Review:

So a package fresh from India arrives on my doorstep and I knew it was IT. I slowly opened the package and two beautiful pouches are inside and one of them is Terra Indio. It was love at first sight and I think my heart skipped a beat because I have always dreamed of one day visiting the Taj Majal and it seemed like it came over to visit me. It also reminded me of my favorite Disney movie as a child, Aladdin; yes the Magic Carpet! There is just so much story and history on the face of this wrap, like visiting an old church or ruins and being mesmerized by the timelessness of it that although it is old, it has endured so much through the ages and has emerged even more beautiful.

DESIGN

This is a classic. The paisley patterns and the bejeweled elephants, its earth tones and simplicity took my breath away. This elegant wrap is definitely for special occasions. It was too special not to wear for one that I just had to wear it on my friend’s wedding and it beautifully accentuated my neutral colored dress. Of course I got compliments for it as expected.

WEAVE

This wrap is marshmallow soft. The weave is loose and the wrap is perfect for the Philippine weather where it is almost always hot and humid. I could wrap my little girl with this even with multiple passes. Thin and airy, my 7 month old loves to be worn in here. She has nursed, slept, observed in quiet content the world around her while being worn in this wrap. I could not resist using it as a blanket, so we did.

Just another ordinary day. Babywearing is clearly ingrained in our daily life.

SUPPORT/GRIP

This is a lightweight wrap and as expected, it is not as supportive or as forgiving. A bad wrap job will result to achy shoulders or a popped seat. I find that I have to make sure I tighten strand by strand by stand and make sure my baby is snug as a bug otherwise she likes to lean or straighten her legs. This beauty is soft and smooth and even silky. It literally glides when I make passes but it has zero grip thus is definitely not for beginners. In my personal opinion, this is best for small babies or short wearing for toddlers. I have a 33 month old I didn’t bother wearing on Terra Indio – I was enjoying carrying my littlest with her!

Overall, I had a beautiful and bittersweet experience with Terra Indio; I really hate to send her off to her next tester. I love love love this wrap and am honored to be selected to be part of this test group.
