We use this beautifully soft but supportive blended fabric for out Stretchy wraps. It’s 70% Eco Bamboo, 22% Organic cotton, 8% Elastane.
This fabric is 100% woven cotton. It is an exclusive design by Ivi-designs. It’s called “Pua Tapa”. Pua is the Samoan word for Frangipani. The design incorporates the Frangipani and it’s leaves, in a tapa cloth inspired layout and design. The Frangipani is a special flower across the Pacific and beyond. It’s known for it’s sweet smell and beauty.
In Samoan tapa cloth designs, the pua can represent new life; when breathing in the sweet smell of the pua, you inhale new life and new beginnings. This seemed a beautiful analogy for our first design and the launch of this endeavor. This colourway is red earth and sand coloured, connecting the land, the sea and to traditional colours of Pacific tapa cloth.
The beautiful art work is by Ruha Fifita and you can read more about her over at Ivi-designs.
We use this beautiful 100% organic cotton for backing our carriers.
