Shabd Linen Shibori. Square. Quadrilateral perfection. A dramatic grid of blue and white. Some lines bleed and blur, others are sharp and precise. Together, the effect is sophisticated, timeless, and utterly of-the-moment. They use only the finest Belgian linens in colors suitable for both mothers and fathers. Naturally antibacterial, cool to wear, and perfect for all climates, linen is also easy to care for and becomes softer and stronger over time. Handcrafted from a single layer of linen, each sling is lightweight, breathable, and adjustable. All Sakura Bloom slings are machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, fully reversible, designed to fit all body shapes and sizes, and easy to use with newborns and toddlers. Each comes with a detailed booklet with instructions, tips, and many photos. Whether a special treat for yourself or a gift for a friend or loved one, each of our slings is beautifully packaged and sent with care. Hand dyed in Brooklyn and sewn in Massachusetts.
