January 25th sees the annual celebration of Burns Night (and the anniversary of the great Scottish Poet, Robert Burns’ birth in 1759). To celebrate, I thought I would share two of my favourite slings (or brands) from the library.
Firstly, have you seen our Harris Tweed Connecta Baby Carriers. Harris Tweed is woven in the Outer Hebrides and only a select range of companies all allowed by the Harris Tweed Authority to use it and add the famous Harris Tweed label. Wool is naturally breathable and although many think this is a winter fabric it can be surprisingly cool in the spring and summer too.
The other is the Scottish Wrap company – Oscha. I remember when they launched. Many an Oscha wrap has passed through here and one of their classic Roses collection – Roses Dusk – is inspired my my dyed Roses Zen.
This ring sling celebrates its 4th birthday today, as it was dyed to match the bridesmaids dress I wore for my sisters wedding (happy 4th wedding anniversary Becky and Mark).
We have several stunning Oscha ring slings available to hire for that special occasion, including; Vanilla Rose and Roses of the North, as well as Starry Night Orchid.
So let’s support British design, manufacture and business on the Baird’s Birthday.
