Handwoven Organic Undyed Banana 50%, Organic Cotton 50%.
Approximately 190-210cm long ex. rings and 75cm wide.
The world is wasting about a billion tons of banana stems each year, Löft uses some of the stems to make this amazing textile, which is almost carbon free.
This is the 2. edition of our very popular ring sling, handwoven by Shiva. The edges is a little lighter than previously. It has black cotton warp and a natural colored banana weft.
Many of our experienced testers have called this ring sling “the very best sling they have ever tried”.
The banana fiber is strong, soft and lightweight.
When the banana fiber is mixed with cotton, it creates a very supportive ring sling with a good grip.
It is strong and perfect for bigger babies and toddlers.
The banana fiber is undyed, so you can see the beautiful nuances of the natural fiber, going from off-white to beige. The banana has a wild and uneven structure with lots of nubs, very different from all other fibers. This creates a raw and cool look.
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.
