We are excited to be using heritage methods for this beautiful carrier. Woven using a twill weave and made on the Dobby loom this is the same design and colour as our original fabric, this process simply gives a more authentic look to our tartan.
Rich in Scottish history, this sling fabric is derived from the clan tartan of the Stewarts, the last royal dynasty which ruled an independent Scotland. The Stewarts were descended from Robert the Bruce whose daughter Marjorie married Walter the Steward so the dynasty started with a woman, and also ended with a woman, Mary Queen of Scots.

About Ring Slings
Woven baby slings are elegant and quick to use: perfect for short trips and for children who like to be up and down often. Packing up small and light these ring slings are an amazing tool for the busy parent.
Our baby ring slings come with two shoulder options: Pleated and Gathered.
Our unique Highland Pleated shouldered ring sling was exclusively developed by Oscha, inspired by the Kingussie Kilt with its use of both box and knife pleats, it ensures an even distribution of weight and a streamlined aesthetic.
The Gathered shoulder has been widely used for some time – it is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is less structured than the Pleated shoulder as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds, allowing the wearer to spread the fabric over the shoulder for extra adjustability of the baby sling.
The choice of shoulder for your baby sling is down to personal preference, although those with narrower shoulders may prefer the Pleated option for their baby ring sling.
Oscha ring slings can be worn on either shoulder, although some directional patterns may by listed as Left Hand or Right Hand. This refers to the shoulder on which you would have the rings sitting if you wished the pattern to hang the correct way up.
Baby Slings are most commonly used for hip & front carries, although back carries with toddlers is possible. These ring slings are a popular choice for Weddings & Christenings.
All of our baby slings are woven in the British Isles from responsibly sourced yarns & handcrafted in Scotland.Delivery
