Girasol Rainbow Baby is a unique artisan piece that is handwoven on traditional looms in Guatemala. Designed for me by the amazing Kalleigh Designs, this is a true rainbow made to celebrate the babies that bring light and color back into our lives after a loss. And it’s just a stunning rainbow to wrap any baby!
This is woven with a red (rojo puro) weft. Weft refers to the threads woven through the width of the wrap and can affect the hue of the rainbow stripes. Rainbow Baby is woven with a twill weave which means the weft is very subtle and the solid rainbow stripes are plain. It means the colors of the rainbow are bolder.
This graphic will help you identify your base size – the wrap length you would use for full length carries.
You can choose to get your base size for the widest range of carries, or a shorter length for shorter carries with fewer layers. 2 sizes smaller than your base size is a good size for still having a lot of options if you prefer less fabric.
Or get any size you prefer.
RAINBOW BABY SLING BAG
You can also choose to buy a bag made from the Rainbow Baby fabric. It is a roomy bag to fit everything you need and can be worn cross body or on one shoulder.
The strap uses sling rings so it’s adjustable to your perfect strap length.
Girasol’s sling bag is a wonderful alternative to the traditional diaper bag for all parents. Incredible space to take everything with you with room for diapers and clothes, wet wipes, water bottles and much more. There are no hard straps and pinching buckles.
The bag has two inside pockets that close with a zipper: one is 26 cm wide, the other 16 cm. There is also a compartment for a bottle. The bag can be closed with a button, which is covered with the matching fabric, and a loop.
Width: 42 cm
Length: app. 43 cm
Length of strap: 155 cm
Width of strap: 19 cm
Your bag will be made from the same material as the Rainbow Baby wraps. See an example of the sling bag (shown in a different wrap design) in the photos above. You can also see a picture of the inside of the bag.
Girasol Rainbow Baby is easy to use and care for
This wrap is 100% cotton so it is easy to care for and does not need babying. The Girasol Rainbow Baby wrap can be machine washed, may be ironed and occasionally – if haste is required – even dried in tumble-driers.
Girasol Rainbow Baby– different color rails
Because of the rainbow stripes, Rainbow Baby makes it easy to keep track of your rails – meaning that you always know which side of the wrap is which and can tell if it had become twisted.
You can wrap with either the Reds on top or the Violet, and can see whether the wrap has been twisted by whether that color remains on top as you bring it around your body. This helps you get a smooth and even wrap carry that will stay comfortable for hours with even heavy toddlers!
Woven Wraps Compared to Other Baby Carriers
Woven wraps are the best way to carry your baby close from newborn through toddler so you never have to size up and they never outgrow it!
They are always a custom fit so there’s no adjustments when a different caregiver needs to use it or when your baby grows. No attachments or accessories, no buckles or weight bearing seams – just beautiful hand-woven fabric for the most comfort and versatility.
You are sure to love the convenience of hands free comfort and a content baby!
