Artisan Ring Sling: Namaka
The Namaka ring sling was an incredible gift. When we were working on our “tree of life” wrap, we partnered with Cory Janiak, a Brand Ambassador and photographer, who created our ocean-inspired “tree.” Our manufacturer inadvertently reversed the color scheme we asked for — and it turns out, it was beautiful! We’ve decided to turn it into the Ring Sling twin of our Zoe wrap — which Cory named, “Namaka.”
Wrapsody has teamed up with Sleeping Baby Productions, a leading ring sling manufacturer, to bring you a brilliant ring sling experience.
Our lightweight, strong ring sling offers softness without compromising support. Our Artisan Ring Sling offers you a beautiful seat for your baby or toddler both for quick up-and-down errands or for longer carrying adventures!

What’s special about the fabric blend of the Wrapsody Artisan Ring Sling?
Linen has a high tensile strength but little elasticity. Cotton adds elasticity or “huggability” to the fabric.Linen has been shown to keep people 3-4 degrees cooler than cotton in hot weather, but linen can be stiff. The blend combines temperature regulation with a lovely fabric hand.Linen has a natural light-reflective luster and silkiness that adds beauty to natural cotton.Linen is smooth and crisp. Adding cotton adds “cush,” adding support on the shoulders to the crisp, cool sensation of the linen fibers.Blending cotton with linen reduces wrinkling and creasing and increases fabric longevity.Linen resists dirt, stains, and shrinkage.Blending linen with cotton causes it to feel comfortable and dry even when slightly damp due to the way it absorbs moisture, such as drool.
I think one thing that Wrapsody offers that no one else even comes close to is the designs. No plain colors or machine automation. The batik dye process is full of life with variations in the patterns and colors that make each carrier a unique work of art. The cotton/linen blend is perfect. Linen keeps it cool and the cotton makes it softer and easier to break in. ~Michelle Poe
