We’ve worked closely with our customers along the way to ensure each added feature met their needs and high standards and we hope you will love the result!

Customer Testimonials

We sent the Encompass & Evolve to three of our customers to test and review, see their thoughts below:

I have truly enjoyed testing the new nook! I mostly wrap, but this carrier was very user-friendly and comfortable. The additional shoulder padding made it very comfortable to wear, and the continuum strap provided more even weight distribution than any other buckle carrier I have tried. I love how the adjustable internal cinch grows with my child and provides exactly the fit she needs. I also like how the chest clip is detachable. I found a back carry very easy and like the aesthetic without the chest clip, but love that I can add it on for front carries. Just like the previous generations of Nooks, this is beautifully crafted, soft, with artful attention to detail I’ve come to expect from Oscha. Truly a win!

Nikki (Nook Encompass)

I love this new Nook. I thought the last one was comfortable but this one is much more comfortable. For those that want one carrier, this is definitely THE carrier because it will last for years as your child grows.

I’m very impressed with how comfortable this carrier is for both of my children. The youngest is 7 months and the oldest is 31 months. I can carry the baby in the front with him having the panel not engulf his back and the toddler on my back supported by his shoulder blades. For my toddler, I put him in the carrier just the same as I do with an onbuhimo. That extra support on the waistband really helps ease discomfort on the shoulders!
