Tinge Garden Scarlet Garden – 100% cotton
Scarlet is not just red, it is RED, a perfect, stunning, strong red. The contrast with the white makes the red look even bolder. Maybe you’ve already guessed it, red is not really my colour, but I really liked it! This wrap is screaming ”look at me!” and it will definitely turn some heads if you walk in the city with your baby in this wrap. The design has a cute retro look, some people see guitars, or flowers, but I believe they are peacock feathers. An almost classic design redesigned in a whole new way.
I got the tester after the first release, I had already seen the first pictures of mamas with their Scarlet Garden and they said it was quite stiff from the bag, a cardboard wrap (but they also said it breaks in easily).This tester wrap already visited other mama’s so I can’t judge how it feels when it’s brand new. I received a pretty tote bag with scarlet garden detail (scrap) sewn on it. A nice place to store your wrap and a very practical bag for everyday use.
The first feel reminded me of my favourite Kokadi: Erna in Wonderland. Soft, smooth, a nice stretch, not as thick as I was expecting, it’s a medium thick wrap. Scarlet slides in to place without being slippy, it will be perfect for unexperienced wrappers and strong enough to last into toddlerhood. Maybe you’ve seen my youtube video with this wrap? I hope you can see how easy it is to wrap with. It truly is a delight to try new carries with this wrap, making backpasses isn’t always so easy! 😉
I tried the wrap in different carries, even in a rucksack carry it’s cushy enough to wear over a long period. With my toddler I do prefer multi-layer carries, but even in a ruck it didn’t get diggy. This wrap is very forgiving, it will shine in those moments when your child is being grumpy and your wrap job is far from perfect, but it still feels as comfortable as you could only wish for!
Tinge Garden is selling her wraps on Etsy, you can find info’s about pricing/releases on their Facebook page.
