From birth to toddler
Due to the rainy season in Guatemala, it takes longer for the yarns to dry after dyeing. Without yarn the weavers are unable to continue their work as planned.
Therefore the production is slow at the moment. Thank you for your understanding.
The MySol is an alternative to or additional product for baby slings
that allows users to safely, comfortably and ergonomically carry babies
from birth to toddler in front of the stomach and on the back.
The design is based on traditional Asian baby slings but its
thought-through details mean that it also adapts to modern needs.
The MySol is made from two layers of high-quality cross-body sling
fabric that nestles like a second skin around the baby being carried and
