General Questions

Absolutely! Life with children can be messy, so we’ve designed our ring slings to be easy to clean. Depending on the extent of the stains, either machine wash, spot treat, or wash your baby carrier. Read more about our care instructions here.

hope&plum baby carriers are hand-sewn in Minnesota by work-at-home mothers. Not only does producing locally reduce our impact on the planet, the fair wages we pay also directly support local families.

Our current ring sling range comes in a choice of linen, linen/cotton and our signature hemp/cotton blend. They all have different features, get softer with use and have a valid space in our sling lineup for a reason.

Our linen and linen/cotton blends are lightweight and breathable yet extremely strong. Both come in a single layer. The signature hope&plum hemp/cotton blend is incredibly supportive yet soft and moldable. It absorbs moisture and keeps you (and your babe) feeling dry and cool in the warmer months and snuggly warm when it’s chilly. This blend comes in a double layer.
