Atitlan is here!


A few months ago, PAXbaby hosted a contest very different from standard design-a-wrap gigs; this contest gathered ALL your best ideas for names and then PAXmommy Jillian designed a Girasol wrap to fit the wining name! Out of all the hundreds of names submitted, one very special name was far and beyond the outstanding favorite, and that was ATITLAN, which means “where the rainbow gets its colors,” in Mayan, submitted by Amber P; thank you so much!

With name in hand, PAXmommy Jillian delved into researching this amazing epithet and lo and behold, found an incredible coincidence!! Our actual Girasol weavers sit and weave our gorgeous wraps on looms in a small village lakeside in Guatemala, and the name of that lake is none other than Atitlan! It was MEANT to be!!!! To make it even better, PAXmommy Christina honeymooned in the same area years ago and was able to share with PAXmommy Jillian pictures from her trip, inspiring her with the rich colors that are so prominent in the region. These bright shades are created to remind us of the women’s skirts, their shawls, and the beautiful fruits that they offer for sale in the markets! The black stripes and geometric print are an artistic representation of the ruins as seen from above, each black line shows a “shadow” of a stair shape on the sides of these impressive structures.

As Atitlan promised, this woven wrap flamboyantly creates an ode to its very own roots, and you can be part of it all by wearing your baby just as the women do in Guatemala as they sit by Lake Atitlan and hand weave the very wrap you are purchasing.

Get ready for Atitlan, stocking Monday June 29th, 2015 at 10:00am PDT.

VV Emeibaby!

PAXbaby_emeibaby_VV_Vice versa_WC_#babycate

Well… I would say this is a winning combination!!! Wouldn’t you???

It is no secret around these parts that the PAXmommies are in love with the Emeibaby, but did you know why??

Not only is it a buckle carrier, but it also has the perfect fit of a woven wrap AND has the ability to grow with your baby! The first hybrid carrier of its kind, and easily the carrier that we recommend the most!

The Emeibaby is one of the TOP soft structured carriers around and here are a few of the top reasons behind that statement:
– you do not need an infant insert in order to carry a newborn
– the Emeibaby’s waist band can cinch down to 25″
– easy to use
– no long piece of fabric to juggle
– grows with your baby (or can be worn with your toddler one day, baby the next)

PLUS, we also are in LOVE with the fact that we are able to have our VERY OWN PAXexclusive Emeibabys now!!
First there was DOUBLE RAINBOW, and now… Vice VERSA!!!!

 Have you found the Emeibaby love yet??

Xelas are coming!!!

Xela’s Rainbow was designed by a babywearing mom named Jamie and named after her son, Alex, hence “Xela” which is Alex backwards! Rainbow stripes separated by bronze stripes result in one of the most well loved Gira rainbows in babywearing history!

Xela *cream* & *purpura llamativa* in THREE different weaves (twill, DW &HB) will stock, here, HQ this Thursday, June 4th at 10:00am PDT.




Which weft and weave has you making googoo eyes???
Happy stalking!!

MySols are coming…

PAXbaby_mysols_surprise rainbow_girasol_collage

Psssst… MySols are coming… Surprise Rainbow style!!
If you have been waiting for these beauties, the wait is soon over!

The MySol is a wrap conversion Mei Tai with a fabulous fit for most babywearers! Carry your baby safely, comfortably and ergonomically from birth to toddler in front or on your back. The carrier design is based on traditional Asian baby carriers but has been adapted to modern needs with its adjustable front panel and extra carrying bags.

The MySol is made from two layers of Girasol wrap fabric that nestles like a second skin around the baby being carried! Worn with either side facing out, the MySol is essentially reversible lengthening its life span and doubling its usability!

The MySol has been designed to grow with the child in order to ensure that babywearers get the most for their money and can use it for as long as possible: the width of the material between the legs may be easily adjusted – ideal for baby’s ergonomic M position with knees higher than bum!  The back of the MySol may be extended so that the carrier will still safely and comfortably fit even after your baby has grown into a toddler! The integrated hood supports your sleeping baby’s head and protects it against the sun; the hood’s width is also adjustable.

Lightly padded shoulder straps and a padded waistband also make the MySol so comfy. Your carrier will include a chest belt as well as a practical hip bag, and a storage bag!!!  Girasol’s My Sol have been lovingly woven and sewn in small workshops in Guatemala, and finished entirely from hand loomed woven wrap fabric!!!

Wear the MySol with love!

Toddler Worthy

PAXbaby_rio_girasol_toddler worthy meme

This is a phrase we hear in the babywearing world quite often…what does toddler worthy mean to you?

We all know that the majority of stretchy wraps (not including JPMBB or Wrapsody) are outgrown at 15lbs, but what about woven wraps? Can your baby be too big, too heavy, too long for a woven wrap?  The answer is kind of up in the air, and really seems to all boils down to personal preference.  If a wrap is tightened carefully, strand by strand, it should be “toddler worthy”.

FREE Friday with Wrap Scrap Stash

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Wrap Scrap Stash
(the company ;))

Our FREE FRIDAY giveaway this week is a fabulous assortment of wrap scrap items in ZIG ZAG herringbone, including a camera strap cover, paci clip, key fob and headband!

A little about the mama behind the business:

Alex is a WAHM and full-time home schooler.

After making herself a purse one day out of a Double Rainbow *purpura Romana* woven wrap, she fell in love. After that, she knew that there were so many pretty rainbows out there just waiting for things to be created from them!  She wanted something that she could use on a daily basis not only now, but after her baby wearing days were long over. Alex thought to herself that she surely could not be the only mama out there with that desire, and so Wrap Scrap Stash was created.

Since that first purse, her business has grown more than she ever imagined and she gives her thanks all to her wonderful customers. Recently Alex has been able to branch out from just accessories (purses, headbands, diaper bags, etc) to being able to offer wrap scrap accessories that coordinate with Tula wrap conversion baby carriers.

To ensure the safety of her customers’ children, all of Alex’s handmade items meet CPSC and CPSIA safety requirements and regulations.

Special PAXfriend discount code: 10% off entire in-stock purchase with the code PAX10.
