The Fabric Baby Sling
Sometimes we are asked why a fabric baby sling would cost the price it does. Fair question! So please allow us to explain.
The fabric for the Amawrap baby sling is made exclusively for us. This ensures that the fabric has exactly the right amount of stretch both ways, and as a result is comfortable to wrap with yet provides optimum support to baby. Many wraps contain elastane to provide the stretch, however ours do not. We ensure that the 100% cotton fabric was knitted in such a way to get the same effect, but naturally. The Amawrap is a one-way stretch, meaning that it has a vertical stretch so that you can pull it over babys bum, but no horizontal stretch, meaning it will not sag.
The dyes used are baby friendly, therefore all chewing and sucking on the sling by baby (and it will happen!) is absolutely safe.
Our slings are safety tested to PD CEN/TR 16512:2015 Child use and care articles – Guidelines for the safety of children’s slings.
You get our professional help in using your Amawrap and materials to assist you, especially relevant is that the help is available even if you have another brand – we are still here!
Made in the Uk
Here at Amawrap we are proud to pledge our ongoing support to local businesses. All Amawrap slings are made here in the Midlands by a long established, family owned manufacturer, who we have worked with for several years. Their team has as much passion for our products as we do, which ensures our slings are a premium, long-lasting product, each made with love and care. Our 100% cotton carriers are made by adults operating in fair working conditions, so we can assure Amawrap customers they’re sourcing ethically made products while also minimising the carbon footprint of every baby sling purchased. These factors are at the heart of everything we do at Amawrap and while we may not be the biggest baby sling manufacturer in the business, we are proud to pledge that our focus is helping parent and baby bond, not margins. At Amawrap it’s about parents – not profits.
There are a number of new wrap brands entering the market using viscose brands imported from the Far East such as Tencel, Lyocell or Modal. While these viscose fabrics are certainly soft, our extensive research and experience will keep bringing us back to our luxurious 100% Natural Cotton wraps.
Our wraps are also certified “Hip Healthy” by the International Hip Displasia Institute.
Used for preterm babies
Our wraps are used in hospitals, and we also tend to send out wraps to charities once a month, based on recommendations from our customers – we would love for you to also ask your viewers for recommendations of where we could send one too!
We are a long established family owned business, with our family’s ancestry and roots embedded within babywearing cultures. You could say it’s in our blood! We used wraps for our children, and wraps were used on us when we were babies ourselves. Culturally for us, this practice has gone back generations so you can be assured that you are in safe hands. (As well as the stringent safety testing, of course!) We know, and love, babywearing.
