Girasol WrapMySol Alaska
The Girasol WrapMysol is a meh-dai style carrier, made using Girasol woven wrap fabrics. It differs from the MySol in that it has woven wrap shoulder straps, rather than padded straps.
The WrapMysol Carrier is completely soft - 100% pure cotton with no buckles, poppers or fasteners, so it's super-soft against babies body and super-comfortable for you.
With the addition the Mysol Buckle Belt, the WrapMysol becomes a Half Buckle Carrier.
The WrapMySol is made from two layers of woven wrap fabric, which nestles like a second skin around your baby, providing optimal support.
The WrapMysol is suitable for your newborn and as they grow and grow; the body of the carrier is easily adjustable - it narrows in the width for younger babies. This is very important to promote a soft, supported position, respectful of a young baby’s physiology.

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.
