This summer our theme color is green! Vanamo Kide Vappu baby wrap is weaved with a lively mixture of spring grass green cotton, white linen and sky blue bourette silk!
The combination of linen & silk makes the wrap light & airy - yet strong and supportive.
Although the linen-silk Vanamo wrap is cool and airy for the summer, the wrap can be used during all seasons. Kide weave is diagonally elastic which means that the baby wrap gives an optimum support for the baby and feels comfortable for both the wearer and baby. This thick wrap is great for great for bigger babies and toddlers.
The word ”kide” means ice chrystals and the Kide pattern was inspired by the traditional hand woven Finnish linen textiles. The Kide weave is a complex mixture of twill and tabby weaves which create the unique stuctured, porous and comfortable weave. Kide pattern is designed by textile designer Katja Hynninen.

Kide Vappu was visiting Sweden during the summer months. Below one of the tester moms, Linda, tells about her experiences with Vappu.
"I had the pleasure to host Kide Vappu one week in the end of spring/beginning of summer when all the green was about to explode. I named the green twilightgreen because it looked as the green colours did outside when I took my daughter for evening walks. I like a wrap with good grip and not at lot of elasticity, strong to carry someone heavy but still not thick and bulky. Those qualities makes it easy for me to make the wrapjob exactly as I want it. This is also how I would describe Kide Vappu. When using it I feel "ready to go", ready to perform some tasks. The wrapjob feels steady as a rock for a long period of time. I am also lucky with the size of this wrap as it is a long base -1 for me and therefore is just enough lenght for a double hammock tied in front. No tails that could get stuck or be dirty, and I feel even more ready for those tasks! It is a perfect wrap for double hammock in my taste. The passes stay where they are placed though so you might need to be sure to lower the friction some when putting them in place." -Linda
