I'm so very excited about this! I've been wanting a rainbow ring sling again for several years -- it's what I think of as my signature sling -- and when Alisa from Tekhni Wovens said she'd work with me on one, I jumped at the chance. The design is of stylized DNA strands, each a little different from the next, and because of the way the pattern repeats, each sling will have slightly different designs on the rails. DNA means many things to me: my degree is in biology, and I started babywearing because it enabled me to parent in a way that made the most biological sense. Our DNA is a continuous link not just to our ancestors, but to all of life on Earth. It makes us unique, but it also joins us to each other. It makes us a family regardless of direct genetic relationships.
The fabric is a jacquard woven with a 55% cotton and 45% Repreve blend. Repreve is made from 100% recycled water bottles. It's very strong and durable, and adds cushiness to the fabric without making it warm to wear. Recommended from newborn to preschool and beyond.
The rainbow, Spectrum, is a joyful gradation from red to violet, with subtle warp changes that pleat beautifully. Terra, a rainbow of neutrals, reflects the colors of Earth, and of humanity. To me, they represent hope, and what is good in the world.
A new twist on the age-old practice of babywearing, Tekhni brings style and fresh beauty to your everyday.
We feature wraparound slings in a variety of designs, colors and blends, with new offerings added on a regular basis.
