THIS PRE-ORDER IS CLOSED. Girasol Ocean Rainbow is being woven and will be delivered in November with FREE US Shipping. European customers will receive direct shipping from Germany.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The pictures are a guess at how it will look as this exact one has never been woven. The pictures show a wrap I had made by a weaver who is no longer available so we are recreating it with Girasol and the colors will be slightly different.
A simple and lovely rainbow is reflected three times in this pretty blue woven wrap, a colorful shock of color from the deep. Ocean blue provides the perfect backdrop for the 3 rainbows, making it cheerfully bright while easily complementing most outfits.
This wrap is thin, strong and easy-to-use immediately. It is a twill weave and for any wrap geeks out there, the weight of the fabric is approximately 215.84 g/m² (grams per square meter), making this a light wrap that is easy to use.
100% cotton makes for an easy to use, comfortable, and “easy care” wrap that can be machine washed.
For wrapping a newborn through 3 years or so.
The graphic in the sizing tab 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.
Ocean Rainbow also available as a roomy Sling Bag
The sling bag has a long strap that adjusts with sling rings so the strap can be as long or short as you want it. It can fit ANYway you want it to.
The bag has two zipping inside pockets: one is 26 cm wide, the other is 16 cm. There is also a pocket for a bottle. The bag closes with a button, which is covered with the matching fabric, and a loop.
Width: 42 cm
Length: approximately 43 cm
Strap length: 155 cm
Strap width: 19 cm
If you order a bag, it will be made from Ocean Rainbow. In the images above you can see an example of a Sling Bag made from a different (rainbow) wrap. That’s just to show you what the bag looks like (inside and out).
Girasol Ocean Rainbow is a handwoven artisan piece
This wrap was handwoven in Guatemala under fair trade practices, making it an ethical consumer choice and perfect for those who wish to support artisans. It is keeping weavers working and making an income during the global pandemic.
Girasol Ocean Rainbow is easy to use and care for
This wrap is 100% cotton so it is easy to care for and does not need babying. Ocean Rainbow can be machine washed, may be ironed and occasionally – if haste is required – even dried in tumble-driers.
Ocean Rainbow Girasol – different color rails
Because there are rainbows along the rails (edges), you will have one red rail at the top of the wrap. The bottom of the wrap is indigo.
This difference helps you tell which side of the wrap you are working with so you know if you have accidentally twisted it behind your back. And that way 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!
You can choose a size 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 for full length carries (see the sizing tab) or a shorter wrap for shorter, faster carries that have fewer layers. Whichever way you go, you are sure to love the convenience of hands free comfort and a content baby!
