As we all know, textiles are not all created equal and when you are wearing your baby wrapped to your body, the textile that you choose makes a huge difference in terms of comfort and support for both you and your baby. The fiber itself, how it is spun, how the yarn is woven - these things matter. Our first love for babywearing is silk. In fact it is the one textile that has remained a constant in our lineup since the day that we launched Sakura Bloom back in 2006.
OUR FIRST LOVE, SILK
Grippy and strong, supportive and breathable, absorbent and lightweight. Full of character and dimension. The natural nubs and slubs of the threads tell the story of this textile's origins in the mulberry trees of India. Silk fibers are short which is what helps to make the silk so supportive and comfortable. Allowing for the carrier to have the tiniest amount of give without stretch, so that it molds perfectly to you and your baby every time.
Silk is our favorite recommendation for toddlers, for summer, and for anyone looking for that one sling to take them from the newborn days through the toddler years. It is incredibly lightweight, supportive and breathable. Silk's rock solid support, ability to dry quickly and low profile packability make it the perfect textile for any adventure.
Handloomed in India, and hand-crafted to perfection right here in our coastal San Diego workshop.
Lustrous, yet matte silk fibers, tightly spun into the finest matka silk yarn and densely woven into your new favorite textile. Wearable in any season and for any occasion, our Maven Collection has us simply swooning. Soft and sleek, refined yet full of charm. Unmatched support, comfort, and beauty in a single layer silk sling.
Cozy, check. Insanely supportive, check. Lightweight, check. Newborn ready, check. Toddler worthy, check. We could go on and on...
