I'm a mother of two happy children and both me and my husband loved to carry our babies when they were little and occasionally we still carry them. I became inspired in baby wraps already when I was expecting our fist child. The philosophy of babywearing felt so natural and right: I just wanted to keep my small one close to me as much as possible.
My first baby wrap was a long woven wrap, which although was a good quality wrap, was way too thick and stiff for a beginner with a newborn. But I practiced wrapping methods persistently and over time became familiar with different woven wrap brands, slings and baby carriers. Our first child cried a lot as a small baby and I found the baby wrap very helpful and comforting during that difficult time. When the baby grew older the experiences of babywearing become more and more delightful.
When our second child was born I made a decision that we would carry her as much as possible, too. She slept most of her day time naps in the wrap and when she was awake she could take a part of the life around her from the sling or wrap.
I started thinking about an online shop of my own, and when I had the opportunity to continue selling the beautiful KatiWrap Girasols, started my dreams come true. Liinalapsi baby wrap shop was founded in April 2008. Since then we have increased our exclusive Girasol design collection by many fabulous new designs and color combinations. In 2010 we introduced our own soft structured carrier Wompat which we are very proud of. And in 2014 we started making our own Finnish made woven wraps Vanamo!
At Liinalapsi our mission is to offer good quality and ergonomic baby carriers, which are beautiful and unique. Working with all the great colors and fabrics is very inspiring to me and I love to be able to create new baby wrap designs and completely new products which make babywearing even more joyful for everyone.
