Our Bamboo

Hand-dyed in LA, our bamboo Theory collection is pre-shrunk and softened to cashmere-like perfection. 

The ultimate in form and function, this hand-dyed textile is a minimalist lover's dream. We’ve taken the finest bamboo, spun it with just a touch of linen, and woven it into a classic, yet mod herringbone weave. Unique in quality, bamboo is cool to the touch and breathes wonderfully in all climates, making it a perfect choice for all seasons. Add in the fact that bamboo is a sustainable resource and we’re simply obsessed.

            The Onbuhimo, what is it and why do we love it so much?

            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!
