We are fortunate to have many wonderful businesses join us in our mission to provide carriers to families who have children with special needs. Lalu Wovens was founded in 2015 by Teresa Aaron, a mother and designer who, after moving to Atlanta and having her first child, fell in love with babywearing. Her talented sewing and finishing team is also made up of local moms who handle the details of each wrap with the utmost care. Lalu wraps are manufactured exclusively in the United States. These beautiful wovens marry chic, urban designs with the highest quality fibers that provide the special bond you only get through babywearing.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type="normal" position="center"][vc_column_text]
Lalu Wovens is committed to giving back to the community. For every wrap purchased, they donate a portion of their proceeds to Lift Me Up! Now you can shop beautiful wovens AND support our mission at the same time![/vc_column_text][vc_separator type="normal" position="center"][vc_column_text]
Read why Teresa at Lalu Wovens feels so connected to Lift Me Up's mission:
"My older brother, Kevin, has cerebral palsy — he’s non-verbal and, while he’s not wheelchair bound, he has a very difficult time getting around. He’s 35 years old now, so he wasn’t worn when he was young. But, now that my mama has seen how beneficial it is with my son, I know she wishes she had babywearing in her repertoire back when she was raising us. She did what she could, though. I only recently learned that while my brother was in the NICU (he spent his first 2 months there), she hand expressed breastmilk for him, because “when your child is sick, you do anything that you can.”
She even mentioned she thought another woman was acting as a wet nurse for him, but that wasn’t confirmed. Maybe that shouldn’t come as a surprise, but when I think of my mother in her mid-twenties, with her first child who was born prematurely, in 1978… Well, let’s just say I was very proud of her when I heard that story.
I adore my big brother :) He’s now met my little one twice (Julian is turning one tomorrow!!?!)… they both think the other is pretty funny, but Kevin has let us know that he already loves the baby. Makes my heart melt!!"
