You may have caught a glimpse of our new design in the weaver shop sneak peak or in one of the photos from the blogger Dedinská mať.
So why the City? I have liked the idea since the very moment Anita Stefanik – a textile designer and interior stylist, living in Stockholm came up with it two years ago. This is the city I fell in love with instantly, in a country that gave my understanding of design and aesthetics a whole new dimension.
And so I sent the initial mockup to my good friend and a graphic designer – Zuzana Smolkova, who gladly took on the challenge and created a unique metropolitan design for yako yako. According to her own words, this has been the longest project in her career. It took a year from the beginning of the design process until the first wrap was born.
The incorporation of this pattern was tough to crack for our weavers as well, and mistakes were a part of the manufacturing process. The huge amount of struggle, do-overs, consulting and of course patience was all worth it. Fate stepped in and this dreamy wrap made it just in time to travel with us to the city that never sleeps - New York.
Wrap The City of Dreams is crafted from 100% supercombed GOTS cotton and comes to 300g/m2 pre-wash.
It’s perfect for newborns as well as bigger babies.
The wrap in this constitution and colorway is weaved in extreme limited quantity and will not be restocked.
Prices: SIZE 4 – 130€, SIZE 5 – 140€, SIZE 6 – 150€, SIZE 7 - 160€
A brochure containing wrapping manuals and a cotton pouch with yy logo are a part of every order.
We founded the yako yako brand because we believe in babywearing and its benefits.
The idea came up during our stay in Sweden where we live temporarily. It is the most inspirational country for us, but the major muse is our daughter Rebeka. She is also the author of the first design – the handprints on the wrap First touch were weaved according to her hand prints taken in her 4 months. The name “yako yako” has been derived from her first sounds or words she made while sucking a pacifier.
And who are us – mother Martina, her other ME and Rebeka’s dad Daniel, his mother Anita, the absolvent of textile academy, artist and interior designer living in Sweden.
Behind the graphic design of yako yako is Peter, a former graffiti artist and founder of graphic studio profigrafik.sk. He follows a motto: “Less is more and more is less”.
