100% Handmade Organic Mulberry Silk. Olive brown with matte silver rings.
We have spent nearly one year on this project and finally we are able to present this very unique product.
This is the essence of sustainable luxury.
Every little bit of this fabric is made by hand, without using any machines. The women from the village start by planting the organic mulberry plants. Then they handfeed the silkworms with the leaves, and after some time they can spin the silk yarn. Then they dye it with organic vegetable dyes and finally they hand weave the fabric. This is a very long process.
This silk wrap is strong and breathable. It has a beautiful shine and a very thin luxurious hand feel. It is perfect for new borns and babies- up to 12kg. This is the perfect summer sling.
This Löft Ring sling is woven by Som. She lives in a small village in the Northeast of Thailand near the Cambodian boarder and can only speak Khmer. We visited her while she was finishing the weaving of this beautiful fabric. She weaves in her home while taking care of her children. Her house is without electricity, so the loom is placed by the window, so the sun can provide the necessary light. Som is self employed, she uses her business to provide for her family.
1345Dkk/ 180,72€ incl. FREE INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC SHIPPING and Vat. Customers outside the EU will not be charged VAT.
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.
