Fabrics Used

All raw edges of our baby carrier are overlocked and stitched with triple stitching on the inside. The outside is stitched with 2 rows of Top stitching and x boxed. Gutermann thread is used throughout.

For the straps on your SimplyMeiTai I use the following: Coloured canvas, cotton drill or our very popular soft needlecord; in a range of beautiful colours. You might also opt for our luxurious wide wale corduroy, very soft and very strokeable. If you’d like to see the colours of the coloured canvas or corduroy, please contact me and I can send you a shade card.

Cotton drill is used for the inner bodice, this has two layers of cotton drill for extra stability. Cotton is also used as the fabric overlay and a Fairtrade 100% Dupion Silk is used on the reverse (these silks also come in a wide range of colours). I find that using 100% cotton throughout is best for baby because it is fully breathable, which means your baby is less likely to get hot and uncomfortable.

If there is a favourite fabric that you would like me to use for the body, you would probably want to consider getting a custom carrier. Check the ‘Custom Mei Tai’ page for information on getting a unique SimplyMeiTai, and the blog on the homepage for details on when the next custom slots will be listed.


Ideally, your SimplyMeiTai should be spot cleaned with a sponge and water. If you have got too much dirt on it to be cleaned by water and a sponge alone, you can consider washing on either a hand wash cycle or a cold wash and allowed to air dry or on a radiator if this isn’t possible.
