Weird Slings Pardon my French

Composition: 50% bamboo viscose, 50% organic cotton Weight: 254 g/m² according to the manufacturer, 265 g/m² counted by us Size: long 6 (503 cm measured by us) Rucksack carry with Tibetian knotless finish Weird Slings is a "weird" younger sibling of the Polish brand Woven Bliss whose spiritual mother is the same lady, Eliza Jankowska. Woven Bliss wraps are elegant, with relatively subtle patterns and colourways and belong to the, let's say, middle class as to their price. Weird Slings should be their cheaper, more casual, "crazier" eko-bio-fairtrade alternative (similarly to Wild Slings and ROAR) - for example, the wraps are packed in polyester backpacks made out of recycled plastic bottles. I must say that the bulldogs, among other Weird Slings patterns (with the motto being "Be weird, like us!"), are probably the [...]

Moisha Zephyr Lollipop and Ocean

It has been quite some time since we last published an article about Moisha. Now we have double review for you - one that we had to drag from the deepest depths of our archive and the other one very recent, but coincidentally both in the Zephyr pattern and both with quite interesting blends. I think I do not need to say much about Moisha - if any introduction is needed, you can read some info about this brand in the last year's review of three all-cotton wraps, continue with another all-cotton one and end up with an article about three beautiful Filigrán prototypes. Zephyr Lollipop Composition: 41 % cotton, 39 % TEC merino, 20 % mercerized cotton Weight: 305 g/m² pre-wash Size: 6 Rear reinforced rebozo rucksack with candy cane chest belt This wrap suddenly appeared at our home basically by an "accident" and [...]

Lenny Up Carrier and Lenny Lamb Wraps Testing

It is almost unbelievable that it has been almost a year since we last published an article about such a wrap-carrier giant like Lenny Lamb. Moreover, it was about a carrier, Lenny Lamb Wrap Tai (and before that, in the absolute prehistory of this blog, even without a proper photoshoot, the adjustable Lenny Up carrier) but we have not officially tested any of their wraps yet! However, during this spring we had the opportunity to try several Lenny Lamb wraps and also to re-test the Lenny Up carrier. Lenny Lamb is a family company that was born in the head of one mum from Warsaw in 2007. She had nothing to wear her son in – it is hard to believe that there was no baby wrap manufacturer in Poland, such a babywearing superpower nowadays, by that time. It was this mum, Asia Bogdan, her [...]

Omnifera Inception 015, Morava Equinox and Skyfall Antares

It is impossible to dive deeper into our review archiver than this! Yes, your eyes work fine, the photos you see were taken in winter - not the last winter but winter 2017/18. At that time our blog did not even exist yet; however, Linda and I, we were already busy testing wraps and carriers and preparing first reviews. Do you want to know why we occasionally take so much time to publish an article? The answer is simple - the thing that takes the longest is the postprocessing of the photos (ufff) and to be honest - when there is no pressure we just let it be. :D These reviews were hidden under so much dust that we basically needed to use a virtual shovel to dig them up. But we did it, so here you go, yay! ;) There is no need to introduce Omnifera - it [...]

Sestrice Mega-testing

Linda and I, we are very fond of the Slovakian brand Sestrice, whether it comes to their wraps or their marvelous carriers (we already published a review of one of their wraps - Slncia Lollipop and also a very excited article about their Carrier and Carrier Plus wrap conversions). This time, it was not only one wrap, not only one carrier - but the whole "Sestricebox" with 5 wraps and 2 carriers! Also, it was a lucky coincidence that my friend lent me another Sestrice wrap around the time of the Sestricebox testing, therefore - hold on tight! - here you have a review of 6 wraps (!) and a retest of Carrier Plus. Right in the beginning, I must applaud to Sestrice just for the choice of testers in their test-box - from a newborn wrap to a toddler piece; different types of weave, different blends and designs [...]

