Soul Slings Ring Sling Sky Ikat. These handwoven cotton ring slings are supportive without too much bulk. They have excellent grip and are very breathable and light. With a couple of washes, they get soft enough for tender newborn skin and remain sturdy enough to comfortably carry toddlers.
Soul ring slings are comfortable, fashionable and affordable baby carriers from India. Their generous length and simple gathered shoulder ensure that one size fits all. In fact, one sling can be used to wear your baby from birth onwards till 15 kg or so! Simple to use, compact enough to fit in your handbag and easy to maintain, Soul slings are made from 100% natural fibres.
Ikat is a unique textile dyeing technique. Traditional weavers use a painstakingly slow resist-dyeing process, in which bundles of threads are bound together with a tight waterproof wrapping to restrict spreading. Either the warp or weft is then dyed to create beautiful patterns. The bindings can be altered and may be dyed again with multiple colours to produce elaborate, multi-coloured patterns. When the dyeing is finished the bindings are removed and the threads are woven into fabric. 'Double Ikat' involves dyeing both the warp and the weft, and is considered the finest form of ikat, requiring the most precise skills and patience. Tremendous amounts of labour and experience are required, resulting in a high-quality, luxurious and unique fabric.

* Please wash and iron your Soul carrier once before use. Wash it separately for the first few washes as the colours may bleed a little.
* Sizes mentioned are before washing. Please note that the wraps are generously sized, as there will be shrinking for the first few washes.
* Soul fabrics may show colour variations, loose threads, tiny slubs, snags or unevenness that are characteristic of natural fibre textiles. These variations should in no way be considered flaws or defects as they do not affect the functionality of the carrier. It is the nature of the fabric and these imperfections highlight its natural beauty and uniqueness.

Previous SSC and ring sling user with our first; this was my first wrap product (other than failed attempts with a moby wrap). This carrier has been comfy from day one with our 3-5 week old. Much more adjustable/customizable fit than anything we previously owned. Colour is a bit more denim than expected from photo but it’s a great neutral shade. This is definitely my go-to carrier.
I bought this carrier as a gift for my dear friend who is expecting. She picked it out herself, though I likely would have picked it for her too because it is easy to use for those new to babywearing. Lovely construction, colour, and customer service!!
What happens when your favorite wrap (lisca) and your favorite carrier have a passionate affair and produce perfection?
It’s soft, it holds, color is perfect, comfort goes beyond words.
This is my favorite carrier by far.
If you are just going to get one carrier, This.Is.It.
Beautiful and easy to care for. Washed it right out of the box and it’s softer than I expected for its weight. Finally went for a good, comfortable and long walk.
I am a fan of wrapping my babies when they are brand new and then usually move to buckles as they get older. This carrier is a nice blend of the two- quicker but still cozy and more comfortable than full buckles in my opinion. Adjustability is nice too!
The Integra Carrier is amazing for the warmer weather. It’s so lightweight and easy to put on. Stores nicely in a diaper bag as it folds up small. Highly recommend it! Using it for traveling at the moment and it’s made life much easier with our six month old. The only thing I wish is it had a little travel pouch to pack it in or a pocket to fold itself into. Great purchase overall.
I love my wraps. They are beautiful. Allie does such a great job of describing and walking through the details, selection and care for wraps (and all her products) and babywearing to help make the perfect selection for me. Her website is so helpful, as was her caring and prompt responses to my inquiries. I love the philosophy, the shop that has heart and soul. Shopping was easy and fun and informative.
The wraps came fast and were beautiful and as described.
Allie kindly and promptly accommodated a change in my order prior to sending.
I have bookmarked Little Zen One, and will have this shop and Allie as my first pick for my, and my newborn twins, needs now and into the future.
Thank you, again, Allie.
We were already big fans of Tula carriers, having been gifted a Free to Grow, which we've used pretty much every day since our LO was about 6 weeks old. We bought the Explore due to the addition of a front-facing option, which the FTG doesn't, as our LO is growing and fascinated by the outside world, having her in front-facing eliminates a lot of neck-straining on her part, as she is not big enough yet for back carry. Our verdict: it's awesome! The front-facing option works well, as well as the facing in option for naps; the print and fabric are gorgeous, and the biggest, most pleasant surprise was how COMFORTABLE it is. The added padding on the shoulders makes a big difference when I'm carrying LO for hours, and the fit seems somehow more ergonomic in terms of the weight distribution of the baby. I can carry her for much longer with no pain, which is a big plus in my eyes. It's almost eclipsed the FTG, except for long naps - the FTG has wider sides, which allows LO to keep her hands tucked inside, which seems soothing to her. The Explore has shallower sides due to the cut-away needed for front-facing carry. Nevertheless, it's a total delight.
I enjoy this sling as it is easy to put on while home alone with the little one and the head rest/hood portion is amazing. Looking forward to using this item in the warmer weather outside...for now it is great to use indoors.
I purchased this very close to Christmas and the staff were efficient and prompt in shipping this so it arrived asap. The DidyKlick is a wonderful carrier and is on par with a lot of custom carriers I've seen before Didy started to make this model. Great fabric, lovely colour and customized fit make this a great carrier for beginner to advanced babywearers!
This is the sleekest buckle carrier - it’s perfect for travel or anyone who wants something that doesn’t take up a lot of space.
I absolutely love my Dydimos DidyKlick carrier, it is super easy to put on (after Allie showed me how), it is light, comfortable and I get compliments every single time I wear it. The little hat is the bets as well, it stays on and my baby can wear it while she is in the carrier.
