German Storchenwiege Baby Slings are made to last. They can be handed down through many generations. Because of the special weave they embrace your baby perfectly, yet do not wear or stretch out. A Storchenwiege distributes the weight of your baby evenly on your shoulder for many hours of baby wearing enjoyment.

Storchenwiege slings are known by dealers as slings they only see once, namely when it leaves their warehouse. Because of the superb quality and frequent checks, slings with flaws are very rare. In the U.S. about 1-2 per year. Other brands have by far more and cause moms, who are dealers, a head ache, not to mention a loss in  income. The Storchenwiege is a favorite among dealers because of the manufacturer being a stickler for the highest quality available. Therefore there is no room to offer flawed Storchenwiege slings for a discount. Flawed Storchs are almost extinct and should be on the endangered species list, along with being handled like misprinted money is.

 

The special weave

This is the only baby sling on the market with this special intricate rare weave.  You will find the German Storchenwiege Baby  Sling to have more of a silky soft feel than other cotton carriers.  The sling was developed especially to support baby's back properly, to be comfortable for long periods of time, and to be durable (even with a 4 year old, Storchenwiege is comfortable and strong). The make eliminates the need to purchase other baby carriers, other woven wraparound slings or even a stroller.


  • Unique, beautiful patterns and colors
  • The company's founder and fabric developer is a textile engineer, a father, and grandfather. His love for his profession and children shows in every Storchenwiege Baby Sling as it lovingly embraces your family with just one simple knot.
  • All cotton used in the Storchenwiege Baby Sling is from  strictly regulated cotton farms and are all Oeko Text 100 certified cotton, free from chemicals or residue in the fabric.  More info Oeko Tex 100 link.
  • The weave differs from all other slings in the yarn strength used.
  • In both directions (warp and woof ) of the cross weave Storchenwiege  uses a double strength, not simple thread.  All other wraparound baby slings use the double strength yarn only in one direction. This helps support baby's back, the correct leg positions,  baby wearer's shoulders and back better than other wrap style slings.  
  • Not only does the strong weave help the durability of the baby sling, it also holds the tied knot better as it doesn't give after the baby is placed in it. 
  • This special weave does not influence the elasticity which is necessary to embrace your baby. Neither does it influece the airflow through the woven fabric.
  • The fabric is prewashed and preshrunk. This ensures the fabric has a minimal shrinkage of 2.5%. Most fabrics have far more. Especially for a woven wraparound style sling this is essential in knowing the fabric lenghts is right for you before washing the sling and not being able to exchange it after.
  • All slings are washed and dried without tension on the fabric.
  • No chemicals are used in any of the proceedure.
  • Storchenwiege is manufactured in Sachsen, Germany, under strict environmental regulations. German manufacturing alone stands for the highest quality possible.
  • Storchenwiege Baby Slings are Oeko Text 100 certified
  • Storchenwiege Baby Slings have a double hemline for durability and the correct embracing of your baby's back and leg position.
  • All Storchenwiege Baby Slings have tapered ends to ensure easy tying.  They form a pallelogram.
  • Looks new after many washes and years of use. Other brands look quite washed out after only one year of use.
  • All Storchenwiege Baby Slings come with detailed instructions. The instructions differ from others on the market as they give some extra hints in tying the sling.  This is great for beginners as well as "Sling Fanatics."   The instructions were developed with the help of a certified teacher of baby wearing from the Dresden, Germany, school of baby wearing instructors. It shows.

Most women can tie everything with a 4.10 m or 4.60 m. For men wearing babies a size 4.60 m or 5.20 m works best. It is best to get the most comfortable size for the main baby wearer, everybody else still has plenty of options.
