Monster Warning Tags on Wraps and Slings

"What is going on with these large warning tags on my Bijou Wear wrap/ring sling?"Wraps and slings sold by Bijou Wear are compliant with the stringent safety regulations for baby carriers that are expected to be passed in the US in late 2016.What does that mean? Our baby carriers have undergone rigorous third-party laboratory testing and meet or exceed U.S. standards. The regulations are not yet mandatory, but Bijou goes to the extra effort and expense to test to the standard. The large "Warning!" tags are part of this effort to be compliant. They will be required on all woven wraps and ring slings next year.We started in 2015 with our very first sling. It's part of our assurance to you that we...

LP Blast

"The LP (Long Play), or 33 1⁄3 rpm microgroove vinyl record, is a format for phonograph (gramophone) records, an analog sound storage medium." -- Wikipedia Why "Blast LP"? Because it looks like broken records. Crossed with spin art. Then tie dyed. Woven into something outrageously cool in a very rock-and-roll sort of way.  We're going to need sunglasses for this.  But get them on quickly! Stock is dwindling. If you can't find your preferred size at BijouWear.com then check out our Hawaiian retail partner www.HikingwithKeiki.com -- they still have a small few on the shelves, too!

Babywearing: Matters of Size

Babywearing is for everyone. Let's just get that straight from the git-go. You aren't too big or small and neither is that wrap. Bijou Wear would like to take a moment to demystify matters of babywearer size and wrap size to show why that's true. It can be demoralizing to find you've gone into a shop and you're too ... something ... to fit in the clothes there. Maybe they don't make a size 0 or a size 16 or plus sizes or tall sizes or petite sizes. So you may casually look at the shoes as if you meant to do only that all along and then exit stage left. This can even happen with soft structured carriers, where plus sized...
