Fabric and Care

What to Expect. Your Simple Silk carrier arrives with a gorgeous sheen and slight crunch that so many of our customers love. Your carrier will soften with use, but you can speed up the process by ironing it. Our dupioni silk is an all natural textile, and with that comes with natural variation including nubs, different colored threads, or small pulls in the fabric. We value these characteristics, and love the uniqueness they bring to every handmade carrier. 

Care. Caring for your Simple silk Onbuhimo is easy, both leather and no leather. When it’s time to wash your carrier, just follow the instructions on our site here. Need some tips on removing a stain on your carrier? We've got a video for that, too. Just keep scrolling!

      Carrier with a View, 15-35lb

      A traditional Japanese style baby carrier designed to be worn high on the back. Our waistless Onbuhimo carrier is perfect for babies 15-35 lbs who are sitting unassisted, and love exploring the world around them with a peekaboo view over your shoulder.

      Front or Back, Your Choice

      A great carrier for toddlers who love quick ups and downs, our Onbuhimo can be worn on the front or back, and comes with a detachable hood for sleepy little ones. 

      Great for all Body Shapes and Sizes

      Our Onbuhimo is great for all body shapes and sizes, and is a wonderful carrier for pregnant women as it has no waistband allowing for total bump freedom.

      Exploring Made Easy

      When your little one rides in their Onbuhimo, their shoulder just about matches your shoulder height. This gives them a peek-a-boo, forward facing view, while still remaining heart to heart. On your back, your baby can simply snuggle into your neck for a snooze or relax on your shoulder as they take in the sights. Seeing, feeling, and hearing you first, allows them to feel safe to explore or retreat, all in the comfort of one simple carry. 

      A Beautiful Gift, Made With Love in California

      We craft each carrier to perfection right here in our San Diego, CA workshop and then package it beautifully to go - whether a gift or for yourself, each Scout carrier comes complete with a full color instruction booklet and a removable sleeping hood.
