"I am in love with my hemp blend ring sling. I’ve used other brands but H&P has the softest, most supportive slings out there. And their customer service is amazing. Mallory and Skye have cultivated an amazing community.I am particularly grateful for their options for sizing. Having the option of longer lengths to accommodate my larger/plus sized body is very much appreciated."

"These hemp blend slings are so soft and supportive! Perfect for newborns through toddlerhood! And the more you wear and was then the BETTER they get! Also the owners are some of the sweetest women ever, who have created the best community! We love our hope & plum!"

How it all started!

From small things, big things grow.

The same can be said for hope&plum.

Let’s rewind to 2015.

Picture two women from different corners of the US, each facing their own fertility challenges. Both of us were trying to conceive our first child when we crossed paths in an online community for women looking for the same answers. We quickly bonded over our shared experiences and thankfully added MOM to our job title―several times.

Our friendship grew over sanity-saving tips, online chats and invaluable product hacks.

Ultimately we found we shared a deep-rooted love of babywearing (and ring slings in particular).

And the rest is history.

We co-founded hope&plum in 2018 and have continually worked towards growing an incredible community of hope&plum fans with our sustainable, diverse, and inclusive take on parenting ever since.

Hi, I’m Skye.

With my firstborn, a traumatic birth experience that led to my daughter in the NICU and me in the ICU meant I couldn’t snuggle her for the first few days of her life.

Babywearing―and ring slings―quickly became my way to make up for ‘lost time’ and ultimately nurtured the strong bond with my babe I longed for at birth.

Crunching numbers, liaising with hope&plum suppliers and planning our next marketing campaign is my thing.

But I also have a career as a full-time corporate lawyer in Washington, D.C. That’s when I’m not chasing after my 3 super adorable munchkins.

Yes, I like it busy.

Understandable when you’re the eldest of 10 siblings, right?

Hi, I’m Mallory.

I’m a trained babywearing educator and still have to pinch myself that hope&plum allows me to support new parents on their babywearing journey every single day.

I’m a mom of 3 adorable kiddos who keep me on my toes.

My husband and I are currently renovating our family home in Minneapolis, MN. It’s going to be colorful if my love of all things bright is anything to go by.

I spend my hope&plum days designing and commissioning new slings, sending your orders on their merry way, and supporting our incredible community with babywearing advice.

hope&plum means I get to live my passion.

And I couldn’t ask for more.

Conscious choices can have a massive impact on us as individuals and as a society. At hope&plum these choices mean we’re in it for more than a quick dollar.

WE CHOOSE SUSTAINABILITY.

As a business and personally, the environment is close to our hearts. That’s why we repurpose fabric scraps into smaller hope&plum products, sew them locally, and only source the best natural fibers and dyes to minimize our impact on the planet.

WE CHOOSE EMPOWERMENT.

Education is an important part of what we do. Ring slings are incredibly effective for your baby-wearing journey. And they’re even more effective with our FREE 1:1 fit consultations and hands-on tutorials that will turn your hope&plum baby carrier sling into your favorite parenting accessory every day of the week.

WE CHOOSE CONNECTION.

Our support doesn’t end when your ring sling arrives on your doorstep. The hope&plum Facebook community of 1,400+ babywearing fans has you covered. Ask product-related questions, connect with fellow moms and discover new ways to show off your ring sling. You can even sell your used hope&plum ring sling in our popular buy/swap/sell Facebook Community when your babe wants to explore the world more independently.

WE CHOOSE INCLUSIVITY.

No two caregivers - or babies - are perfectly alike, and we acknowledge and celebrate our differences! From our team to our online community, and our sling lengths to our social media content, we consciously strive for inclusion, diversity and empathy. We are committed to using our platform to uplift and support marginalized voices.

But wait, there’s more.

Meet some of the talented souls behind the hope&plum magic. Their passion and drive are woven into every single ring sling.

Hi, I’m Gianna.

Creative Director

Central Pennsylvania

My job is to make things pretty. Every day. And it’s so much fun!

My house is covered in carpet as far as the eye can see. Less than ideal when you’re a mom of a messy threenager and newborn.

I took on the creative side of things for hope&plum in 2020 and adore playing with new designs.

When I’m not wearing my hope&plum hat, I love to play piano, guitar and bass or weave the odd rug.

special thanks

A huge shoutout also goes to our family and countless friends who have contributed to the hope&plum dream in some shape or form over the years.

We couldn’t have done it without their support!
