Girasol's Blue Ikat Ring Sling is the Cat's Meow

Yes, the Girasol Blue Ikat Ring Sling is a dazzlingly patterned, deeply blue beauty of a baby carrier...
"But what exactly is an ikat?" you may be wondering? No, it's not an Apple product. (After a little Googling we learned it's pronounced "ee-KAHT".) Ikat is an ancient method of textile decoration, a kind of "resist dyeing" similar to tie-dyeing except that the threads themselves are dyed prior to being woven on a loom. As you can see, the results of this technique are wonderful to behold, and even more wonderful to wear! We could never fully express just how amazing the work of these Guatemalan artisans is, so we strongly advise you order one and see for yourself.
