Custom Handwoven Review- Maritime Patriot by Fiolia Handwovens

Maritime Patriot, woven by Fiolia Handwovens
Warp: 8/2 UKI Cotton
Weft: 8/2 Egyptian Cotton Bockens
Length 2.5m (2.67 measured with soft tape) 
Width: 27.5 inches
GSM: 295 g/m2
Herringbone weave with a diamond herringbone tail accent on one tail.


My wrapee is 32" and 25 pounds.

This was my first handwoven custom. I've had the chance to try a couple other handwoven travelers before, but I haven't owned one. This wraps like a dream. Soft and cushy on the shoulders with lovely bounce and diagonal stretch. While I planned to convert this to a ring sling, I just can't bring myself to do it. I love it so much. It makes a beautiful large knot. Has the perfect amount of grip. No flaws.

There was a random issue with a broken thread on one edge. I sent it back to the weaver and she fixed it for me. You can't tell there was anything wrong with it now. I have no idea what happened, but she was wonderful about fixing it and making sure I was happy.

Working with Rini was great. She has great communication and made sure that I was in love with the  design. She is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to owning more of her handwovens in the future. 




Cute tag, adorable button. (buttons no longer attached to meet regs)

Blue Egyptian cotton diamond herringbone diamond tail accent.

Beautiful large knot!
