Oscha Woven Baby Wrap Middle Earth Ancients of Gondor Ithildin Design Book

We are proud to present The Middle-Earth Collection, the official collection of baby wraps and ring slings inspired by the legendary The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books.

This collection is the result of a long-held desire here at Oscha to create a collection inspired by the world set out in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Drawing inspiration from the rich tales, and with exclusive rights from Middle-earth Enterprises, we have created a series of gorgeous designs steeped in a mythology that has enthralled generations of children and adults.

With designs reflecting every detail of this world, from the geography of Middle-earth to individual characters, this Collection spans the breadth of this immersive tale.

We feel that the carefully crafted creation of this world naturally complements Oscha’s unique, timeless aesthetic. A shared dedication to creating a considered piece of art, along with a devotion to the minutiae of this folklore has allowed us to bring Middle-earth to life in an authentic and tasteful way: creating truly wearable art for our fans.

Over the last two years our designers have immersed themselves in the intricate traditions of these wonderful books, creating beautiful designs which faithfully capture the unique magic within. This Collection has been an enduring passion for the Oscha team over the past two years and creating these designs has been a real labour of love: this is evident not only in the fine details of these new designs, but in our designers’ careful interpretation of the motifs of Middle-earth.

Our first Middle-earth design, Ancients of Gondor, is inspired by the lineage of White Trees. The original White Tree was much beloved by the Elves. Emanating silver light, it is said the Moon was formed from its last silver flower. Each tree thereafter is seen to symbolise divine qualities of goodness, wisdom and purity.

These gorgeously intricate trees are representative of a line starting with Celeborn – the last White Tree to grow in the original dwelling place of the Elves, leading to Nimloth – a sapling of Celeborn that was planted in the land of Númenor, and finally to a sapling of Nimloth that became the first of the line to be found in Middle Earth – the White Tree of Gondor.

“The world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, and I smell it in the air.”

This ethereal quality was something our designers worked hard to capture on this first, stunning design from our Middle-Earth Collection. Stylised, flowing tree forms, reminiscent of Celtic knots, are bordered by a simple meandering line of dots, interspersed with Elvish script, naming each tree in turn.

From here, we have developed the following designs. Click through to the links to discover the concept behind each & see the final slings in each design: SmaugRohan, Oakenshield, Doors Of Durin, Shire & Galadriel
