Aura Wrap FAQ's

What is different between the Knit and Mesh version of the Aura Baby Wrap?
The Knit version is the traditional soft and stretchy wrap, produced from sustainably sourced Tencel™ Lyocell fibers and the fabric is naturally soft and silky on baby's skin. The Mesh version is made with Recycled Polyester and the fabric is moisture-wicking and breathable, which pulls sweat away and helps keep you and your baby cool and dry.


What is the Sustainably Sourced Knit version made from and does it have any harmful materials?
The Sustainably Sourced Knit version is made with 100% Tencel™ Lyocell fibres. As is true with all Ergobaby products, the materials used in production are carefully sourced and thoroughly tested to be free of potentially harmful substances.

What is Tencel™ Lyocell and how is it sustainable?
Tencel™ Lyocell fibres are produced from sustainably sourced wood and certified as biodegradable. Tencel™ Lyocell fibres are produced in a closed-loop process that recycles over 99% of the water and solvent. This process leads to a significant reduction in waste and impacts to the environmental footprint, particularly when compared with viscose production.


What is the Sustainably Sourced Mesh version made from and does it have any harmful materials?
The Sustainably Sourced Mesh version is made from 93% Recycled Polyester and 7% Elastane/Spandex. As is true with all Ergobaby products, the materials used in production are carefully sourced and thoroughly tested to be free of potentially harmful substances.


What is Recycled Polyester and how is it sustainable?
The recycled polyester used in the Aura Baby Wrap is created by transforming post-consumer plastic bottles into a new textile material. By incorporating recycled polyester in this way, we strive to decrease our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. This not only utilizes waste but also helps to lower greenhouse gas emissions associated with manufacturing processes.


What is different between the Sustainably Sourced Knit version and the Classic Knit version of the Aura Baby Wrap?
The Sustainably Sourced Knit version and the Classic Knit version differ primarily in their fabric production processes and associated environmental impact. The Classic Knit version is crafted from 100% Viscose using a traditional process that involves chemicals. In contrast, the Sustainably Sourced Knit version is made from 100% Tencel™ Lyocell fibers, which are responsibly sourced and produced in a closed-loop process. This eco-friendly process utilizes non-toxic solvents and recycles over 99% of the solvents used, significantly reducing its environmental footprint. The updated version of the Aura Baby Wrap prioritises sustainability and aligns with our commitment to eco-conscious practices.
