Ring sling baby carriers
Babywearing is an invaluable tool for all parents, postpartum and beyond. There are many benefits for baby and carer to be enjoyed through babywearing.
Responsiveness and close contact is essential for the thriving of both mother and child and babywearing facilitates this need.
Ring slings, of course, are our favourite way of babywearing.
Simple yet beautiful babywearing.
The first and only silk slings made in Australia
Our fully adjustable ring slings are handmade in Narrm (Melbourne) with two luxuriously strong layers of natural raw dupion silk. Suitable for your squishy newborn or your rambunctious toddler.
It's all about connection
"We are born ready to love and be loved. It is our birthright. Our ability to connect with others is innate, wired into our nervous systems and we need connection as much as we need physical nourishment"
- Sharon Salzberg
Love for our slings
"I have been using my Zarinah ring sling since my little one was one month old, he's 15 months old now and we're still using it and loving it. The silk fabric is beautiful and durable. The best tool for settling babies and for allowing them to see the world from a comfortable and secure place"

I held my son a lot, I felt privileged to have his warm body on mine.
My community has been told time and time again by politicians, the media and general public that we are not welcome here, we are the problem, that our faith is one of violence.
Through the lack of representation in media, advertising, literature (the list goes on) we have been told the world is not for us. We are not the target market. Or we are tokenized for profit when it suits them.
A power structure that actively tries to eradicate Aboriginal People from their land, dehumanizes Black people, criminalises & detains refugees and uses Islamophobia as an election winning strategy also promotes the separation of the mother – child dyad in the interests of capitalism.
A culture that normalizes the ability to ignore the cries of your newborn – their only form of communication – starts the process of dehumanization of all people from very early on.
Hold your babies and respond to them. Teach them to respect themselves and others.
This work is one of the most sincerest we can do.
We carry the experience of separation, of trauma, of distance, of love and joy. We carry it in our DNA and subconscious. It makes up a part of us we don’t even know.
Parts of us know the smell of the soil of lands our ancestors lived in. The feeling of the air and the rhythm of the sun. Other parts of us remember the burden of separation, of pain and the deepest sorrow we could ever imagine.
We receive this knowledge and pass it to our children, sometimes without realising. It weaves its way into their being, their make up. It might be expressed through tendencies or an energy resonated.
So through carrying my child I attempt to provide an alternative narrative to the history of generations ago. A drop in the ocean of separation, of distance, of pain. I tell him that he matters and to be kind. I try to reach into his soul and tell him he is safe. I rally the generations of love and sincerity weaved into our existence and tell him to love himself and love others. I acknowledge the trauma of past generations, both received and exerted, in an effort to raise a responsible, conscious man who knows heart.