Wild Slings Les ténèbres Nimbostratus and Nocturne La potion de la sorcière

What is the first thing that comes to your mind if a wrap is referred to as a "crazy thick blanket"? A high-weight Luluna? A puffy-weave Yaro? Something hand-woven? The first thing I think of is the brand of Wild Slings and their "towels", i.e wraps with "fluffy cloud cotton" as their manufacturer lovingly calls it. This fluffy cloud cotton is basically something like the good old chenille. Chenille is soft and hairy yarn that scarfs, sweaters or blankets are usually made of (in case it is still not clear, this is what Wikipedia says about chenille ;) ). I was not my first encounter with a WS "towel" - last autumn, I had the opportunity to try La forêt vierge Cumulus, when Iveta (Czech "Mrs. Wild Slings", the administrator of the Czech and Slovak WS/ROAR/DISO fan group and owner of many wonderful wraps from these [...]

Loktu She Silvan Flos and Bird Garden Amber

Silvan Flos Composition: 75% combed cotton, 25% Tencel  Weight: 375 g/m² (declared by the manufacturer), 365 g/m² (counted by us) Size: 4 Rucksack carry  Silvan is the newest (oficially released) Loktu She’s design. The Tencel pinkie Flos has two brothers, green all-cotton Alpinus and brown-yellow merino Fall. All of them are intended for toddler-wearing, which you can tell from their weight after all.  It is no secret that there are only a few wraps with Tencel I really liked - the green-pink Navis Amphitrite boats from Loktu She are one of these exceptions. Although they contain a loooot of Tencel, their fluffy weave compensates for its tendency to feel somehow "flat" on one's shoulders. The pink Silvan contains much less Tencel, but the weave seems denser and the wrap overall tougher than I would imagine it to be [...]

Mum’s Era Utah

Composition: 100 % cotton Weight: 239 g/m² Size: 7 (537 cm measured by us, tips 47 cm) Back wrap cross carry, Tibetian knotless finish Let me summarize my impression from this wrap right at the beginning: a Russian kitchen towel. Really, the way it looks, the way it feels in one's hands and I dare say the way it behaves in the carry, too. I signed up for testing of this wrap because I liked the blue colour and the "zig zag" pattern, but when I saw it live, I must say I was quite disappointed. Some wraps can surprise you - you would not find them interesting when not tied, maybe even a bit ugly, but once you see them in the carry, they magically transform into completely something else! This magic usually happens in case of wraps with vertical stripes, but nothing like [...]

Pabelle Slings Llama Biscotti, Blur Sorbet and Makia Porto

We introduced Pabelle Slings and their elegant Makia Ivory last autumn. Meanwhile, we had the opportunity to try several other Pabelle wraps - two all-cotton pieces, the violet Makia Calluna and the Christmas limited edition Kisses Under the Mistletoe, and another Christmas beauty, Eshweria Flaming Star with lurex, or the blue-black llamas Llama Wakatobi with tussah. None of the wraps disappointed us, on the contrary, they exceeded our expectations quite substantially - mainly the all-cotton ones (one of the factors being also their almost unbelievably low price) surprised and pleased us very much. But let's not get ahead of ourselves; first, we have a review of these three blended pieces for you! Llama Biscotti Composition: 54 % cotton, 41 % tussah, 5 % linen Weight: 369 g/m² (counted by us in a broken-in wrap) Size: 5 Rear rebozo reinforced rucksack carry [...]

NAMAK Night Flowers and Magical Song Hand Woven Wraps

Mrs Mária Nagy is simply a legend in the Czech-Slovak world of hand-woven wraps - once you enter it, it is virtually a must to own one NAMAK or at least try a few on your own shoulders. As I wrote in the article about the HamaMama wraps - every HW wrap is an original, usually custom-made and woven according to the requests of its future owner; therefore it is possible that its properties may not be the right fit for everyone. These two particular wraps were custom-made too, and hereby we want to thank their owner for the opportunity to try them. Right fit or not, in this case there is nothing to discuss - as to the properties, these two pieces are basically perfect, in (not only) my opinion. Night Flowers Composition: Tencel/bamboo Weight: 313 g/m² (counted by us) [...]
