Bairn Carrier

Featuring ethically-made Oscha fabric, the Bairn is our traditional full-buckle carrier. It was designed to be your grab and go, snap-on carrier that fits neatly in a handbag. Intuitive to put on, the Bairn features a padded waistband and shoulder straps to give you comfy carries from newborn to 2.5 years, while the unique Slider-Cinch waistband means no newborn insert is needed.
From: £105 (ex. VAT)

What is a Full Buckle Carrier?

A Full Buckle Carrier typically has a waist belt and shoulder straps with buckles to secure each section and a ‘body panel’ to seat your baby in. There is often a ‘chest strap’, which is either used to draw the straps together at your back when carrying your baby on your front, or used across your upper chest if you are carrying your baby on your back.

What is the Slider-Cinch?

✔ Suitable until 2.5 years
✔ Front & Back Carries

Cairis Carrier

Simple & stylish, the Cairis is a lightweight tie-strap, or half-buckle, carrier. Made from our ethical and British made fabric the Cairis features a unique Strata-linea® padded waistband with a buckle fastening and half wrap-width shoulder straps which provide adjustability, comfort and support. These tie straps are padded over the shoulder, flaring out to about 30-35cm wide in order to mimic the snug feeling of a woven wrap and to provide extra support under baby’s bum.
The Cairis Baby and Toddler carriers allow you to carry your child on your front or back.
From: £162 (ex. VAT)

What is a Tie-strap or Half-buckle Carrier?

Tie strap soft structured carriers may also be referred to as a Meh Dai, Bei Dai or, previously, a Mei Tai (MT). They are very similar to a Full Buckle Carrier except that there are long lengths of fabric for the straps and waist band which are tied together, instead of being buckled, to secure the carrier. They also have a ‘body panel’ to seat the baby in but may not have a ‘chest strap’ to draw the shoulder straps together as the tails of the long ties can be used for this instead.

There are many versions of this style of carrier and some may have a buckle in place of the waist ties or the shoulder straps, in which case this would be referred to as a ‘Half Buckle Carrier’.

What is the Strata-linea® waistband?
Designed to complement your natural shape, the Strata-linea® waistband prevents hard buckles digging into your waist and provides a flattering silhouette. The Strata-linea® waistband features a long, padded ‘tongue’ which sits under the buckle for extra comfort, while the wide band neatly moulds to your body shape.

Toddler: up to 5 years

Nook Carrier

The Nook is our luxurious and innovative full buckle carrier which has been designed to offer you the ease of use of a buckle carrier while enjoying the comfort of a woven sling. This is why we call the Nook the ultimate comfort buckle carrier.
Made from our ethically crafted fabrics, the padded & contoured Continuum Straps mimic the support of a woven wrap carry by forming a continuous loop around your shoulders and under your little one’s bum for even and comfortable weight distribution when carrying on the front or back. The Nook also features our unique Strata-linea® waistband to prevent digging. The inbuilt cinches mean that no extra inserts are needed to adjust the size of the Nook for newborns with the Encompass, or smaller toddlers when using the Evolve Preschooler carrier.
