The Wrap Show was founded in 2016, with the vision of being a unique experience for those who enjoy using woven baby wraps in their various forms. We’re continuously striving to make our events accessible to even the most casual baby carrier user with lots of outreach, education, and work with brands at every price point. We’re passionate about not only the practicality of wearing your child but the beauty, freedom, and social connections that can come with it.
Our team is focused on delivering high quality events for you. June 2018 we’re focusing on Magic Summer, an urban baby carrier festival in the city. No carriers will be for sale at the event, but brands are offering pre-orders that you can check out on our page. We’re also excited to be bringing Pop Up events to London every first Friday and of course the return of The Wrap Show in 2019.
Who is our team? Read below. We’re always happy to chat baby carriers, woven wraps, events, and more – get in touch!
