How I can make my own Baby Wrap

It’s with the same cross twill that we make your bamboo Baby Wraps and bamboo Slings.

The Baby Wraps and lengths of cloth cut to order come from the same rolls of material we work with as our customer orders come in.

Wonderfully silky and smooth, our babywearing professionals often describe our bamboo as a SECOND SKIN. It’s thicker than our cotton and our silk, so it’s perfect for carrying newborn babies

If you or someone you know has some sewing skills, we’d encourage you to make your own Baby Wrap for the simple reason that it’ll give you so much more personal pleasure when you finally carry your baby in it.

Once you’ve decided to get sewing, you’ll find there are a number of extremely well-made tutorials on the internet – some of them based on actual Colimaçon material!

We can’t give you the whole list here because new tutorials are constantly being posted online. If you want more specific advice on your project you’re welcome to contact us, preferably by phone.

Fabrics made from bamboo fibers prevent sweating and are 4 to 5 times more absorbent than cotton. They allow the skin to breathe, and absorb any excess moisture. Additionally, bamboo fabric is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, UV protective, and is amazingly soft to the touch. This fabric is also wrinkle resistant, so it’s very low maintenance.

Some might feel daunted by the high percentage of bamboo, but the exceptional quality of OUR bamboo fabric makes it very appealing. A number of talented seamstresses have tested it and say that it sews very much like our cotton fabric, differing only slightly in that it slides a little bit.
