Review - Fular mitla turguesa

This Inda jani is a happy blue. 100% cotton and handwoven in Mexico, it felt really thin and stiff - almost gauze-like - in hand and I was horrified! Then I washed it and all came right with the world. 

I'm not a huge fan of fringed wraps, but this has become a beach favorite and somehow the fringe seems ok with a bikini. 
The flat weave is very open and airy, without a lot of bounce and needs careful wrapping to avoid digging with toddlers. It has a great diagonal give and it is easy to get a very sleek and precise wrap job. 

 I love the "second skin" feel of it and it is an excellent beater wrap that's been rubbed in the sand, worn in the ocean and still washes up well. 
 
I would buy this in a heartbeat for a little baby to use with multilayer carries; it is very supportive with 11kgs of toddler and I have rucked in a hurry with it too, but I don't think it would be wonderful in a single layer carry for a long time. I AM besotted with the colors and the weave is of an excellent quality. 

Want one? Check back tomorrow ;)

  24. I would love to win a Marley wrap! I had two rough pregnancies back to back, and every time something went wrong or I felt down, I would listen to Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" (...every little thing is gonna be alright...). My youngest spent almost 100 days in the NICU, and I can't tell you how many times I listed to that song during that time.

  28. I would love to win one of these for my little one and I to use. I have never used a hand woven and can't imagine how amazing they probably are. I only own one woven wrap and really need another, but can't afford one. Having 4 kids is really tight on the wallet. ;)

  29. I would love to try a woven, all I have is a Moby because I didn't know about wovens when I bought the Moby.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would really love this. I love that it is woven and I think that this would be perfect for me! I love to carry my grand babies, but my back does bother me so this would be a great help to me.

  32. I would love to win this wrap. I've been wanting a Marley wrap ever since I started wrapping. We only have a simple diy osnaberg wrap, so it would be nice to try a more quality carrier. What an awesome idea to give away a Marley wrap on Bob Marley's birthday!! Thanks for the chance :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have never tried a woven. I love tge market!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I want one because I am due any day and don't have a woven wrap, only a stretchy one, which limits how long I can wear my baby. Also, living in Vegas the breathability would be a nice feature since it routinely reaches temperatures of over 110F.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love this wrap!!!! Oh and small world I am in Vegas, just like the before me! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Gorgeous wrap! I love it; I'm the leader of a babywearing group in Vegas (small world!!) and an airy supportive wrap would be a fantastic addition to our library

  66. As a long time Bob Marley fan with a brand new Marley fan, my little girl loves his music :) I think the two of us would look just swell sporting the size 4 inda jani marley woven. Would absolutely love to win one, thanks for giving us the opportunity :)

  75. I have a big carrier, but would love to have a wrap, especially when things start to heat up this summer. Having three under 7 makes going out difficult sometimes but I've found having a carrier to be very helpful! Love the color as well!
