The Making Of
Artipoppe woven wraps and ring slings are designed, woven and hand-finished in the Netherlands. Our passion is to create high quality babywearing products that are functional, fashionable and luxurious. We strive to compose items that you will be proud to own and use, with the knowledge that each piece is crafted with the utmost safety, care and quality from start to finish, and beyond.
The Artipoppe design process is uncompromising when envisioning patterns that are beautiful, stylish and perhaps most importantly, allow for the fabric to naturally mold to a child’s caress and help distribute weight comfortably on the wearer. From there, weaving techniques, fibres and color plays come together to create the final artistic piece.
Yarns and fibres
Woven wraps and ring slings are intimate accessories that carry your most precious cargo. Which is why we strive to make our products as ethically, and with the highest quality of materials, as possible. For us, quality and luxury is in the details. We handpick all the yarns that are woven into Artipoppe products. We pay special attention to specific expertise for different yarns and fibres from around the world. Such as, cashmere from Mongolia, wool from Scotland, merino from New Zealand and cotton from Egypt. We pay close attention to all of our suppliers, and their suppliers. For example, we prefer to use merino from New-Zealand, where mulesing is not a common practice. Most of the yarns we purchase are spun and processed in Italy.
Our manufacturing process leverages the fine craftsmanship of the weavers that we work closely with at each step to ensure that our products are of the highest quality achievable. Once the fabric is woven, each item is hand-finished and passed through a rigorous quality check. Artipoppe woven wraps and ring slings are woven and hand-finished in the Netherlands.
The high quality of Artipoppe wraps and ring slings means that they are long-lasting, and could even become family heirlooms. Which is why we have started offering a Spa service to help care for and protect items that withstand daily, rigorous use.
Squares and Capes
While many of Artipoppe capes are made in the Netherlands, some of our scarves and capes are made in Florence, Italy, the centre of fine woven woolens since the Middle Ages.
