What is a 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.

Nook Evolve: Design to grow with your toddler

Discover the Nook Evolve

The ultimate Preschooler carrier, suitable from 2-6 years

The Evolve is ideal for those parents wanting to carry their toddlers close. The Nook Evolve had been designed to grow with your little one as they move from toddlerhood to pre-schooler age.

The Evolve will fit your child from about 2 – 6 years old, with two in-built cinches used to adjust the height and width of the body panel as your child grows.

Height Adjustment

In-built cinches in the sides of the carrier allow you to reduce the height of the carrier to give your young toddler a safe and comfy carry.

Width Adjustment

In-built cinches above the Strata-linea waistband allow you to narrow the width of the panel to ensure your little one is knee-to-knee and in the optimum position for their size.
