Fidella "Shiva spirit" wrap review and GIVEAWAY

Fidella is a German company producing beautiful jacquards that are wide, thin, and 100% organic cotton.  My size 6 (a true 4.6m) arrived packaged in a matching dust bag and lightly fragranced. Whatever they washed it in, I want some.

This particular design -  Shiva spirit - is particularly appealing to me, garnished with Oms, lotus flowers, and Shiva depicted as a goddess sitting in the lotus position. Audrey was delighted with "Blue!" and promptly fell asleep ten minutes after being wrapped, so I'm calling that a winning endorsement from her.

At a generous 80 cms wide, this wrap is particularly suited to toddlers, and I'm looking forward to exercising it in something more strenuous than front wrap cross carry  to see how the "thin" holds up. I don't think I would love this as a shortie, but it could be a fantastic summer wrap and it's very soft and easy to work with straight from the bag (yes, I naughtily wrapped it BEFORE I washed... BAD me.)

In a beginner-friendly move, Fidella hem their rails on different sides, making it very easy to distinguish top from bottom and check nothing has twisted behind your back. The thinness of the weave let it spread easily across my shoulders and our bedtime FWCC that mutated into a weird cradle FWCC was surprisingly comfortable. I walked about the house and did a few odd tasks for about an hour with 12 kgs of unconscious two-year-old quite happily.



As you can see, the flip side is a stunning emerald green and my husband was quite taken with the colour (he has three green tee shirts. Every week I wash three green tee shirts) so I suspect he's eyeing this off as a bit of a daddy wrap.

My assessment? Fantastic baby wrap. Very soft and floppy and thin for new babes, is going to be great in summer (feels quite similar to Vatanai Koira), has a tiny knot, and a beautiful subtle design.
The best part? Thanks to the generosity of the lovely people at Fidella, I have one to GIVE AWAY!

  1. I've never wrapped.. but really want to. I have a baby carrier but the wraps are SO much prettier. :) I love the blue and green on this one.

  2. I have no experience with wraps, but I have to say that finding a print that represents who I am is important to me. It speaks to others and to my children. This print expresses my spirit and style.

    ReplyDelete

  16. Beautiful! I adore the colors, the design and the fact that it is of lighter fabric. It would be an awesome wrap to use with my 3 week old or even my 18 month old.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The most important thing for me in a wrap at the moment is that its toddlerworthy. I personally love the design of this wrap and it's colours. Thank you for the opportunity to win one for my private teaching/lending library!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Soooo... I hadn't heard of Fidella until just the other day. When I saw they started following my Babywearing shop (we make SSCs & accessories) on Instagram, I checked out their site. I absolutely love their kinda alternative-ish style designs. I love the colors & definitely enjoyed the hip aesthetic! I'm definitely looking forward to converting one of these sweet wraps into a Mei tai or any SSC really! So fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. First of all, I just wanted to say thanks to both Fidella and you for the fantastic opportunity to win this gorgeous wrap!

    The qualities I look for in a wrap is all day comfort and support as I have a 20lb 6 month old that I'm hoping to carry for quite some time!

    To win this particular wrap would be amazing because its not only in neutral colors but its also has a gorgeous design! Who ever wins this will certainly be happy! Good luck Mamas!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really like this pattern. I have yet to baby wear, but soon! So with all the research I've been doing I really love the wraps the best. I mean, not that there is anything wrong with the other carriers, but there is just something so beautiful about the wrap itself. So down to earth as well.

    What I Look for in a wrap the most is softness, easy to wrap, style and how comfortable it is for My Nurslings. If My Nurslings are Happy, Mum is Happy♡♡ I would absolutely LOVE to win this for My Newest Squish!♡♡

  22. I have yet to try a wrap but I imagine that support and softness would be key in choosing one. I really really want a wrap! I feel like my giant 5 month old is getting a bit heavy for a ring sling.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very stunning wrap. I'm new to wrapping and don't have a local baby wearing group so I've loved reading your blog and following you on fb. I'm looking for a great wrap for the summer heat for my 3 month old. Right now I've been learning with a stretch wrap.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gosh that sounds lovely! And gorgeous too :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never had a woven, but I love the versatility of wraps. They travel easily, have so many different applications...

