Tala - Astra

The Details

 This version of Tala is made out of mercerized cotton and is a bit slipperier/smoother in comparison. After the first wash it is deliciously soft and wonderful texture for that delicate newborn skin! Please note this is wider than traditional newborn wraps and will require some rolling of the top rail to accommodate those squishy little beings! We believe all wraps should be on the wider side of life so it can grow with you precious little person all the way through toddlerhood! The nice medium weight of this wrap means it can still hold up your toddler without getting too diggy in the shoulders!

As with all Smittens, Astra is made to be worn!  This is a medium weight jacquard woven wrap that can be safely used all the way from birth through toddler.  It is made of 100% cotton and arrives in a "loom state."  As your wrap is loom fresh (ie stiff), it must to be washed prior to use.  The best way to break-in any woven wrap is repeated use... SO GET OUT THERE!

    Most beautiful and best budget natty

    From the very first time I saw the pics of Tala Astra, I instantly fell in love. The pattern and the color are just so elegant and beautiful. And then I went on the list to be a tester of one, but got so impatient that I ended up buying one before the tester wrap got to me. It's got amazing texture! And just as beautiful and wonderful as I imagined it. It wraps so easily and has the grip I need for my wriggly toddler. I'm not too used to the width though, so I sold it again but I'm definitely going to buy it again if by next year my toddler is still letting me wrap her. For now it is a bit too wide for me to handle because I wrap a very impatient toddler. But it's definitely a wrap I want back later.

    Two words, mercerized cotton. This natty wrap is so gorgeous. I love that you can see the pattern. The wrap is thicker than most budget wraps . It is soft and smooshy. Cushiest shoulders ever and I have picky shoulders. Handles my toddler perfectly and the silky softness would be perfect for a newborn. This budget wrap is low price but high value! It is perma stash!

    This wrap is pretty stellar. It has the perfect combination of softness but also some texture. I can personally attest that the wrap does not get diggy at all when carrying around a 30 lb toddler. Supportive in both single and multiple layer carries. Plus its great for dressing up or dressing down! Lots of love for Astra.
