This Löft ring sling is handwoven by Sa-ard.
The fabric is handmade without any use of machines, 100% organic and 100% biodegradable. This is the essence of sustainable luxury.
It has a rustic look and a lot of structure. This ring sling is strong, supportive, breathable and has a good grip. It will be perfect for toddlers.
The cotton is harvested by hand, handspun and dyed with organic bark without any use of chemicals. The fabric has a slight scent of bark and contains small pieces of black bark, this will go away when the sling is used.
The ring sling is made of natural fibers only and handwoven under very primitive conditions without any machines; the artisans use handmade bamboo looms.
The silk is made by the silk moth larvaes. The artisans handfeed the larvaes with organic Mulberry leaves, they clean their nests and protect them from the Sun. When the silk is ready, they collect it from the cocoons and spin it.
The fabric has been washed, so you can go ahead and use it.
A Löft product is made by humans, not machines. No hands are perfect and no threads are endless, so there might be visible thread shifts, small knots and other irregularities. This is the beauty of a handwoven product. Every piece is unique.
To limit the use of plastic and unnecessary packing, your ring sling/wrap will come in an handwoven organic drawstring bag. When you wear your baby on the front, you can carry diapers and food in the drawstring on the back.
When your carrying days are over, we recommend that you pass on the ring sling/wrap to other parents or make it into your favorite scarf, embracing all the memories of you carrying your baby.