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my mei tei and ssc, but you're kinda limited with them, if you kwim. This wrap is stunning! I hope you pick me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Chelsea for the amazing opportunity to win this wrap! And thank you to fidella for giving it to you to give away!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm kind of new to babywearing. I tried wearing my eldest, but the ring sling I was gifted (13 years ago) was padded and uncomfortable for me. I have an almost 2 year old now and have a wcrs we're trying to figure out. I really wanted a wrap, but, what I look for in a wrap and what I can afford are two different things! lol I am picky about color and patterns and of course, I need something toddler worthy! I love both the colors and pattern in this wrap!!! Thank you so much for the chance to win!! Good luck, everyone!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. OMG this is gorgeous! I used to have an ellevil that was the blue/green/brown that I loved. I like a wide wrap and a thin one. I think wide makes me feel safer since it's easy to get a deep seat. Of course blues/teals/greens are my go to colors ;-)

  44. I have been using wraps for 3 years and absolutely love them. I have 3 babies with my oldest being 3 years old. Wraps are literally the only way for me to get anything done. This wrap is so beautiful, to me it would signify not only carrying them but the beauty in the body and breastfeeding

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have been wanting to wrap as this is my last of 7 children and have never been able would really love an easy to know wrap. my son now 3 months weighs 15+ lbs and I am afraid at this rate I may not be able to carry without assistance he is the fastest growing of all and my strength is not what it use to be.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This print really appeals to me, would love to try one of these. I like moldable, squishy wraps that don't knot terribly thick.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The most important is, the color, of course. :) This is beautiful!!! <3

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the colour of this one. Generically speaking, i love to have the baby near me and still be able to do stuff around the house.

    ReplyDelete
  58. This wrap is gorgeous to say the least!

    ReplyDelete
  59. What I look for most in a wrap is softness and thinness with some decent support since I have bigger babies that run hot and we live in a warm environment. Sounds like this wrap would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have never really owned a wrap, but i keep entering these competitions in the hopes of winning one! The qualities i would look for from what my friends have said is softness and durability, and also how easy the wrap is to use :) Being a beginner means i need something that would be easy to use to do basic wraps with :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love a pretty design that doesn't snag easily and that's lovely and soft - I have 4 boys and all the littler 3 like up so it's got to be strong too but not to hot. Its a hard mix to find.

    ReplyDelete
  62. the most important qualities I look for are softness and moldability. Softness is a must for keeping both baby b and me comfy for extended carries. I also want a wrap that breaks in and molds well too both if us. If a wrap is too stiff I feel like I just can't get my ties as tight and secure as I want and they're too bulky to physically wrap with I have a didy orient that is exactly what I like in a wrap :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love a wrap that's soft, pretty and not to warm when I carry my warmblooded baby in it :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Recently hada little squish, it was a healing natural birth! Everything I'd wanted for this birth I got. Now I'm on the hunt for a legacy wrap for my sweet Bean. Seems like Shiva may be up there! Why not right? I felt like a strong Goddess that day and I know my babe rocked our birth like a Goddess too. Thanks for the review! You made me want to smell the wrap BTW, I need to smell the awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love a wrap that the rails are easy to figure out (having the stitching done this way is ingenious!).

    ReplyDelete
  66. i love the colours of this one. I think for us its important that a wrap is toddlerproof and for this summer we look for colours that looks good on us (blondhair baby and brownhair mother) both haha.

    ReplyDelete
  67. the most important in a wrap for me ? colours and design ^^

    ReplyDelete
  68. I've a 2 yo baby. I'll try to find a good toddler wrap, comfy mostly for the back!

  72. Love that it's organic cotton, and the color is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ive just started wrapping! I cant believe how easy and comfortable it has been. I only know maybe 3 carries haha but Im so eager to learn :D
    This print is absolutely stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm in love with this design and color scheme. Whoever wins, hopefully me, will be very lucky indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Such a beautiful wrap! I am Hindu obsessed and I need this! Haha. I am new to baby wearing but I really wish I knew about it back when I first had my 4 year old. I have a storchenweige but it's thick and getting a little too hot outside to carry in it! I would like my next wrap to be something light, airy and soft!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love the Goddess and sleepy dust that would come with this xx

