Brand

Kokadi are a German brand whose wraps are made in Turkey under strict fair trade conditions. They are relatively new, having been established in 2010 and are known for their stylish but soft wraps. Their wraps are thin, incredibly grippy and stable, but at the same time soft and very easy to wrap with. A good all rounder, with style!

Blend

These wraps are made from 100% cotton. Nearly every woven wrap contains cotton, and it's no surprise - it's the most widely used natural fibre cloth in the world. Cotton wraps are the everyman of the woven wrap world. Cotton is a great workhorse fibre and a great first wrap. If you only have one woven wrap, make it a 100% cotton one. Cotton is soft, easy to care for and extremely unlikely to irritate the skin. What's not to like?

Cotton has been cultivated for several thousand years all over the world and the USA is (surprisingly) the biggest exporter of cotton now. Cotton is sadly susceptible to a large number of diseases and pests. The cotton industry relies heavily upon pesticides and herbicides, as well as fertilisers. Nearly all cotton used in woven wraps is organic cotton and so these are not used.

You can carry any size or age of child in a cotton wrap comfortably. Cotton is particularly breathable and cool. Thinner cotton wraps are not usually the most supportive of wraps but thicker ones can be very supportive. Thin cotton wraps are usually soft and result in a small knot - perfect for looking pretty and making passes under small babies' legs. You might have to be more particular when you wrap with a thin cotton wrap to make sure it is comfy and supportive.

Cotton is not as cool as linen, or as warm as hemp. It is not as insulating as wool, or as strong as silk. However, the best feature of cotton is that it usually soft straight out of the box and very easy to break in. Oh, and the price! Although you can pay crazy prices for some of the most desirable cotton wraps, you can also get a good basic size 6 100% cotton woven wrap from a well-regarded brand for around£50 new.

If I had to have just one woven wrap, it'd be a 100% cotton one, no question.
