Coco-N Barbarian – review 2

Coco-N Barbarian - review
Coco-N Barbarian I introduced you to a rather interesting tester that I had land here last week. Barbarian is one of the first releases to come from Coco-N Fashion in Russia and you may recognise the owner as she also runs Mokosh. The wrap Barbarian is a quad blend of 65% Egyptian long-staple cotton, 15% ...

Coco-N Barbarian prototype arrives 1

Coco-N Barbarian prototype arrives
I am an unashamed brand tart in many ways. Not because I want to be all over the place when it comes to different wrap brands but because I am intensely curious about new designs, blends and developments in the babywearing world. I was really touched to be asked by a new company, Coco-N Babywearing ...

When you find your tribe

When you find your tribe
If I could turn back time (sorry if that landed you a Cher earworm) I would write my PhD thesis about the online communities and brands that are the wrapping world as I find the whole thing fascinating. Instead I’m doing something much more work applicable and making a few media shorts about it instead. ...

Sling Studio – Punk Greenday & Spots n Stripes Solent – reviews of sorts

Sling Studio - Punk Greenday & Spots n Stripes Solent - reviews of sorts
Time for some more reviews in brief because I’ve been lucky enough to holiday some beauties here recently and I just have to write about them. Here it’s the tale of two linen lovelies, Sling Studio’s Punk Greenday and Spots n Stripes Solent. When I was at Sling It recently Hilary of TigerPig Creations had ...

Sling Studio – Hackney Herringbone scrap to wrap – Reviews

Sling Studio - Hackney Herringbone scrap to wrap - Reviews
I introduced the Hackney Herringbones a couple of weeks ago and the amazing journey that went from pieces of scrap from Sling Studio into two beautiful wraps. In the intervening time Nikki sent me her Moss to compare with Heather. This review is going to be really hard to write because my goodness, it’s been an ...

Sling Studio wrap karma

Sling Studio wrap karma
I’m in the process of destashing (hollow laugh) but can’t resist a flutter on the odd dip, especially if it’s a Sling Studio one. Finding a SS high tussah silk wrap is a bit like a needle in a haystack and when one does appear, it’s gone within seconds on the buy/sell/trade market. I have ...

From scrap to wrap; the story of a Hackney Herringbone 1

From scrap to wrap; the story of a Hackney Herringbone
I don’t know whether this will be a review or a bit of a general happy ramble, probably the latter. It all started when I contacted Hilary at Tigerpig Creations about having some Sling Studio Punk Viv and Buzz Elixir made into a clutch and weekend pouch. Hilary is generally an all-round fabulous woman and ...

That Gorse is mine 3

That Gorse is mine
I have yet to try so many wraps but in my experience thus far I’ve had wraps that are beautiful but a pain in the arse to use, some that are pleasant all rounders, others that are lush. Then, very seldom, I’ve had wraps that have made my heart swoon.      I received one ...

I’ll babywear and I just don’t care

I'll babywear and I just don't care
  I have a serious case of the “sod-its” People say getting into high end babywearing is like going down a rabbit hole. For me it sings to all that I adore, beautiful fabrics, design, texture and holding my children closely.  I am unapologetic in my reverie of this hobby. Nay, obsession. Granted, a year ...
