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.