    ReplyDelete
  77. This looks beautiful! I love babywearing cuddles and need a wrap for my almost one year old!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've tried 2 wraps so far and the qualities i like most - soft fabric, thin enough to tie easily and attractive pattern - it seems this wrap ticks all those boxes especially perfect as i have green eyes and bub has blue ;)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Live in a hot climate so having a light wrap is a must for me

    ReplyDelete
  80. My favorite quality in a wrap would have to be feeling supportive without being too thick and this seems to fit the bill nicely and it's beautiful too! I've only ever owned one wrap, a gift from a generous angel mama a half a world away and I am eternally grateful for it aswe use it daily, however, I would be just absolutely in love if I were able to get a wrap with pictures! Especially pictures as amazing and connected to my spirit as this <3

    ReplyDelete
  81. I like light and supportive, but my little is still pretty little at 15-16lbs. But I do love a gorgeous colorway and this seems to have it all. :)

  82. I have never tried a wrap. I currently have a Mei Tai. I would really want to try it but the wraps can be so expensive. Also, there are so many different types I just have no idea where to start. :0 This would be a wonderful way to get started!

    ReplyDelete
  83. i love how it is supportive for a toddler. i want to try wrapping my son but have only stretchy wraps.i love that it's cotton. i love how they made the rails beginner friendly and you don't have to break it in.

  87. I pick my wraps by design and weight!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love a wrap with lots of grip and breath-ability!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Beautiful beautiful beautiful. Would be a perfect replacement for my close caboo....!

    ReplyDelete
  90. This Fidella is gorgeous! I love the colours, obviously one of the most important things in a wrap after the durability and these days, something nice and wide is great for toddler wearing!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I only own one wrap and would love something less of a "beast", easier to know, and a bit cooler. I also look at colors and design and this wrap is my favorite colors and the Shiva design is breathtaking!! Something floppy, but cushy sounds great. :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. I want a wrap to be soft and cool (I'm quite fluffy and I need the cool factor even in colder months!).

    ReplyDelete
  93. Summer wrap needy! Love being inspired by you. My life has changes from wearing my babe, but we've been on hiatus in our heat. In need of a meditative, gorgeous cotton wrap

    ReplyDelete
  94. I like a wrap that doesn't hurt my shoulders, even with a single pass carry and a heavy kid

    ReplyDelete
  95. The qualities I look for in a wrap are that it's breathable and soft :-)

    ReplyDelete
  96. This wrap is beautiful. I would love it as my first wrap.

  104. Still trying to figure out wraps but I guess I would say that my favorite quality is one that does well in the heat. It gets into the 100s here.

    And this is such a lovely wrap!! My husband doesn't really want to wrap, but I really feel like this would change his mind. :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. This is so gorgeous! The print, the color...it all speaks to me. It is going to be such a hot summer here, so a wrap that keeps cool is important!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Ok, aside from the gorgeous color choice, I love that you said that it's basically wrap-ready straight out of the bag as far as softness and floppiness. As someone that will wrap for the first time first of next year, that makes me want this wrap! I don't want to break something in as a newbie.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I live it south central Texas so the fact that it is a cool wrap is what calls out to me! That and the fact that it is gorgeous!! I am a baby wrapper and want this in my collection so so bad!!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  109. I have wrapped with a Moby, but am just starting to get into woven wraps, and this one is absolutely gorgeous! I watched a video of yours where you tied a back carry of some sort and I was sold! I wear my 2 year old daughter and my 3 month old son :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I am currently pregnant with my first baby and can't wait to start trying wraps and slings! Got a carrier already that I know the hubby will use, but now its time to get my first wrap and start learning!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  112. I like soft and grippy wraps.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I have never used a wrap but I want too. What I would like in a wrap is something that's soft, comfortable, and that I could wear for more than a few minutes without any issues!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love the versatility of a wrap & love the lighter colourful ones!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I prefer a wrap that doesn't need babying. No hand washing and hanging to dry for this mama!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I adore the colours in this wrap! I am still hunting for the perfect first woven, but I've found I gravitate to colours I love more than any other factor when admiring wraps. If I'm going to be wearing it, I need to love the colours, so they'll make me happy.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love that it's lightweight! Living in Georgia, it gets hot. I also love the colors!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love the colours and also that it's thin yet toddler-worthy!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I don't know what I look for in a wrap because I don't have one. I know I would want something pretty that can hold a toddler well, and is preferably breathable, too.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I love a smooshy solid wrap!

