100% Cotton is never bleached. Dyeing and finishing processes use no chemical finishes, formaldehyde, halogen-organic compounds, aromatic amines or brighteners. Wraps are easy to care for and may be washed in hot water, tumble or line-dried.
Girasol wraps are handwoven on traditional looms in Guatemala. Due to the highly-specialized hand-weaving technique, it is common for Girasols to have small irregularities in their fabric, such as small weavers knots, occasional skipped threads in the design, or slightly loose pieces of yarn called "pulls." These cosmetic variances make each wrap one-of-a-kind and have no effect on the safety or quality of the carrier. Small tags, which are sewn into the center of the wrap to mark the middle of the fabric for ease of use, may vary in placement from the exact center by approximately 12 inches. If you have any questions or concerns about these details, or wish for more clarification on a wrap you are considering or have purchased, please contact us so we may further assist you. If you order a Girasol from our online shop, it is with the assumption that you understand and accept the nature of these handwoven wraps.
