Wrap Conversion FAQ
PLEASE NOTE! The new regulations are in effect, and I'm happy to report that Bamberoo SSC has passed the test and complies with F-2236 and CPSIA regulations!
What you need to know if you live in the US;
Baby carriers in the US are now regulated! For now only the Soft Structured Carriers and Mei Tais, but soon wraps and slings will be as well. This means that I can only sell carriers in the US that has been third-party tested for the F-2236 standard and complies with CPSIA regulations. Since all materials coming from different sources (different wrap brands, canvases), different blends and weaves must be tested separately on a finished carrier, choices will be limited for economical reasons. At this time I can only accept 100% cotton twill weave Girasol. (Planning to have another material tested and early next year the canvas/print and solarveil carriers as well) The wrap must be brand new, never used, but I ask you to wash it as you plan to wash the finished carrier later and send it with the original packaging and receipt.
What can be customized? While you need to stick to the tester's details, the size of the body and length of the shoulder straps can be made as you prefer and you can choose the layout. The second tester carrier will be made of a different material with slightly different features to add some variety.If you live outside of the US, you do not need to worry about all these changes, you can order any style carriers made of the fabric or wrap of your choice.
One custom spot listed every Thursday night at 9pm (EST) in my Etsy
store. Additional spots are added to the custom list irregularly, please
keep an eye on my Facebook page for announcement.
After purchasing the slot, you can send me your pre-washed wrap. Please
let me know the make and size of the wrap before shipping. In case the
ends tapered, the length should be measured from short end to long end.
Please don't add both long tapes into the length. I measure wraps as you
can see it on the Didy website.
What if your wrap is somewhat shorter? (Or the right
length but pattern/stripes requires a certain way of cutting) I'll have
to make the waist from 2 pieces. It's joined in the center, you'll only
see a vertical seam under the tag. I sew and top stitch the 2 pieces
onto a layer of canvas that I use for reinforcement inside the waist
anyway. Sturdy and safe, but in case it's a concern of yours, please
send a longer wrap. If possible I match the stripes, so they are
It takes 3-4 weeks to finish it counting from the time I received your wrap.