    ReplyDelete

    The colour on this wrap is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  126. This wrap is beautiful. I have a toddler and would love to wrap but never did beyond a stretchy at 5 months. I like the alternate hems. Great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  127. absolutely lovely wrap. my son saw the picture and was all smiles

    ReplyDelete
  128. I do not have a wrap YET. I can't wait to try one.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I like a wrap to be soft, but supportive. And I want it to be nice, with beautiful colours, just like this one. Just my kind of colours. My soul is crying for this wrap.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I'm new to wrapping and on a limited budget. What I look for is quality that will stand to be worn for all of my children. My son is 11 months old and 6 months pregnant with second baby. It is also important that the wrap suits newborn to toddler. This particular wrap is beyond beautiful. The colors, the strong woman goddess (how ironic for a wrapping mum) and symbols are to die for. Absolutely stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  131. I love how quickly I can toss her into her ring sling and go. Wish I could have another for color options and being able to keep one in the car and one at the house!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I love the colors and that's it's thin and lightweight for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  133. My favorite in a wrap is it's durability with a chunky baby! We love wearing and I don't want to have to unwrap and rewrap because it can't stay tight or hold her weight!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love a wrap that has a good print in great colors, supportive and soft, and perfect for hot weather.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I love wraps that are soft, thin, but supportive too.

    ReplyDelete
  138. What a gorgeous wrap....looks so comfy and the pattern is AMAZING. Im really into these lightweight thinner wraps they are like a second skin.

    ReplyDelete
  139. This wrap is sooo beautiful. The most important qualities in a wrap for me is that they're supportive and cozy. My little guy is only 4 months so I want it needs to be soft enough for his comfort :)

    ReplyDelete
  140. I don't know much about wraps but this one is beautiful! I would say one of the most important qualities would be comfort for both baby and me.

    ReplyDelete
  141. What a beautiful wrap! I have a Moby wrap (which was great in winter when my daughter was just itty bitty) but it's way too hot for summer. This looks like it would be perfect for carrying in hot weather!

    ReplyDelete
  142. I'm kind of new to babywearing. I tried wearing my eldest, but the ring sling I was gifted (13 years ago) was padded and uncomfortable for me. I have an almost 2 year old now and have a wcrs we're trying to figure out. I really wanted a wrap, but, what I look for in a wrap and what I can afford are two different things! lol I am picky about color and patterns and of course, I need something toddler worthy! I love both the colors and pattern in this wrap!!! Thank you so much for the chance to win!! Good luck, everyone!! :)

  146. My first child is 5 months old and I quickly fell in love with baby wearing, but am still relatively new! I am exploring different wraps and this seems like a great one to learn with. So far all I have used is a moby, K'tan, and a ring sling and would LOVE something of good quality

  153. Gosh I love how this wrap looks. I'm only slightly crunchy, but I really dig the Earth Mother-yness of this wrap. And the colours... oh my.
    Fingers crossed my number comes up on this one! :) x

    1. Totally forgot to answer the competition question!
      I have only had one wrap - an Ellevill Zara Bluez. I love it because it's my first wrap, because my babe loves it and because it's comfortable. I have dodgy shoulders and with the right carry I hardly feel my chunky 7 month old bubba at all. So comfort is a necessity when it comes to a wrap. And secondly... appearance! Although I'm very fond of Blue, sometimes I look at all of the beautiful wraps on the market and feel like mine looks a little tea-towelly in comparison.

  157. This is beautiful!! I love wraps that are breathable and comfortable for toddlers. We live in FL (HOT!) and baby wearing can be a challenge without soft, breathable fabric! I would love this for my 2yo or 3mo!

  158. I love a wrap that is bright and cheerful.....but also is suitable for use with both my baby and toddler. This one sounds like it is light enough for the hot weather where I live, wide enough for carrying my toddler and soft for my little one..Perfect!

  185. I need a cushy wrap that will support my chubbalistic baby, but one that's lighter for Louisiana summers! The shiva wrap is so lovely, and so my style--it would help keep me serene and ponder the goddess within while I nursed in public all over my conservative town :)
