Our signature Izmi Baby Carrier is not like other carriers. It’s designed to look different, feel different, perform in a different way. Izmi is different. We can – and do – describe the Izmi Carrier as a hybrid between a wrap and a multi-position buckle carrier, but that doesn’t really do justice to what we’ve tried to achieve in the Izmi Carrier design. We didn’t just mix up a wrap and a carrier.
When developing Izmi we took all the awesome benefits, comfort and infinite adjustability of traditional Woven Wraps (used by millions of parents all over the world and throughout history) and slowly distilled them into the smallest, easiest to use carrier product that we could create. Over 8 years our developers have made and tried out literally hundreds of sling and carrier test samples, and we think the results show in our finished products. For new parents the Izmi Carrier is intuitive and simple; for experienced Carrying Consultants it offers unlimited ‘tweakability’ to adjust the fit and feel to suit different families.
The Izmi Wrap is also inspired by Woven Wraps. For new wrap users it’s super soft, comfortable and easy to use; for those more experienced our wrap design (the fabric properties, size and finishing) allows you to experiment with all sorts of creative tying methods.
So when you try an Izmi, don’t expect it to compare to other carriers. It doesn’t. An Izmi is a product with a different personality, that comes from a different place. Izmi is inspired by an open-minded passion to share something awesome with as many people as possible, and that’s what we want you to feel when you use one.
