Girasol Ring Sling - Antigua

The Girasol Ring Sling, in Antigua is a quick and simple baby carrier. Designed for use from birth through toddlerhood, ring slings cannot be beat for their speed, and they hold a very special place in the babywearing community. Offering options for upright front and hip carries, a ring sling is especially ideal when you’re running errands in and out of a car. As your kiddo grows into a wriggly, walking toddler, your ringsling will be the perfect carrier to have him hang out with you (where the action is) and then quickly release him when he wants to roam free.

Girasol takes the same incredible handwoven fabrics used in their wraps and converts them into these amazing ring slings. Since 1984, Girasol has been hand weaving these fair-trade cotton baby slings in Guatemala, using traditional weaving techniques from the Maya Indians. The richly striped greens and blues of the Antigua colorway mimic its namesake Caribbean island. This beautiful wrap is sure to elicit visions of lush green vegetation and clear azure seas.

The gathered shoulder design allows the fabric to spread across your back and shoulder for comfortable distribution of weight. Two aluminum rings are sewn in, to create a safe mechanism for easy tightening and quick release, and can carry a baby up to 35 pounds. Aluminum extruded rings are safe and seamless, and sewn permanently into the carrier. In no time, you will learn all the little nuances to ensure a perfect fit, every time.

  • Traditional cross twill weave provides a diagonal stretch that ensures the whole fabric supports and conforms to your baby.
  • Gathered shoulder offers control over weight distribution.
  • Carrier may be used from birth through toddlerhood and offers front and hip carry positions.
  • Compact and convenient, ring slings are easy to bring along or pack.
  • Fabric ends are tapered and hems finished. Aluminum extruded rings are sewn in.

100% Cotton is never bleached. Dyeing and finishing processes use no chemical finishes, formaldehyde, halogen-organic compounds, aromatic amines or brighteners. Ring slings are easy to care for and may be washed in hot water, tumble or line-dried. We recommend washing in a mesh laundry bag to protect the rings and your washing machine.

Girasol ring slings are made from fabric handwoven in Guatemala and may have small inconsistencies such as weaver’s knots or unevenness in the thread. Please know that these have no effect on the safety or quality of your carrier. This is the nature of a handwoven fabric and is what makes each Girasol one of a kind and so very special.

All our Girasol Ringslings are approximately 80” in length, but please allow for variances within a few inches. We find that this length works well for most people and can easily be hemmed, should you find the tail to be too long.

Please contact us should you have any questions regarding sizing or the use of this great carrier, we would love to help!
