Style meets goodness with this uniquely designed Umba print carrier by Ergobaby Guest Designer Christy Turlington Burns. Created to benefit Every Mother Counts, Christy’s non-profit dedicated to maternal health worldwide, this bold pattern originates from a small businesswoman and mother in Togo using wooden blocks to create the perfectly “imperfect” blue and brown print. With orange accents and leather waist band, you can be sure of two things; you’ll get a lot of compliments on your baby carrier, and you’ll be supporting mothers and children around the world with your purchase.
Christy Turlington-Burns chose this authentic African fabric to merge the unique sensibilities of African textile design with a fashionable, one-of-a kind twist on products parents use every day.
The “Umba” pattern was created by Chantal, a businesswoman in Togo, who provides for her family through textile design. Her batik method involves a specially carved wood stamp, hot wax and a white piece of cotton. Ergobaby is proud to work with The Collaborative Group, an organization that brings sustainable employment to women around the globe, to source design from the very regions served by the Every Mother Counts partnership.
