GOLD RINGS

Girasol Diamond and Herringbone Weave wraps are instantly distinguishable; their geometric patterns are striking and are wonderful visual additions to a striped or two-tone wrap. We also find they have a subtle stretch to them compared to the regular twill weave. 

The gathered shoulder design allows the fabric to spread across your back and shoulder for comfortable distribution of weight. Two aluminum rings are sewn in, to create a safe mechanism for easy tightening and quick release, and can carry a baby up to 35 pounds. Aluminum extruded rings are safe and seamless, and sewn permanently into the carrier. In no time, you will learn all the little nuances to ensure a perfect fit, every time.

Girasol wraps are all 100% cotton and sturdy yet blankety soft once broken in; a firm favourite in the babywearing community! These wraps are handwoven by a fair-trade co-operative in Guatamala, who have nearly 30 years experience in producing high quality baby wraps and carriers at fair prices. Girasol weavers specialise in diagonal-weave which gives their carriers excellent elasticity, yet prevents them from stretching out of shape. You can be confident on the quality of thread; only pure, untreated cotton is used, with no pre-bleaching or chemical finishes.

  • Gathered shoulder offers control over weight distribution.
  • Carrier may be used from birth through toddlerhood and offers front and hip carry positions.
  • Compact and convenient, ring slings are easy to bring along or pack.
  • Fabric ends are tapered and hems finished. Aluminum extruded rings are sewn in.

100% Cotton is never bleached. Dyeing and finishing processes use no chemical finishes, formaldehyde, halogen-organic compounds, aromatic amines or brighteners. Ring slings are easy to care for and may be washed in hot water, tumble or line-dried. We recommend washing in a mesh laundry bag to protect the rings and your washing machine.

A Note on Handwoven Fabrics

Girasol fabric is handwoven on traditional looms in Guatemala. Due to the highly-specialized hand-weaving technique, it is common for Girasols to have small irregularities in their fabric, such as small weavers knots, occasional skipped threads in the design, or slightly loose pieces of yarn called "pulls." These cosmetic variances make each ring sling one-of-a-kind and have no effect on the safety or quality of the carrier. If you have any questions or concerns about these details, or wish for more clarification on a carrier you are considering or have purchased, please contact us so we may further assist you. If you order a Girasol from our online shop, it is with the assumption that you understand and accept the nature of the handwoven fabric.

Sizing

All our Girasol Ringslings are approximately 80 in length, but please allow for variances within a few inches. We find that this length works well for most people and can easily be hemmed, should you find the tail to be too long.
