Rainbow Herringbone Weave - complex herringbone 'zig zag' weave with rainbow stripes and cream weft.
Girasol Diamond and Herringbone Weave wraps are instantly distinguishable; their geometric patterns are striking and are wonderful visual additions to a striped or two-tone wrap. We also find they have a subtle stretch to them compared to the regular twill weave. Both diamond and herringbone weaves are more complex than regular twill weave and you may find that they have a few more minor inconsistencies (pulls, loose threads; knots). This is normal and these do not affect the usability of a wrap.
Girasol wraps are all 100% cotton and sturdy yet blankety soft once broken in; a firm favourite in the babywearing community! These wraps are handwoven by a fair-trade co-operative in Guatamala, who have nearly 30 years experience in producing high quality baby wraps and carriers at fair prices. Girasol weavers specialise in diagonal-weave which gives their carriers excellent elasticity, yet prevents them from stretching out of shape. You can be confident on the quality of thread; only pure, untreated cotton is used, with no pre-bleaching or chemical finishes.
*Please note - being handwoven, Girasol wraps and ring slings are prone to minor weaving inconsistencies including small pulls (loops of fabric), weavers knots and skipped threads. Small weaving inconsistencies will not affect the usability of your wrap. Wraps may also have tailor's chalk marks (often found near the centre point of the wrap). These will wash out.*
