Jacquard weaving is the new trend in wearing our toddlers. And we understand the craze of the parents: unlike cross twill weaving, jacquard allows to obtain a rich variety of patterns. Remember that the first scarves were only plain or striped, while today there is no more limit! In addition to the motifs, the interweaving of the threads of the weaving in jacquard brings a unique relief which gives a lot of nobility to the fabrics of the carrier.
The patterns of the baby carrier
To highlight the jacquard, Chimparoo has developed 6 designs from two themes that bring a special symbolism, that of the love we carry to children!
Ginkgo Biloba pattern
The Ginkgo Biloba is a sacred tree in the Orient and especially in Japan, as it is a symbol of love and longevity. Because it can live over 1,000 years, it is ideal for honoring the tradition of planting a tree at birth. Moreover, it represents the unity between the opposites and is a source of hope. It would have appeared before the dinosaurs and would have survived all the upheavals that the planet has lived since! It is therefore the dean of all the trees and that is why we chose it for the portage of our toddlers.
Contrary to a widespread idea, the Dandelion is far from being a harmful plant: in addition to its many uses in the garden, in soft medicine and in the kitchen, it has a very strong symbolism.Because it is a spring herb, Dandelion evokes the rediscovered sun, fertility and novelty.Think of the ease he has to sow, it's almost miraculous when you think about it! Moreover, it is also said that this grass stimulates the spirits and that it helps to realize the vows.By wearing this superb pattern in babywearing, you help to restore all its nobility to the Dandelion.
Mei Tai FIT - See some of the images in the media section.
The term mei-tai refers to a type of Asian-based carrier. Pronounced may tie, its meaning in Chinese (Cantonese) is Mei (MEH) : carried on the shoulders and Tai (DAI) : carrying strap. Its simplicity is what makes it so popular. There are many variations in existence, and the basic common element is a waist-belt and shoulder straps attached to a central panel where baby is seated. The carrier adapts to a wide range of body types. The Chimparoo Mei Tai (MEH DAI) has a number of unique characteristics: soft woven cotton twill, system of lateral adjustments for a newborn, seat adjustments to accommodate a baby younger than 2-3 months of age, a sleep hood, and padding in the waist, shoulder straps and under the thighs. All these elements make an ideal carrier for the newborn. The carrier is certified for use with a child weighing 7-35 lbs, and thus can be used for as long as you feel comfortable. Your child can be worn in 4 positions: on the front facing in, on the front facing out, on the hip and on the back. The Chimparoo Mei Tai is often considered a hybrid, the compromise between a woven wrap and a soft structured carrier such as the TREK or MULTI 2.0. Made for both men and women, with a look that is both urban and natural. It owes its cozy feel, comfort and support to the same supple, lightweight cotton twill found in our woven wraps. Lightweight and simple to use, it is compact and easy to master. You will find it indispensable, both inside and outside the home. The long shoulder straps will accommodate most body types and allow the carrier to be worn outside your coat.
The Mei Tai that you will receive can be different than the picture. These baby carriers are handmade in Canada. They are beautiful in all cases.
