My name is Claire and I'm a California native living in Sweden! I moved in 2011 with (my then boyfriend, now husband) Niclas after meeting in college. We have two boys, Samuel (3 yo) and Oscar (18 months), and expecting our third child in early February!
I fell in love with linen ring slings when my second son was born in May 2018 and my best friend gifted me one. Using a ring sling allowed me to be close to my baby we while running after my toddler. I wanted to help other parents keep their little ones close while having two hands free with the comfort and style of beautiful linens.
A few months in to my maternity leave, one of the many great things about Sweden, I decided to order some fabric and rings and make a few slings to try to sell. It became more and more popular and I made it in to a hobby business (hobbyverksamhet). As the following and the sales increased, I crossed over from hobby business to small business owner (enskild firma) in September 2018.
While I was still on maternity leave, all slings were sewn while my boys napped or after they've gone to bed. I have been working full time since September when my youngest started preschool.
I started with only ring slings but now have long wraps, meh dais, and binkie clips as well. All my products are 100% linen and the aluminum rings are made and tested for babywearing products.
