If you’re first entering the world of woven wraps, you will find two different kinds – handwoven, and machine woven. Both are wonderful additions to your stash, and both are safe for baby and you, but there is something about handwoven wraps that are simply glorious.
If you are not familiar by now, Kush Textiles only produces handwoven products, wraps, ring slings and accessories created by highly skilled artisans in Guatemala. These artisans have perfected their craft and have likely had it passed down to them from their parents and grandparents. If you’re interested in learning more about the craft itself and one particular weave, check out our blog post about it here.
If you’re diving into about handwoven wraps, you may check out our website and think “What makes these so special?” or “why are these more expensive that a big companies’ machine woven brand?”
Handwovens are so special and expensive because they are crafted in small batches and each made by hand. No two handwoven wraps will ever be 100% exactly the same. And that’s the beauty in it. They are exclusive, and elusive.
Kush Textiles also runs under the principles of Fair Trade, always paying the artisans a fair price for their labors, thus raising the prices compared to a brand where everything is done by machine and they pay workers less.
With handwovens, for some mysterious reason, (it must be all the love put into them by the artisans), they just seem to wrap nicer, be bouncier, “Kushier”, and all around more supportive and lovable. Personally my handwovens are my favorites in my stash, and if you ask anyone else, my money would be on you receiving the same answer.
Kush Textiles is so proud to be offering such a beautiful and high quality products that you can use every day for years to come, we are stringent with our safety standards and look over every piece, so that when they come to you, they are perfect. Check out our handwoven products here.
