A little while back, Tula contacted me to draw them a little promotional piece for their upcoming woven wrap line. As a huge fan of Tula, I was so giddy to help out, probably one of my favorite jobs so far! The wrap I drew for the promotional drawing was Mockingbird, so naturally I was eager to try it and happy to be a tester.
I’ve never been too much of a wrapper (I have terrible rhythm. ha! That’s what happens when I try to be funny…), but recently I’ve really started to grow more interested in a few unique wraps. Of course my little boy is a giant almost two year old now, so I’m definitely looking for more supportive wraps. As soon as Mockingbird arrived, I put Odin up on my back for a walk. First wrap job and he felt so secure and comfortable right away. I’ve tried a 100% cotton wrap before and ended up selling it because I wasn’t a fan. The weave must be a little thicker on the Tula Wovens, because I didn’t feel like it was digging at all like my previous cotton wraps had done. I normally prefer my buckle Tula but this one was definitely equally nice on my shoulders. It was also nowhere near as grippy as the previous cotton wraps I’ve tried. Super smooth and actually much easier to wrap with. Being fairly new to wrapping, the gliding but grippy bit is a huge bonus for me. Toddlers are wild little things and don’t like to sit still while their mamas tie and re-tie a carrier, so it really is huge.
About 75% of my wardrobe is a black or neutral, so not only is this wrap super comfy but it also matches everything that I wear! I also live on a little island known for it’s history with whales and the little whale tail-esque design is perfect for us. I’ve loved this wrap design since I first drew it out and now that I’ve played with it a bit, I love it even more. So gorgeous. Beautiful work, Tula!
