We are committed to running a modern and responsible business with good care for nature, people and animals. Our jacquard fabrics are woven in Lithuania, the country where we have a team of workers creating our Zeitgeist Carriers also. All our workers earn fair wages and are being treated with respect and dignity. We source our raw materials solely from ethical producers that respect the environment and are working with nature instead of against it. We always search for options that are animal friendly and buy only mulesing free merino from our suppliers. All our products are checked and finished in the Netherlands under our own roof where they are also being carefully packaged and handed over to our couriers to be shipped to all corners of the world.

Always follow washing instructions on the tag. We recommend spot cleaning your carrier as needed with a soft cloth, ox gall and lukewarm water

Machine washable:

Wash at 30°C (86°F) on a delicate program. Line dry in the shade. Only use liquid detergent and do not use softeners. Do not tumble dry. Hot steam iron.

Hand wash:

Swirl in lukewarm water with a gentle liquid detergent (“no-rinse” detergents are not advised, and do not use detergents that hold lanolin or olive oil, both can cause colors to bleed). Rinse gently in clean water, same temperature as the previous bath, and do not use running water. Squeeze and press water out without wringing. Fold your carrier between towels and roll up. Press the roll to remove excess water. Dry flat in the shade. Iron on wool or silk setting.

All Artipoppe woven wraps, ring slings and baby carriers are designed for ergonomic babywearing only, meaning:

  • upright carrying only, with legs out and baby’s hands close to baby’s chest or mouth to support the fetal tuck position.
  • Spread Squatting Position, the knees are at or above the level of baby’s bum.
  • Sufficient head support. Baby’s head is supported with an open airway and is kept from falling to the sides or backwards.
  • Our products are totally adjustable in order to accommodate different built children and babywearers.
  • When used properly, our wraps, ring slings and carriers provide a center of gravity close to the babywearer’s body to avoid backaches. The child should never be dangling in front or back.
  • The materials are breathable and natural.

A little reminder to never wrap your baby in the “cradle” position. It is a high risk carrying method, in which the chin can slump forward on the chest and the baby can suffocate within a few minutes without making a sound. Next to that the cradle position doesn’t provide a good Spread Squatting Position which is optimal for the hip development of the baby.
