Where are your ring slings made?

Potter & Pehar slings are proudly designed and sewn in Toronto, Ontario. 

Are your ring slings safe?

Yes! Your baby's safety is of utmost importance to us. Potter & Pehar slings are made with quality linen and in compliance with Canadian and American safety regulations. Our aluminum rings are weight tested to over 200 pounds.

We are members of the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA). The BCIA helps to improve safety standards for baby carriers. Our ring slings are compliant with the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and follow the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for ring slings. 

Please read, understand and implement the safety instructions found in the instructional booklet provided with your sling. Local baby wearing groups and educators are wonderful resources for additional wearing tips. 

Why Linen?

Linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant. The flax plant is highly valued as it requires a lot of attention to cultivate. Linen textiles are beloved globally, and have been for centuries, as they are cool to touch, smooth and soften with repeated use and wash. Linen is extremely breathable, naturally hypoallergenic and has high moisture absorbency. This makes it suitable for warm climates but will also keep your little love warm and secure during cooler months. Coupled with it’s structure and ability to keep its shape, it has wonderful clean lines and draping effect which lends an amazing aesthetic to our slings.

How do I wash my sling?

We recommend you hand or machine wash in cold water, lay flat or hang to dry. While it’s not necessary to iron your sling, linen does naturally wrinkle and can be ironed smooth.
