Batik Wraps by Wrapsody

Wrapsody, formally known as Gypsy Mama, makes beautiful, hand batiked wrap carriers.  They have two types of wraps; the Bali Breeze is a light and airy gauze wrap perfect for summer, and the Bali Stretch-Hybrid is a thin and supportive cotton jersey with a one way stretch.  Both wraps are light and cool, so perfect for wearing in hotter climate, but their beauty makes them popular year round.

I could spend forever telling you about these awesome wraps, but I really want to show off their beautiful batik!  So for the sake of this post, I will focusing on their different designs, but if you want to learn more about these amazing wraps, visit our website for the full details.

Artisan Wraps

All of the Wrapsody baby carriers are hand-dyed and batiked in Bali, Indonesia.  They are fairly traded products made with environmentally safe fabric dyes.  Because each wrap is hand-dyed, no two are exactly the same.  It is also possible to have some color variations with different runs of the same design, though they are usually pretty consistent.

Wrapsody has some fairly consistent designs, though every year some wraps are retired and some new ones created.  They also have a few limited edition ones and some exclusive designs.
