By now you would have seen our travelling Wildwood wraps and if you have wondered how you can get hold of one then you need to keep reading.
Our newest design, Wildwood started life as a mature lime (Tilia) tree and has been transformed into a beautiful branching pattern which can be worn with the 'branches' going up to the sky, or as 'roots' reaching the ground.
We wanted to create something which was from nature but represented the connections we all make with each other throughout our own journeys in the babywearing community. The branching pattern was perfect, it can be found in maths, in science and in art. It's almost everywhere around us from the magnificent rivers of the world, the branches of a great oak tree or the blood vessels which give us all life. It also perfectly symbolises the wonderful community of caregivers who are raising the next generation of adventurers.
We are going to be offering these wraps as a pre-order in the new year! Wildwood comprises of an organic luxury Egyptian combed cotton warp, with a tussah silk weft. The pre-order will be available in the colours of our travelling tester; ecru cotton and navy tussah BUT there will also be another option!
Because this run of Wildwood is a pre-order it means we can offer a larger range of sizes so you will be able to order from a size 3 to a size 9, and we'll also offer ring slings and shawls.

Rowan Bay has been born from a passion for babywearing, a deep love of nature and all things wild which you will see reflected throughout Rowan Bay's designs and ethos.
Set up by Ecologist and Wildlife Gardener - Larissa, who has worn both her children over the past 10 years - Rowan Bay is the result of combining her babywearing experience, and interest in design to start a new and exciting adventure - creating luxury woven wraps, manufacturing them here in the United Kingdom.
Rowan Bay is still in it's infancy but like all good things, it takes a lot of love and time. The first line is currently being produced and will be released later this spring. For summer 2017 you can look forward to blends in linen and in the Sorbus design and by autumn you could be wrapping with a fantastic woollen blend. This is just a snippet of what is come!
