"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break."
Many believe that this ancient Chinese proverb means that there is an intangible link between parents and the child who is meant to be a part of their family.
In November, for National Adoption Awareness Month, we wanted to celebrate with adoptive families.
Tigress “A Red Thread", is a 100% cotton wrap, with a natural warp and mercerized bright red. Loomstate, it is 290gm2.
A Red Thread wraps and wears similarly to our other mercerized Tigress wraps. It breaks in fairly quickly and easily, after a first wash and iron. It is suitable for all wrappers and wrappees.
Tigress A Red Thread will be listed on our website, www.carislings.com, on Wednesday, November 26th between 12 and 12:30 pm ET.
A Red Thread wrap will come packaged in one of our handmade boho totes.
We welcome you to Cari Slings.
We are a small family business located in North Carolina, creating and manufacturing high quality, boutique style machine woven wraps.
All our products are woven and finished in the US, and we strive to keep our products and labor as local to us as possible. We are working closely with two different mills to provide a variety of wrap designs and hopefully soon, fiber choices. One of mills local to us, keeping with our desire and commitment for growing and sustaining our local economy.
Our wraps are woven solely with natural fibers and we strive to work closely with our mills to create unique, quality textiles that can be handed down to your children's children.
The name Cari Slings is a tribute to my Caribbean heritage. I was born and raised on the island of Trinidad, an island known for its gorgeous landscapes, diversity, culture and food. It is our desire to fuse our Asian and West Indian cultures with American textiles and babywearing practices.
I am mother to three young children, and my husband and I have worn our children since birth almost 9 years ago. Our philosophy is that babywearing is so much more than simply wearing your child. It's a lifestyle, one of keeping our children and family close to our hearts, through our parenting and life choices.
I love and support handmade goods and work at home mothers, for I am one myself. For the past five years, I have been designing and creating handmade garments.
Cari Slings is a combination of my love for babywearing and textiles.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
