Magic Summer isn’t jut another exhibition. It’s an urban baby carrier festival where we’ve thrown out the stalls and workshops, and brought together some amazing brands for a party. Get to know our participating companies here!
At first we made carriers for friends and family. But whenever we travelled, strangers would inquire about our carriers. And that was just what I needed to finally focus my energy and passion. Since then, I have loved every single moment of it! We are now a family of five living in San Diego… still making carriers, still keeping our children close, and making many memories!
Today, it has become our mission to promote babywearing worldwide through our quality products, education, and community outreach in order to form a more perfect union between caregiver and child.
We wish you the best on your parenting journey and hope you make lots of babywearing memories, too! 🙂

Babies and toddlers all around the world feel safe and secure in wrap slings produced by our family-run company in Ludwigsburg. The family business is now managed by Tina Hoffmann. At a tender young age, she and her siblings were one of the main factors in DIDYMOS coming into existence in the first place.
As a modern woman with children in the early 1970s, their mother Erika Hoffmann was looking for a practical and uncomplicated way of keeping her newborn twins and two older children, Anna and Tom, close to her while going about her day-to-day tasks. She was inspired by the illustrated book “Children and their Mothers,” which contained pictures of mothers from around the world, many of whom used cloths to carry their children on their bodies. This reminded her of a Mexican carrying cloth that a well travelled friend had brought back for her.
Without any instructions, she began to try out different ways of carrying her children using the cloth. Soon, the young family wouldn’t be able to imagine everyday life without the children being carried in slings. Ultimately, Erika Hoffmann turned her personal passion into a profession and vocation by setting up DIDYMOS in 1972. As a result, she re-introduced babywearing, a practice she initially adopted for both emotional and practical reasons, to the German-speaking world.

I fell in love with babywearing in the fall of 2016. Baby K was a few weeks old when I wrapped her for the first time and it instantly felt “right”. My first baby wrap was in many ways perfect for a beginner, but it was never love. The design of the wrap didn’t make me feel beautiful, chic or fashionable – more like the opposite. That, combined with having a hard time figuring out how to balance the “old” me with my new role as a mom, made me sad when leaving the house while wearing.
I soon found myself searching the Internet for a wrap that looked as good as wearing baby K felt. Picky as I am, it turned out to be quite a challenge and one day Hansotto said “Why don’t we just make our own?”. Despite no previous experience with the fashion industry and no long-lasting desire to run a business, Levate was born. We strive to make timeless wraps designed by young Danish designers in Nordic colours that match a modern living.
The fairy tale of Levate has just begun do you want to join?
My passion became a vocation. That’s how my leather workshop, Täschnerei / Sattlerei, was first built on a small scale and became a full-time job. All designs are designed and developed by me. I do EVERYTHING in my craft business myself, no matter if cutting, sewing, packaging, designing webshop, customer inquiries …
I make high-quality leather products mostly in connection with baby carrier cloths, but also completely made of leather items such as personalized bracelets and other beautiful things. My passion is for parents during and after the the babywearing time ends to make beautiful accessories that are still great to use / combine long after the baby becomes a toddler. Do you have a special request for your bag? Let me know, I like to work with you together with your personal custom!
In Omnifera we are passionate lovers of babywearing, art and design. Our aim is to bring you new interpretations of old themes but also completely new ideas. Although we never know where our imagination will lead us, we love adventures!

My vision for wraps wasn’t simply to introduce another wrap to the market. I wanted to create innovative wraps, woven from luxurious materials that were designed, manufactured and sold in the UK and abroad. Whether a mum is new or already familiar with babywearing products, I wanted my products to be lovingly conceived and appeal to all.
Woven Wings Baby wraps are woven in the UK in a renowned Mill specialising solely in bespoke high-end quality textiles. Established since 1720 working in collaboration with luxury Fashion houses and couture designers they produce fabrics that are of the highest quality and demand. Fibres are carefully and ethically sourced, and all yarns are dyed in-house allowing for one-of-kind colours. Some of my wraps will feature our non-chemical luxurious finish which makes them blankety soft straight out of the bag and requires no breaking in.
All of my wraps have been put together with significant attention to detail and a lot of love and care. I hope you enjoy many special moments with your little ones wrapped in Woven Wings.
