Girasol wraps are handwoven in Guatamala on traditional looms. Girasol partners with artisans, small workshops, cooperatives and independent weavers and tailors, and at the heart of their craft are the principles of fair trade and sustainability.
Each length of cloth is handwoven by skilled artisans, resulting in a soft-in-hand wrap without the firm density that is sometimes found with machine woven wraps. Around medium weight, most of the weaves are between 210-230 g/m².
Pitaya is woven in a beautiful herringbone weave in violet shades. Made with 100% soft, pure cotton, it's super-soft, easy to care for and absolutely wonderful to wrap with.
Suitable from newborn to toddler, Girasol wraps are incredibly versatile. Baby can be carried on your front, on your hip, or on your back.

Woven Wrap Size Guide
GIRASOL is widely known for handwoven baby wraps. They are manufactured exclusively for them by a specifically developed and dedicated group of dyers, weavers and tailors in Guatemala.
The story began when, at the end of 1980, Camilla and Gerhard took off for a journey to explore the South-American continent from Mexico to Peru.
They never made it to Peru however, since the breathtaking beauty of the Guatemalan highlands, the fascination of the Caribbean coast and the curiosity for post-revolutionary Nicaragua completely blew both their budget and time frame.
Their local partners are artisans, small workshops, cooperatives and independent weavers and tailors. The principles of fair trade and sustainability are paramount for all stages of purchase, production and sale.
The end result? Absolutely stunning hand-woven wraps, ring slings, and the fantastic Mysol that we have come to know and love.
