________________________________________

WHY THE STAMP

Our binds are hand stamped to indicate where you begin to knot your wrap. All but one our stamps are hand carved wooden textile blocks from India. The line they give is not perfect,( which we love), creating a unique one of a kind stamped bind.
We choose the ink color for the most harmonious combination.
Our inks are high quality water based textile inks that are heat set.
________________________________________

DYE

The dyed look of these wraps are monochromatic.
The color density varies subtly throughout wrap. Each bind is unique.
The subtle variation of color density is what we love so the wrap is not a flat color but breathes with its hue.
We now use extensively Dharma cold water procion dyes using eco friendly dyeing techniques.
Procion dyes are the chosen dye of the textile industry for they will not wash out and fade. It is the common most utilized dye used on organic clothing due to
the minimal processing and safety of the dye.
Please be careful of claims using vinegar as a dye set. Vinegar is not a dye set for any cellulose (plant) fiber cloth. It is only somewhat helpful as a mordant for wool and silk.
We wash all binds with Dharma Tradings eco friendly detergent which has no perfumes or dyes.
We wash them thoroughly but recommend washing them separately for ease of washing and to remove any last traces of dye that might temporally remain.

FABRIC
The cotton we have chosen is beautiful premium grade, medium weight, unbleached cotton muslin that is PFD, (prepared for dying). This means it has no sizing applied and is even cleaner then your typical unbleached muslin. It is a fabric utilized and loved by many textile artists. This natural unbleached muslin cotton has a smooth hand, beautifully frayed or custom sewn with a professionally finished turned serged edge.
( please see pictures for edge example).
_________________________________________

EDGES.

FRAY: The raw edge bind provides more flex and ease in the binding, as the fabrics edge is not reinforced so will gently give. The natural look is soft, simple and wholesome. Being a raw edge one can easily shorten the length to fit personal body.
We recommend a sewn bind to aid Diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation).
.
SEWN: The sewn edge gives more support and is a bit easier to adjust on the body. The soft sewn edge lays smoothly along body and will not bite into skin. Being sewn it will not fray and can easily be thrown in washing machine.
****We tailor the sewn so the bind is correct length for you. Consult our sizing chart in the pictures and please leave us a message with your hip measurement .
______________________________________

MENSTRUAL RELIEF
Wrapping will ease your body during your menstrual cycle by reducing duration (up to 2 days!) and soothing the aches and cramps.
I am a certified Postpartum Doula and Sacred Pregnancy Bengkung Binder but more importantly I am a woman who binds every month and has for over two years now.
Please feel free to consult me on this practice.
__________________________________________

WASHING

Machine wash separately in cool or cold water on a gentle cycle. Dry low temp cycle or line dry.
When washing and drying a fray bind a few loose threads will come off. These are easy to pull or cut off.
We prefer to line dry and have found draping the bind in large loops over the shower rod or clothes line works best.

Size question? Please reach out. We pride ourselves on our customer service.

Ships very quickly priority mail.
