Using nature’s blueprint, Mr. Blue Skye creates magic once again! In this fourth iteration, textile artist Rachel Ehlin-Smith has chosen our signature Belgian linens as her canvas - hand-dying these unique slings from locally foraged flowers and greenery in her Little Italy studio and crafting subtle patterns that complement hues of rose, earth, and gold.
Separated into three colorways, every piece is individually hand-dyed and has unique flower placement resulting in the same dye tones with slight variation in dye pattern. This kaleidoscope-effect is a collector's dream, and wearable all year long.
Luxurious yet laid back; these one-of-a-kind works of art weave the natural world in with your baby and you. Leather + Linen. Soft supple American leather, sourced from our local Southern California tannery. All crafted into carriers right here in our coastal San Diego workshop. Wear it on your front, wear it on your back. For use with babies 15 -35lbs. who are sitting unassisted, typically about 6 months and up.
Please note as each piece is individually hand dyed, there are lots of variations in the final product and each carrier is truly one-of-a-kind. The photographed sling may not be the one you receive.

An onbuhimo is a traditional Japanese style baby carrier designed to be worn high on the back. This waistless soft carrier gives a wonderful feeling of freedom to you while letting your little one ride high enough to see over your shoulder and be right where the action is. Comfortable and supportive for both of you.
Our Onbuhimo carrier is as beautiful as it is functional, is extremely lightweight, and folds up small for easy diaper bag storage. This carrier is designed for babies who are sitting unassisted, from 15 lbs up to 35 lbs. A great carrier for toddlers who love quick ups and downs! Also, a wonderful carrier for pregnant mothers as it has no waistband. Our Onbuhimo can be worn on the front or back, has two available chest strap sizes, six different chest clip positions, and a detachable hood for sleepy babies. Made right here in California of signature Sakura Bloom linen with our new supple leather. Designed with both you and your baby in mind, with less straps and less fuss, our Onbuhimo makes outings simple - just the way we like things at Sakura Bloom!
