today i’d like to talk about my newest addi(c)tion: kokadi waldvögel. kokadi is a relatively new wrap brand from germany. they produce eco-friendly certified baby wraps and carriers with some new and fresh designs.
this design is named “waldvögel”, where “wald” means forest and “vögel” are the birds. so it is not surprising that you’ll find birds from the forest woven on the wrap: owls and birds, net to branches and flowers. the patterns is simple and cartoonish but also very very cute. can you tell which owl is my favorite one ? i just love the little one with a brown and a green eye ♥
the wrap is medium to thin, but has a very dense weave. one side is lime green, whereas the other one is in a nice chocolate brown. on the bottom rail you can also find a brown hem which facitilates to discriminate the bottom from the top rail while wrapping. of course there is also a middle marker added.
kokadi wraps are very easy to wrap with. they are soft from the beginning and also easy to take care for. like other wraps they shrink a bit in the first wash, but this is expected and they run in general very long. so after the first wash you will have at least 4.6 m for a wrap in this size…but it is not unusual that they are 4.8 m or even close to 5 m.
i still wear my daughter (3 years old) in multi layer carries in a kokadi. and as waldvoegel was a very popular design, kokadi decided to add a similar green-brown owl wrap into their standard collection which will be available from october 2012.
