baby girl would be happy and content as long as she felt safe, warm and dry. With her used to being wrapped in a sling, as well as the fact that a woven wrap seemed as the best, if not only way, to carry a baby at the same time as a back pack, I contacted Oscha for advice on which wrap to choose. Less than 24 hours later, a base size (s.6) Okinami Sal was delivered to my door step. After fighting off some small hesitations about dragging expensive Boutique tails through dirt and bonfire smoke, I looked forward to putting this wonderful blend of 49% Sea Island cotton, 10% Cashmere, 31% wool and 10% Tussah silk to the test.
