"This sling is named for a friend who had this to say...

Anike, or Arniquet, is a village in the south of Haiti, close to the city of Les Cayes and not far from Port Salut. It’s lush green with dirt roads where you’ll see villagers walking or riding dirt bikes each day to the mache. Mangoes and coconuts grow on trees. Friends and neighbors stop by to say hello and kiss your cheek as a sign of respect. In the town, there’s a covered stage and dance floor where bands play kon pa and people dance. ⁣

My husband lived there with his grandparents until he was six when his parents were settled enough in the US to bring him and his brother here. When Jude thinks of his childhood, he remembers women using slings to carry their children (and sometimes their vegetables) as they walked to the mache. ⁣

Someday, our children will visit Anike with us. In the meantime, we incorporate as much of their Haitian culture into our lives as we can. From books to art to maps to music to spending time with family and friends. ⁣

Anike is more than a “soul sling.” It’s a connection to our family’s heritage."
