Client Testimonial: Sarah From Cari Slings. Fabric Design Case Study

I am feeling honored to hear from my amazing client Sarah – the founder of Cari Slings woven babywearing wraps company based in North Carolina, USA. She was so kind to write down her feedback on our experience of working together for 1.5 years. Sarah is a mom of three beautiful children, a babywearing enthusiast, and a passionate geek, which translates into her esthetic and choice of topics for her company’s products – USA woven babywearing slings.

Sarah writes:

“When Cari Slings was still in its infancy, I was primarily using mill stock designs. I was very happy with our original designs, but I felt the need to start searching for designers that connected a bit more with my aesthetic.

I stumbled upon a beautiful underwater design by Oksana late one night and loved her work immediately. I found the designer’s name and site and perused her website. I loved everything that I saw, and contacted Oksana enquiring if she would be interested in collaborating with me. She responded and let me know that she had recently given birth and was taking a little bit of time to spend with her family, and asked if I could get back in touch with her in a month or two. I did not hesitate to follow up, and upon getting back in touch, we worked out the details and she took my simple ideas and turned them into a beautiful Under The Sea design.

Since that first project, Oksana and I have collaborated further and she has produced some very fun and beautiful designs for Cari Slings. She has created our Owl Post (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/Owl-Post), Neverending (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/Neverending), The ‘Verse (http://www.carislings.com/chapters/the-verse), #solidarity (a Facebook group exclusive design), our Avatar inspired design (another Facebook group exclusive) and a few more designs that are still “under wraps”.

Oksana is a truly gifted artist. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. When we collaborate on an idea, we brainstorm different concepts, I let Oksana know what I would like, and within a few days, she provides me with a first draft design that always exceeds my expectations. Her artistry translates onto our woven fabric beautifully, and my customers and myself are always so thrilled.

If one is looking for an artist who puts her heart into her work, and if one is looking for a designer who will not just meet, but exceed your expectations, please do not hesitant to get in touch with Oksana. I cannot sing her praises enough. Her work speaks for itself.

Thank you kindly Oksana. :)”

Thank you so much for such a great feedback. I loved our time working together too! It’s been filled with wonderful, creative assignments and I really enjoyed the process of working together to bring your and your customer’s ideas to life on special, custom and uniques fabric designs.

Here is the story :) Our creative journey with Sarah started with this Under The Sea design in 2014 which is now available in an array of colors and fabric choices:

 

Since then Sarah and I collaborated on 9 more designs like the Owl Post fabric design inspired by the world of Harry Potter:

One of my favorite customers Cari Slings babywearing wraps company just annouced a limited edition of awesome new handmade wallets with their exclusive sling fabric. And Yay!

Each wallet is a trifold and measures approximately 5×8″ folded. And I love the little penny tag. In Ukraine we have a superstition of never giving a wallet as a gift without any money in it too. Funny that it’s common in other countries as well :)

My Seashell Fabric Design For Cari Slings – Under The Sea Line

So excited to announce my first project for a wonderful babywearing company Cari Slings – seashell fabric design for a line of amazing babywearing slings. The owner of Cari Slings, Sarah contacted me with the request to create a unique textile artwork with a Caribbean vibe, hence the name of the company, and a laid back and fun style to remind of a relaxing, exotic vacation on the beach :) I loved the idea, especially now that I live by the ocean and the beach has become a big part or my life.

Under The Sea line of wraps has been born! Here is my little Olivia and I testing the sling for ourselves. I really like how luxurious and soft the fabric is! And that subtle shine to it is amazing!

After our little photo session Olivia inspected the wrap for herself :) Now it’s one of her favorite toys. We often use it as a roof for her little house made with two chairs and the sling over them.

This design is full of fun seashells, shells, scallops, and starfish. I was inspired by the finds from our beach walks here in Santa Barbara.

The sling is available for sale in a few different colors and fabrics on Cari Slings website.
