To celebrate International Babywearing Week 2015, we have teamed up with Babylonia, a fabulous Belgian brand of woven wraps made in fair-trade in India. Their cotton woven wraps are wonderfully soft and cushy out of the box and come in a variety of gorgeous colors. Paired with our Georgia mei tai carrier, the winner will be celebrating IBW 2015 (and beyond!) in style.
So back in February Karyn Thurston of the blog Girl of Cardigan wrote this awesome post that knocked our socks off. With poetic grace, Karyn brought “the catbird seat” (the phrase our company is named after) to life. And this project was born.
Since Karyn is based in Portland, OR, we decided to shoot there. Karyn hooked us up with her friend, filmmaker Liz Vice (who sings beautifully in addition to making amazing films) and we got to work. Making a video was a new endeavor for us. We learned so much along the way. At first we were nervous about taking on this kind of project, but by the end, we knew we had created something special.
And today, we are so excited to be sharing this video with you. We hope you agree that it shows both moms, dads and babies in the place of best advantage—the catbird seat. From convenience, to connection, to mobility; from comfort, to security, to freedom—there’s no better place to be.
To celebrate our video’s public premier, we are giving away the 4 carriers shown in the video: Sunset mei tei, Annika mei tei, Zephyr pikkolo, and Georgia pikkolo. Tell us which carrier or scene is your favorite; comment (here or on Facebook), share, and then fill complete the Rafflecopter entry form for a chance to win.
Forty-six great brands have gotten together to give 3 lucky families the Valentine’s present of their dreams! With prizes totaling more than $6,000 (!) this is going to be a fabulous giveaway. In Prize Package 1, you can win a pikkolo baby carrier along with all the other fabulous prizes seen below.
