Outsourcing

Today someone asked me why we don't have our slings made outside the US. It would be so much less expensive. True. This is not the first time I've heard this question, and it probably won't be the last, either.

So why don't we?

Producing our slings in the USA is important to us. We support our local economy and hopefully reduce our impact on global warming by not shipping around the world and back. Our slings are sewn right here in Austin, Texas, so we are able to keep a close eye on production. The hard-working people who sew our slings are like family to us. We like seeing their faces all the time, and holding their adorably chubby grandbaby.

With all the safety problems with China this year, buying baby carriers that are made in the US also helps our customers feel safer.

So, for a variety of reasons, we do not have any plans currently to produce outside the US.

Our goal has never been to be the cheapest, but to be the best. It means we have grown more slowly than some of our competitors, but we are growing something we are proud of.
