When we set out to find a fresh addition to the Baby Tula carrier selection, we looked at material grown from the earth. Just like the first blooms of Spring, the Tula Linen collection provides moments of tenderness and delight.
A Refined Look With Incredible Properties
Look closely, and you will notice a sophisticated herringbone pattern in the fabric that adds to its year-round aesthetic appeal. This carrier will flourish just as beautifully in a winter wonderland as it does strolling down the beach boardwalk in the summer. The stylish simplicity of Tula Linen perfectly mirrors the innate elements of a linen baby carrier. Linen is versatile in many climates and strong. Let’s learn more about why Tula chose linen to add to our current lineup of carriers.
Cuddles Grown From the Earth
Everyone is familiar with the look of linen from its presence in fashion and upholstery. But, you might not be familiar with how it is sourced. Linen is a product of the flax plant. The plants are typically pulled by hand from the ground then left in the field to soften before they are sorted and spun into yarn. This lengthy process is why linen is often considered a luxury fabric.
Linen is also considered a more sustainable option, compared to synthetic material. It is a low water crop and less waste is created in its production. Flax is also said to require less synthetic or natural treatment for pests and fungus due to its own natural properties.
Combined with cotton, the material used for the Tula Linen collection has a much softer hand feel than perhaps expected.
What Makes Linen Great for Baby Carriers?
Linen has been used to make fabric for over 6,000 years for good reason. It has natural properties that make it, both, practical in addition to having a subtle beauty. While still being lightweight, linen is incredibly strong. In fact, it is one of the strongest natural fibers and gets stronger with washing.
Linen is a staple in warm and humid climates worldwide because of its airy feel and moisture-wicking properties that make it dry quickly. The temperature regulating properties of flax fibers will help to keep you cool in warm seasons.
Especially in warmer weather, carrying a baby can feel like you have added a snuggly heater onto your chest. A breathable carrier, like the Tula Linen baby carrier, that can keep you both drier and cooler is an incredible asset.
Linen is even said to have natural anti-bacterial properties. With all the hormonal changes that can come in fourth-trimester life, having that added funk-fighting boost is smart, even if it isn’t glamorous. Overall, Tula Linen is an ideal option to consider for your babywearing needs.
