Some more photos from ours photoshoot with Ольга Шулика and few words about perfect Minako.
Minako signature Gem Spirit Quartz 64% Eguptian cotton, 36% bourette silk, density 328 g/m2
I was lucky to see this wonderful wrap on Moscow slingobranch, where Elena Moskaleva shown new Minako. My son’s weight is about 12.5 kg, but I still wear him 3-4 hours time to time. So, I couldn’t not to try this plump and elastic wrap. Very soft, bouncy, with perfect support. I used it few hours, and the first hour I didn’t feel the weight of my two-years son, especially when he tucked his hands into wrap. But Gem Spirit Quartz needs tight wrap. Suitable for all seasons, I wasn’t hot even in three layers of fabric in spite of summer hot in Moscow, because of wrap’s perfect spongy. And I agree with Olga, it feels like soft cushion on shoulders =))) Great toddler wrap, I think, it’s good as long, as shorty, good for Kengoroo and Rucksack, and very good for Hip Cross Carry and Front Cross Carry, including the variation with ring on the back. By the way, Gem Spirit Quartz is perfect with ring-finishes because of it’s thickness. Can be the one wrap =))
Minako Naomi Vibrant, unreleased with bourret and merino blend.
Just ideal for moms, who loves wool even in summer (as I). Perfect colors, bright and noble. Very easy to wrap, I prefer front carry, but I wraped perfect Backcarry without problems. Great support, bouncy and very soft. Merino allows wear it in summer day, because it gives elastic and good thermoregulation, but not swelter. I used it in Double Hammock,so my upper body was wrapped in fabric with wool, when it was +28 and sun outdoor, but it isn’t hot absolutely! I didn’t expect so good support from silk, but bourret is really toddlerfriendly. At the same time Naomi Vibrant can be used for babies, may be not for newborn, but from 2-3 month correctly.
Sum up, I was pleasantly surprised by bourret propertys, it soft and gives good support. From the first touch you feel, that the feedstock, used in Minako wraps is really good quality and expensive. One of the best in babywearing, I tried.( Collapse )
