Flowing ecru trees shine through a black background on this organic cotton baby carrier. Named for the substance made from Mithril, Ithildin is used to create magical inscriptions which are only revealed when the correct incantation is said in the reflected light of the Moon and stars.
The trees in this pattern each represent part of the lineage of the White Trees. The original White Tree was much beloved by the Elves, it emanated silver light, and 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.

The White Tree is the emblem of Gondor, symbolising rebirth and the lineage of the Kings. Yet it also connects back to the very creation myths of the Middle-earth universe. Our Ancients of GONDOR pattern represents the long lineage of the White Trees leading up to and including the Tree of Gondor, as described in the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.
Stylised, flowing tree forms, reminiscent of Celtic knots, are bordered by a simple meandering line of dots, interspersed with the Elvish script, naming each tree in turn.
