Production in renowned Mills in Turkey
Turkey enjoys an amazing worldwide reputation in the textile industry, therefore our slings are manufactured under careful conditions there. The social and environmental working conditions are just as important to us, as are the careful selection of raw materials and their processing. Our seeds for the cotton are 100% organic. The plants are fertilized organically and without the use of herbicides or pesticides. Pests are treated with natural solutions and repellents. When the cotton is ready, it is carefully harvested by hand. The cotton is processed to high-quality yarn – our raw material for baby slings.
Next it becomes colorful - the yarn is dyed in the desired color, and we deliberately refrain from heavy metals and toxic substances such as formaldehyde. We comply with the guidelines of the "global organic textile standards" GOTS. This means that our slings are particularly kind to the skin, saliva and sweat resistant. Through a complex weave - the so-called Jaquardtechnik – beautiful patterns are woven into the slings. This is accomplished using the specially designed Jaquardweavechair. Here imagination has almost no limit. The wrap is diagonal elastic and thus adapts perfectly to the back of the baby. The fabric is now finished and subsequently heated mechanically. This has two advantages: due to the heating, the wrap is beautifully soft and cuddly – and also less likely to shrink during washing. Now, the fabric is woven and cut to the appropriate length. Each Kokadi sling has double-fringed selvage (self-finished edge) in order to reach a sufficient stability when worn. The center is marked on each wrap with a top and bottom kokadi label. The width is 70 cm (≈ 27.5 in). This provides a secure grip even for older children. The long sides end in diagonal slants. This helps in knot tying. Your Kokadi wrap can support a weight of approximately 100 kg (≈ 220 lbs).
Each sling undergoes a careful quality control before delivery.
The Bonded (connected) is a brand new weave on the Sling market. This was specially developed by the Kokadi. The benefits: Sling fabrics that overlap. The special advantage is that the woven layers are only connected to one another at the points where the Patterns were woven. The colors of the pattern and the primary colors of wrap are so very clear and beautiful. The wrap layers are much thinner. The wrap is incredibly firm, but soft and cuddly - perfect for carrying larger children. The fabric is diagonal flexible and well suited for Wrapping beginners. Through the two fabric layers any unevenness in binding is balanced.
Avant garde weave
The Kokadi avant garde line represents a new type of sling design:
Striking and exceptionally unique these Wraps embellish Mamas and Papas.
The Avant garde slings are pure fashion! - and, because of the fine woven structure, they offer security and coziness for your child. The towels are thin woven, incredibly grippy and stable, but at the same time soft and very easy to wrap with. Making bigger kids and newborns equally comfortable and protected.
The jacquard weave is a special weave procedure in which two different colors are used to weave patterns into the fabric. Because of this process you can see the pattern of the weave on both sides of the wrap in opposite colors. These wraps are soft and cuddly.
A well proven weave to highlight the pattern.
Cotton is a plant and belongs to the genus of the mallow family. From the hair of the cotton fiber the seed is obtained. It is a natural fiber. This cotton fiber is spun into threads and yarns. Our cotton is organic and hand-picked.
Cannabis belongs to the genus of the hemp family. It is a natural fiber. The hemp fibers are made from industrial hemp. The fibers are extremely resistant to tearing. The fibers are spun into yarns. Hemp is typically more durable than cotton.
Linen – thread made from fibers of the flax plant. Through a complex process, the fibers are first dried, crushed, swung, heckled and cleaned. The resulting long fibers are spun into high-quality threads. Linen has a very smooth, shiny surface, since there is almost no air trapped between the fibers, peeling is minor. It is less susceptible to collect dirt and bacteria, and due to its air balancing feature, has a cooling effect in the Summer.
Cashmere is a very soft and fine natural fiber. This is derived from the undercoat of the cashmere goat. It is one of the most valuable and most expensive natural fibers. Cashmere is very warm and light. The fibers are spun into fine yarns.
Silk is a very fine natural animal fiber. It is derived from the cocoon of the silkworm. These threads, spun while cocooning, are unspun and then several threads are twisted together. This thread is now processed into a smooth textile surface. Silk is highly tear resistant and acts as insulation against the cold as well as the heat.
