Virtue Quadrangle Terracotta Meh Dai
I have a special passion towards Meh Dai carrier (aka Mei Tai or 孭帶 in Cantonese). A native Cantonese person born in Hong Kong, I grew up in this style of carrier myself.
I believes it's possible to incorporate the traditional Cantonese design with modern comfort, so I opt for a wrap sling strap during the design process. We are aware that some parents like the look of woven wrap but don't like the learning curve (e.g. my own husband!) so we want to create a Meh Dai that look like woven wrap and I think we have achieved that! Our Meh Dai is often mistaken for a woven wrap!
True to the Cantonese tradition, where Meh Dai usually have meaningful blessing embroidered into the sling, we work with our pattern designer to come up with positive symbols from traditional Estonian folk art.
Our Terracotta Meh Dai is locally woven with 50% linen and 50% cotton Oeko-Tex Standard 100 yarn and handcrafted with love by local tailors. They are elegant and very easy to use. The fabric is very soft, yet strong and supportive. The design is adjustable. This is an ultimate Meh Dais that are soft enough for newborn yet strong enough to be 'toddler-worthy'. Our Meh Dais are made with all natural materials. We intentionally have not included include any synthetic material in the making of the sling - no plastic adjustment bits, no synthetic padding!
