Linuschka Rhapsody Nocturne

There are wraps like journey, mood, bright emotion, there are wraps like music.
A wrap for me is also a history, I like to know the source of inspiration, understand the mood, realize the color, feel the moment when color, blend and pattern were united.

Rhapsody (Greece ῥαψῳδία — heroic song) in the music of XIX — first half of XX centuries — is a contrast instrumental or vocal composition, written in free, improvisational style. Alteration of episodes in different manners, based on folk songs is common to rhapsody. As if it reconstructs performance of ancient singer – rhapsodes. In XIX century it reappears under the influence of romanticism aesthetic, with its peculiar interest to folklore. Initially rhapsody was meant for piano and resembled a folk fantasia.

Wrap in pattern Rhapsody by German brand Linuschka. Like a musical opus, the pattern re-works and units creation of Hungarian folk: embroidery and fine setting in Modern style by architecture Béla Lajta.

Nocturne (fr. nocturne — «night»). Genre of nocturne appeared in Middle Ages. At that time a part of religious Catholic action, taking part after midnight and before dawn – tenebrae or mating – was called nocturne. Nocturne separated from purely church genre in XVIII, having passed into chamber work, which is played in the open air at night.

At the interface of day and night, deep blue and dark magenta is a spectacular color solution, beloved of many people.
Thick and rather close, but very supportive and pliant, true, tough. It is lain on shoulders with thick and soft shirs. Composition: 45% bio-cotton, 32% Egyptian cotton, 20% merino, 3% cashmere. Merino and cashmere add softness and gentleness, letting thick cotton become very comfortable. The best choice for grown toddler and heavy kids.
