Taura Here Manawa 'Te Āo Pounamu' Gathered Ring Sling
This ring sling shows the green side of Te Āo Pounamu, sewn with a gathered style shoulder and black rings.
It is 100% easy care cotton and is one of our thicker weaves, so is best suited for wriggly toddlers and heftier infants. In either ring sling or wrap form, Te Āo Pounamu needs some softening through wash and wear before being used to carry a newborn.

"The cord that binds me to your heart..."
Another beauty in our design series with Hirini Katene of House of Natives. This design came from our earliest conversations and was more collaborative than the others in our 'Manawa' series, which were conceived of later but released sooner. Here again, you can see the central motif of manawa (heart) running in repeat like a heartbeat through the design. Carried along on a line that represents not only the heart but the umbilical cord, bringing life, energy, and connection.
We are able to ship ring slings to New Zealand and Australia only.
Your ring sling will arrive in loom state and requires washing before use to set the weave. We feel it's better to leave the choice of washing detergent up to you in case of any sensitivities. Additional images of the wrap version are to show the design and colour when in use.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
