Well, Origin is in fact “flat”, too, and very heavy (but in contrast to Gemini it is obvious from the first touch that this is a toddler piece par excellence); moreover it is quite rough to touch – therefore it does not slide – like at all (it came to us brand new and not broken in at all). But again, to my surprise, it took only a few tries by 3 other wearers and it was suddenly much smoother – I can imagine that after it finishes its tester tour, it will become a cuddly sweetheart.
Did I also say that according to my experience most linen wraps are not elastic enough? Once again, Origin surprised me how wonderfully elastic it felt in the carry! While tying it, I had an only problem – that it does not slide (me complaining about a grippy wrap? yup, this was a little bit too much even for my taste). But after you finish tightening it (which was not surprisingly that difficult – maybe because the wrap is so elastic), your toddler would probably need scissors to get out of it – it is a true “toddler prison”! Do I need to mention how supportive the wrap is? I am quite sure that it would have no problem carrying several elephants. But what really blew my mind is that it wrinkled just minimally, even though it was not broken in at all! Same as Gemini – a wrap from a whole new world that really changed basically everything I ever thought of “flat” and heavy wraps with linen.
