Why would you prefer a woven baby sling? A woven baby sling is much more than just a piece of fabric. The word ‘woven’ says it all. This baby sling has a special weave. It might be a cross-cut weave or for example a jacquard weave. These specific weaves don’t create stretch in length or width, yet they do create a beautiful diagonal stretch and ensure a perfect fit for your baby. These woven baby slings are extremely safe.
