SUPU wraps exploded on to the Baby Wearing scene last year and have been whipping up an absolute storm, no pun intended. Jess’ designs are unique and eye catching, with punchy, vibrant colours and an absolute beast of a weave.

The easycare 100% cotton wraps, wrap like no other. The Flight series are lightweight in hand, yet strong and sturdy. They provide a cushiony softness and carry like no other 100% cotton wrap that I’ve tried. North, the NSE exclusive, was Jess’s biggest triumph so far. The grey tones glow and provide a timeless look that contribute to North’s popularity, establishing itself as quite the unicorn already.

If you have had the pleasure of meeting Jess you will know that she is a unique soul. Jess will make time for everyone, adding to the magic of SUPU Wovens. Her customer service and drive to create outstanding quality wraps is fantastic. Not only is Jess passionate about baby wearing she is also an amazing designer with a lifetime of experience in textiles and materials. It’s an absolute joy to see a brand with such a personal and friendly ethos.

Myself and Cass were given the chance to trial Helix Arca just before this year’s NSE. When Arca arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the cushiony wonderfulness of this 100% cotton, double weave wrap. Helix feels marshmallowy and quite thick in hand, like a medium weight wrap that would soften over time and use. The weave seems quite loose compared with other wraps that I have worn in the past and feels silky soft.

The dusky pink and pencil grey compliment each other perfectly. I am a big lover of pink but I know it’s not a colour that I can always make work. Arca’s pink is beautifully muted and subtle, this wrap is ‘just enough’ pink, it’s perfect. Both sides are beautiful, I love how Arca changes it’s character with each side. The bold, striking, pencil grey dominates the ‘right side,’ where as the blush pink and white provide a calming ‘wrong side’ alternative.

The wrapping qualities of Arca do not disappoint. It glides into place and holds strong. I have tried a range of different carries with Arca but I think the four hour Double Hammock with my two stone baby, showed me how fantastically strong and comfortable this wrap really is.

I can honestly say that we have thoroughly enjoyed having Arca here to stay for a few days. Helix is a beautiful weave and I am genuinely excited for it’s release and the future of SUPU Wovens. Thank you Jess for this opportunity.
