Our Story

Welcome to Cari Slings.

We are a small family business located in North Carolina, creating and manufacturing affordable, beautiful, geeky jacquard woven wraps.

All our products are woven and finished in the US, and we strive to keep our products and labor as local to us as possible. We are working closely with our local mill to keep with our desire and commitment for growing and sustaining our local economy and to provide a variety of wrap designs and fiber choices.  

Our wraps are woven solely with natural fibers and we strive to work closely with our mill to create unique, quality textiles that can be handed down to your children's children.

The name Cari Slings is a tribute to my Caribbean heritage. I was born and raised on the island of Trinidad, an island known for its gorgeous landscapes, diversity, culture and food. It is our desire to fuse our Asian and West Indian cultures with American textiles and babywearing practices.

I am mother to three young children, and my husband and I have worn our children since birth 10 years ago. Our philosophy is that babywearing is so much more than simply wearing your child. It's a lifestyle, one of keeping our children and family close to our hearts, through our parenting and life choices. 

Cari Slings is a combination of my love for babywearing and textiles.

Thank you for joining us on this journey.
