Maple--a natural flax.
We use only the finest Irish linens in colors suitable for both mothers and fathers. Naturally antibacterial, cool to wear, and perfect for all climates, linen is also easy to care for and becomes softer and stronger over time. Handcrafted from a single layer of linen, each sling is lightweight, breathable, and adjustable.
All Sakura Bloom slings are machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, fully reversible, designed to fit all body shapes and sizes, and easy to use with newborns and toddlers. Each comes with a detailed booklet with instructions, tips, and many photos. Whether a special treat for yourself or a gift for a friend or loved one, each of our slings is beautifully packaged and sent with care.

I have been using this with my newborn for several weeks including a zoo trip. It is very good quality and looks good. I have been very pleased with how the linen feels secure holding the baby and stays in place. I love how well it keeps cool in the heat. I am a petite 5' 1'' and found this length of material to be fine. There is enough extra to shade the baby or cover up for nursing.

I actually bought one for my sister, when it arrived in the mail I instantly had to order one for myself! The maple color has a subtle grey tone which I love. It matches anything and everything! They last quite a while and are amazingly cool for hot climates. I just looooove my Sakura bloom slings! Worth every penny! I own 3 now and can't wait to purchase a silk one! They're so gorgeous :)

Both baby and I love it - super easy to use, comfortable and best of all light weight for the summer months (I'm in NYC). Allows me to run errands without the bulk of the stroller or wear her around the house when I need to get stuff done and she isn't tired (though she easily falls asleep once inside). Definitely recommending to my mom friends.

This is our first time using a sling and I was a little nervous at first. With a little practice, my baby and I got it down and we are LOVING IT! It immediately calms my baby. I haven't used out bulky stroller in weeks! I don't know how we lived without this. Best purchase yet!

Received this very quickly! Beautiful quality item. I've never used a ring sling before and there is a little learning curve. I've had it two weeks and have had my baby in it at least every day or two. He's used to a soft structured carrier and a stretchy wrap so the concept of being worn is not new to him. My biggest struggle is in getting a good seat. I've been able to get a good enough seat every single time, but I'm still fine tuning my techniques to get a better one. There's no doubt this is cooler temp-wise than any other carrier I have. I'm glad I bought this and think I'll soon be confident enough to wear it out of the neighborhood. I will say that if I ever have another baby this will be their first carrier for sure and I will be an old pro by then.

My husband's exact words to describe our Sakura Bloom sling was "Honey, it is Heaven sent." Our daughter loves snuggling next to me during our walks. We nurse, bounce, sway, walk, and clean in our sling. As her sleep schedule has been changing and teething pains have increased, wearing her causes her to fall asleep in seconds. It brings tears to my eyes to see her so content and happy being so close to her mommy and daddy, we kiss her over and over again. This sling has blessed our family beyond words and I have gained so much confidence as a mother through this community of baby-weares. I love supporting such an amazing company and I absolutely can't wait to order more. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

As a first time mom, I love this sling! While I was pregnant, I was really looking forward to wearing our daughter. Now that she's here, she loves it! She falls asleep in it instantly (she loves being cuddled up to my chest and dad's as well), which makes it easy for us to take walks, do things around the house, etc. It's nice to have her on me, but have both of my hands free. I'm glad this is something that I'll get to use as she continues to grow (right now she's 10 days old). We've had some road blocks with breast feeding, so I can't say how that goes with the sling. But I could see how it would be easy (I'm looking forward to that one day soon!)
I really like the linen texture and the maple color. We've recently had a bit of a heat wave, but are still braving the outdoors to give our dog his walks. I was surprised at how well the material breathes. Before using it, I was a bit concerned about having too much weight on one shoulder, but that hasn't been an issue. The weight feels like it's evenly distributed and I've been able to wear her for long periods of time without any back or shoulder pain.
The first time I used it, my husband had to help me put it on and adjust it. After that first time, I've been able to easily do it myself. Getting her in, adjusting the ring, and taking her out have been very easy and feel more natural everytime we use it.
This product was out of stock for a while, so I contacted Sakura Bloom to ask when it would be available. I got a quick response and had some ther questions answered as well. Once we ordered it, the turn around time on receiving it was very quick (just a couple days I think).
I would recommend this sling to any moms and dad's who want to wear their babes. Such a great product! Thank you, Sakura Bloom!
