Weaverbirds is a social enterprise producing handwoven baby wraps in a fair-trade manner, from locally sourced sustainable cotton certified by the Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) initiative. Weaverbirds focuses on sustainability for people and planet in every aspect of the production.
Weaverbirds baby wraps are a 100% Ugandan product: The cotton is grown and harvested in rural Uganda and spun and dyed at Fine Spinners Ltd. Kampala. The cotton yarn is then woven at a vocational training center in Kampala providing sustainable and fair wages to experienced weavers as well as providing skills training and job opportunities to novel weavers.
Our vision is to deepen the bond between parent and child while being stewards of our planet. Weaverbirds was founded with the wish and intention to support the Ugandan community through manufacturing in a sustainable manner. We aim to operate under the highest ethical and social standards. We are proud of the work we do, the products we make and our business conduct.
We are extremely proud to have Lotte Hald as our ambassador. Lotte is the mother of two girls, the owner of the company Slyngejordemoder (www.slyngejordemoder.dk), a passionate midwife, and baby wearing consultant. Weaverbirds and Lotte met through a mutual midwife friend who visited Uganda, and we never looked back. We feel very lucky to have developed a strong and warm partnership with such an amazing and versatile ambassador.
