The brand offers intricately designed pieces like shawls, stoles and dupattas, utilising traditional techniques like Dabu block printing, Kutch hand weaving and sufi embroidery. Their leather work is especially striking — we love their Kolhapuri chappals and sling bags. No two pieces look the same, as everything is produced on a small scale. Want to meet the talent behind your order? Just ask them and they’ll happily connect you! If you have a young one, check out their range of wooden toys and Ladakh wool figurines.

Soul Slings

Maze Jade carriers and accessories are now available on www.soulslings.com Maze Jade is all the things you have loved about the original Maze. At 280 GSM the fabric is delightfully cushy on your skin, without being at all bulky on your body. It combines newborn-worthy softness with toddler-worthy sturdiness perfectly. In fact, this all-weather medium weight wrap is soft right out of the box and ready to #wearallthebabies! And like the original Maze, Maze Jade is also all cotton, so easy to maintain and use. Soul jacquards are woven in an ethical and environment-friendly mill from Southern India, which uses only wind and solar energy to run their entire factory. They are a completely green manufacturing unit and after using the energy they need they have surplus to send back into the grid. Only the best quality baby-safe dyes are used and no child labour is involved at any stage. Our jacquards are finished and are converted into carriers and accessories in-house at Soul factory based in Bangalore India. #newrelease #souljacquard #soulslings #soulwovens #wovenwraps #affordablebabywearing #ethicalbabywearing #MadeinIndia #Autumncollection #Wintercollection [Image description: series of photos of two Indian women wearing their toddlers in carriers made from black and green geometric-patterned wrap fabric]
