Care Instructions

Hand Wash
  1. Unthread your sling.

  2. Fill a basin with cold water and add little liquid detergent. You want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes.

  3. Gently swish your sling around for 1 minute. It may lose some dye, that is ok.

  4. Remove the sling from the water and gently squeeze or roll into a towel to remove excess water. 

  5. Hang the sling to dry, inside and out of direct sunlight, or pop it in in the dryer on the low setting (cover the rings with a sock).

  6. Press the sling with lots of steam on your iron's hottest setting to get it nice, soft and floppy.

Machine Wash
  1. Unthread your sling.

  2. Wash it in your machine (alone, cold water, gentle cycle) with a little liquid detergent. You want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes.

  3. Hang the sling to dry, inside and out of direct sunlight, or pop it in in the dryer on the low setting (cover the rings with a sock).

  4. Press the sling with lots of steam on your iron's hottest setting to get it nice, soft and floppy.

*Keep in mind that all of our slings are lovingly crafted from all-natural textiles, so just like a pair of black jeans or a colored t-shirt, each time you wash your sling, it may lose a bit of color.

Storage

To preserve the life of your sling follow our storage recommendations below.

 

For Everyday Storage - We like to keep our slings threaded and ready to go, keeping them out of direct sunlight when not in use. Really the only time you will need to unthread your sling is if you are going to wash it or store it for an extended period of time...

 

Long Term Storage - If you plan to store your sling for an extended period of time we recommend unthreading it, giving it a wash and then either hanging it in a closet or rolling it up to store out of any direct sunlight. Washing it will remove any residue that could eat away at the fibers and rolling/hanging will keep the fabric nice and smooth.

Crafted of fine, all-natural fibers, Sakura Bloom slings infuse lush textiles with a minimalist, modern design. The process begins in our seaside design studio in Leucadia, CA, and then moves to our workshop in coastal Massachusetts where we handcraft each sling with care and ship them off to their new forever homes spanning the globe.

The Sakura Bloom family extends to our active and vibrant community members—moms (and dads!) sharing images and stories on Instagram, retailers banding together to share the latest tips on usage, Facebook groups chatting about the latest colors or where to get that hard-to-find discontinued sling they saw on a friend’s page. From all walks of life, we are brought together by a common purpose, and we learn and grow in our online and real-life interactions with one another.

Supporting local economies and keeping maker artistry alive have been at the core of founder Lynne Banach's vision since Sakura Bloom's inception in 2006, from the hand dyed silks of Brooklyn textile artist Shabd Simon Alexander to the live-edge custom wood desks handcrafted for us by Leucadia local and friend Neiko Pagaduan of Timber Library. And partnering with like-minded, independent boutiques allows us to provide our customers with the lost art of hands-on personalized service, all while keeping the mom-and-pop brick and mortar shops dotting our downtowns alive.

 

As you can see, at Sakura Bloom, small things (and small people) matter. At home, in town, while traveling, a Sakura Bloom sling combines function with fashion, enabling you to parent in your own way while allowing your child to be an active part of the world around him.

About Sakura Bloom

Materials

Linen is a timeless classic, beloved for millennia for its beauty, strength and versatility. Five times stronger than cotton and naturally antibacterial, linen is woven from spun flax -- one of the most sustainable natural fibers in the world. Thermo-regulating with a built-in wicking property, our linen slings breathe wonderfully, keeping you warm and cozy in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. The simple gorgeousness of linen is suited to every occasion, from family beach adventures to special events and everything in between.

Made from a single or dual layer of premium linen, the Classic & Essential Linen Sakura Bloom Baby slings inherits the best qualities of the material. Soft and cool to touch, the Sakura Bloom premium Linen Slings are not just extremely comfortable to use for the parent and the baby but also very durable and easy to maintain.

Linen material makes the slings suitable for both hot and cold weather. The high breathability and ability to absorb moisture makes it a obvious choice for even warm and humid weather.

Other properties of linen also includes non-allergic, antibacterial, and antimycotic, making the Sakura Bloom Premium Linen Baby Slings the natural choice for babies with extra sensitive skin.
