Ring slings are elegant and are often used for special occasions such as Christenings and weddings. They are quick to use, especially handy for short trips from the car to shop, or for a child that wants up and down a lot. They are also light and pack up small.
We offer two shoulder styles for our ring slings. Our original Highland Pleat Shoulder was developed working closely with our highly experienced tailor. It is similar to the intricate pleat work on kilts, specifically the Kingussie kilt, which is one of the oldest styles and is unique in utilising both box and knife pleats. The design looks elegant and is extremely comfortable to wear. Symmetrical pleats move away from the centre of the sling to ensure an even distribution of the baby’s weight whilst moulding easily around the wearer’s shoulder.
We are now adding the Gathered Ring Sling Shoulder to our products. This has been widely used by babywearers for quite some time now and is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is relatively unstructured as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds. This allows you to spread and move the fabric very easily on your shoulder for even weight distribution.
Oscha ring slings can also be worn on either shoulder. We include an instruction brochure with each sling, please take time to study this and practice as ring slings are extremely comfy and easy to use but it can take a little time and some adjustment to hit the sweet spot!
Our ring slings measure 190cm – 2m after washing and have been thoroughly safety tested.
