Founded in 2014, Ankalia Textiles has quickly established itself as Australia’s leading manufacturer of Australian-made baby carriers. Kellie has built many of her own personal ethics and values around sustainability and reducing waste, slow fashion, supporting women in business and supporting Australian companies into Ankalia’s business practices.
The Ankalia team works with local suppliers, artists and textile mills to craft, design and weave premium-quality baby carriers and products designed to take caregivers through many seasons of babywearing and parenting. Ankalia carriers are Australian designed, woven and hand-finished
Ankalia Textiles and Nest Nappies cannot be held responsible or liable for any accidents that could occur as a result of the misuse of carrier. We pride ourselves in helping our customers, so please, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
Our wraps and converted carrriers are made from all natural fibres and, with few exceptions, are as easy to care for as your regular household laundry.
Firstly, you must look over your wrap before washing for the first time. We ask you to look for any weaving flaws that we may have missed along the way. If you are un happy with your carrier then please contact us.
Your wrap will arrive to you in what is called “loom state”. Therefore, it is very important that you wash and iron your wrap before use. This sets the weave, removes any residue and will fluff up your wrap to make it soft and smooshy.
Wash your 100% cotton wraps first in one cold wash on a medium spin, and on gentle cycle for subsequent washing. We do not recommend the use of colour catchers with any textiles. Tumble dry on low. Ironing is strongly encouraged to prevent premature wear at the rails and other highly creased areas. It is normal for your wrap to shrink in the first wash. We have taken into account shrinkage when we have cut and hemmed our wraps.
Ring Slings should be covered with a piece of cloth or sock. This not only protects the rings but also your washing machine.
