From idea to actual babywearing – the story of MADALO wraps
To create a handwoven baby wrap nearly 1,000 warp threads need to be arranged, wound on the warping frame in the order matching the design, then connected and threaded into the shafts of the loom…only when this is ready the actual weaving can begin!!
Weaving takes a lot of patience and love, to give you an idea: in a 5 meter long wrap, each weft thread is shot between the warp threads 4,500 times while the weaver is simultaneously working the foot pedals to create the weave (diamond twill weave or herringbone twill weave, etc).
By the time the wrap is ready, it already has a long story to tell and awaits for you and your little one to continue creating one!
