Welcome back to the cozy, versatile Diana Wrap!
The Diana Wrap originally appeared in some earlier, hand-made versions, but in Fall 2014 our first manufactured Diana burst on to the scene in a lovely Aluminum, and it has been a mainstay in our line-up every since. The Diana is named after Amy’s sweet mother-in-law, and it is Diana who really gets the credit for sharing her phenomenal seamstress skills when Amy was just beginning to learn how to sew!
The Diana Wrap in its Fall/Winter form is a favorite over here, because as Californians, this is our winter coat. The Aluminum was a luxurious medium weight, 100% cotton french terry wrap in a gorgeous go-with-everything aluminum grey color. The Diana Wrap style (fall/winter pieces) are made to have a “sloppier” fit to accommodate tee shirts underneath, one side of the wrap is left longer than the other so you can throw it over your shoulder. The edges are left raw to create our laid back distressed look and the neck, lapel and hood are complete with a soft, intricate, cable knit collar and hood in contrasting grey color. A very artisan style… the Diana Wrap makes you feel like you are cozied up in a warm blanket, the perfect sitting by the fire accessory. The Wrap also came with a kiltie pin so you can pin the knit into place if you need a little more security.

In early Spring 2015, the Diana Wrap returned in a slightly lighter, but still warm and soft fabric, and this time in a super feminine Blush Pink.

In Spring 2015 the Diana Wrap returned, but in a lighter fabric that was designed with our hot-weather friends in mind! This time we made it even more versatile. The two new Spring/Summer Diana’s were super duper soft and lightweight; coral and cream stripe fabric on one side, solid cream on the other side for one, and navy striped with grey for the other. These Diana Wraps came with grosgrain ties that allowed you to wear the wrap at least five different ways; including as an over the shoulder sleeved caplet, tied as a bow on one side, or as a dress To make it more exciting, these were both designed to be reversible.
These two neutral colors guaranteed that they could be rotated in your closet all season, serving as anything from a swim suit cover up to comfy evening bonfire excitement.

Just in time for Fall/Winter 2015, the cold-weather version of the Diana Wrap returned in a gorgeous black, with a charcoal black/grey soft knit trim and hood. Made of the thicker fabric like the earlier Aluminum and Blush Pink Diana Wraps, this Olive Black Diana sold out quicker than anyone imagined and has proven to be a fall/winter wardrobe staple.

And now, just in time for Summer 2016, is the Diana Wrap in Aqua! We used some of the most amazing super soft rayon slub jersey fabric and garment dyed it in this gorgeous Aqua color. You guys, we keep holding this one and drooling over it. It’s so so soft, and the garment dye just gives it the most amazing, unique finish and texture to the look. It has the traditional asymmetrical hem and hood. We have all agreed that this piece can be worn so many ways, wrapped up and belted like a dress, over a tank and shorts, over a dress, over a swimsuit…you could wear this with everything! It’s simply incredible!

What is the same? The Diana Wraps have always featured an asymmetrical bottom hem, that allows for one side to be tossed up and over the opposite shoulder, as well as a variety of other styling options. We kept the (unlined) hood, raw fabric edges, and of course, the super soft fabric.
What is different?The Diana in Aqua, however, has a less dramatic asymmetrical hem. It is still long enough on one side to allow for the traditional ‘shoulder toss’. We also left off the ties for this summer 2016 version.

The Diana Wrap is true to size; as usual, it’s a personal preference if you’d like to size up or down. It is designed to be loose to allow for simple layering, and more petite ladies might consider sizing down for a more snug fit or if a slightly shorter length is desired. Ladies with longer torsos, fuller busts, or longer arms can stay in their normal size or even size up if they want more length.

Care: we recommend washing on cold, with like colors, in a mesh laundry bag. Hang or lie flat to dry. Low setting iron if desired. For more laundry, color set, and care tips please see our FAQ section.
**Care Addendum** The Diana is recommended for hand washing only, with very minimal vigorous scrubbing if there are spots/stains. We did do a test machine-wash of it, on cold, with a cup of distilled white vinegar added. There was very slight fading but that’s barely noticeable. We added a brand new white cotton tee shirt to the wash and there was a small amount of color bleed into the white tee. If you plan to machine wash, make sure it is on cold, vinegar added, with like colors only. Lie flat or hang to dry.
The Diana Wrap will be available for purchase on May 17 at 10 am PST. It will ship approximately June 1. Let us know if you have any questions!
