What is the Slider-Cinch?

This unique waistband allows you to adjust the size of the body panel to fit your little one for the perfect ergonomic seated position. All slings should sit knee-pit to knee-pit on your baby for their comfort and optimal hip development; the Slider-Cinch means that the Bairn can be adjusted to fit from the newborn stage all the way to toddlerhood. It allows for quick adjustments, even as your little one sits in the carrier, no need to fiddle with snaps, buckles or zips!

Why Choose Oscha?

Founded by mum Zoe, Oscha began when her love for wrapping became a day to day life-saver after her twin boys were born just 16 months after her daughter. With a passion for slings and for design, Zoe’s vision of a wrap company which offers parents elegant, colourful baby carriers quickly became a reality. Zoe and the Oscha team continue to design unique woven patterns and use innovative weaving techniques to make baby carrying a beautiful and comfortable experience for all. Read the full Oscha Story.

Oscha is a carbon-neutral company and our baby carriers are made with zero-waste. Our fabrics are woven in the British Isles from responsibly sourced yarns before they are lovingly handcrafted into slings in our solar-powered Scottish workshop. Plus, each sling sold contributes to our growing Oscha grove which is helping to reforest the Scottish Highlands. Read more about our ethics.
