Just like the spring – the team at yako yako is slowly waking up as well. And even though cold weather seems to be having a comeback, we have managed to get great pics of our newest wrap from the merino collection. This photoshoot was extra special because the pics were captured in our grandmother’s yard. She often talked about how women used to wear their babies during her time and she even showed us how it was done.
To us, the rustic red colour of the merino yarns breathes tradition and evokes folk elements, so we went ahead and played with it a little.
Find it in the heart woven wrap is crafted from superwash merino, weaved into cotton at 50%/50% ratio, which makes it strong but soft and comfy too, with its medium thickness.
The weaving density comes to app 340g/m2 post wash.
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”.
