Ring sling Zhuub Turquoise

Beautiful ring sling 100% cotton. Sling Handmade in a fabric of pre-Hispanic origin. This fabric has a right and reverse

This is certainly a fabric full of symbolism. The main band composed of six columns of small circles represents the corn kernels (zhubb in zapoteco). The band left with figures in a zig-zag represents bainas bean, another essential food for the Zapotec people. The right side is in honor of the people. Each side of these figures there is a band with one of the friezes or geometric figures that are present in the ceremonial architecture of ancient Zapotec city of Mitla, Mictlan or Lyobaa. This frieze is a representation of the cardinal points for the Zapotec town was six. North-South, East-West and a center that balances these opposites and "projects" to the exaltation of the spirit (the Above) or precipitates in the degradation of the material (the Below).

Ring sling are ideal for babywearing from birth up to 4 years of age. Because of the smallness of their little bodies, newborn babies fit perfectly in the fabric of a ring sling, and it is extremely easy for the mother to take care of the comfort and safety of her baby. Although the weight of 2 to 4 year old babies can already be exhausting for the mother to fall on a single shoulder the ring sling is also an excellent option to carry toddlers who walk or run, especially on short walks. This is because its ease of use allows to raise and lower the child constantly without even removing the baby carrier from the shoulder.
