For Lending Libraries: 45% off retail with free domestic shipping (flat rate 20$USD shipping rest of the world) and for BWI Educators and Chapter Volunteers the same shipping terms and 30% off regular pricing.

Bijou is over the moon to partner with BWI to offer the exclusive colorway Illuminate of the new design, Stella, woven with a "Low TENCEL®" / high cotton blend. You don't have time to break in wraps for your library, and low tencel eliminates that step!

27% TENCEL® lends Stella softness from the first wash, but the strong workhorse fiber cotton does the "heavy lifting" with ease. It is truly the best of both worlds. Stella will be the perfect showcase for BWI's light teal on an ecru warp. 

TENCEL® is a fiber made from sustainably harvested trees. It behaves like wool's low-maintenance cousin ... cozy and smooshy in hand like wool, but machine washable.

This will be the sort of wrap that any new babywearer could pick up and enjoy because of how easily it glides, because it tightens nicely, and because it is lovely for newborns but will be great all the way through toddlerhood, as well. 

The Stella ring sling features a floating gathered shoulder for cushion (without the bulk of extra padding) and silver SlingRings. It can be worn on either the right or left shoulder. 

Choosing a size woven wrap or ring sling for babywearing


Woven Wraps

If you do not know where to start, please read this page and also see our infographic for determining your "base" size HERE.

Woven wraps are long parallelograms of fabric. The size indicates the length along one rail (a long edge) as follows  (all plus or minus 0.1 meters):

Woven Wrap Size Chart Length Meters Baby Carrier for Babywearing

Size 2  =  2.7 meters  //  Size 3  =  3.2 meters  //  Size 4  =  3.7 meters  //  Size 5  =  4.2 meters  //  Size 6  =  4.7 meters  //  Size 7  =  5.2 meters  //  Size 8  =  5.7 meters  // Size 9  =  6.2 meters  //  Size 10 = 6.7 meters

Which size should you buy? 

Many people with a baby can do a front wrap cross carry (see the FWCC tutorial here) in a size 6 woven wrap, which means that person's "base" size is a 6. Larger frames, those with larger ribcages or busts, or those with big toddlers might be base 7 or 8 or 9, and smaller frames might be base 5 or occasionally base 4. However, any person can use any size woven wrap.

With a woven wrap, you can wear your baby or toddler in a variety of ways: on your front, hip, and/or back (instruction manual provided) -- and no need to "size up" as baby grows if you have a Bijou! We are also proud that any person can wear any size woven wrap Bijou makes (3 through 9, generally). The size simply determines the carries done by that person with that wrap.

There are hundreds of ways to babywear with a woven. A short wrap is nice for on-the-go. Long wraps are great for reinforcing passes that add support. Medium wraps are versatile; some love them for nursing in a front wrap cross carry tied under bum (see the FWCC TUB How To).


During its first bath your wrap will shrink slightly, which is normal. We cut the fabric so that it will shrink to the size that you ordered (within tolerances). 

ENJOY! See the included instructional booklet for carries specific to your purchase, find the same instructions at the how-to link above in the menu, or watch video tutorials HERE
