Harete print (poi taniko) baby wrap
PLEASE NOTE I have just styled my baby in the sling for a shoot this is not the correct way to wear the wrap (she wouldn't settle in it properly)
PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE PURCHASING A SLING I WOULD ONLY EVER RECOMMEND BUYING A SLING FOR YOURSELF AND NOT AS A GIFT FOR SOMEONE ELSE ESPECIALLY IF THE MOTHER/FATHER IS UNAWARE OF HOW TO USE A BABY WRAP
You don't necessarily need to purchase this as a sling it can be used as a wrap (very long) but looks great in shoots and general wrapping when used with care to avoid the bulk end floating around on baby
I wanted to create a limited edition piece as a fundraiser for my aunty who is currently fighting breast cancer inspired by my daughter Harete (who loves to be held) I created a small amount of these baby wraps which I won't be repeating 100% of the profits are going to my aunty's cancer treatment. This product is a fundraising effort and I am well aware being a new mum how this product needs to be used correctly to be safe please read all my safety instructions before you purchase I have made every effort to attach care and safety instructions in garment I can't take personal responsibility or be liable if this is used incorrectly.
I have tested this product on my own baby and I stand by this wraps quality and again point out it is for a fundraising effort not profit if for any reason you are un happy with how your wrap is performing (after following all my guides) I am more then happy to fully refund your money once wrap is returned to us in store.
Being a decorative designer I wanted to create a print inspired by the birth of my daughter Harete Mical Mitai-Ngatai born 07/03/2019. I took inspiration from the Poi Taniko (Poi- a ball on the end of string used in kapahaka performance and Taniko- the Maori art discipline of twining). Layering the style of Poi Taniko on fabric as a literal illustration for her to hold on to her culture and what makes her unique ‘Kia ū ki to ahurea Māori e hine’
Be very aware that this wrap can be a hazard if not worn correctly I have uploaded photos and links to follow so you can see the correct ways to wear your baby wrap.If at any time you feel the fabric has been compromised discontinue use and do not give to someone else please dispose of carefully
Our wrap supports healthy hip development by ensuring the 'M-Position' which needs to be achieved in carrier
Your baby's knees should be bent up and in line with their belly button and gently spread to the sides (like a frog or koala bear). Their legs and dropped bottom will resemble a 'M' shape and baby's pelvis will slide to the front, and their back will be supported in a beautiful (and age appropriate) C shape curve.
Fabric - 95% cotton 5% elastane - please do not use any type of oil near carrier as it can compromise the elastic if at anytime you feel the fabric has been compromised discard use and do not give to some else. Fabric has been digitally printed with ink which doesn't leak if washed separately if for some reason you find this product an irritant on your baby discontinue use.

SIZE - ONE SIZE this is about 3.5 metres long and 20-50cm wide fit is depending on the wearer of course but you must insure the size can wrap baby tightly and be secured on you to fit
