Luna Meh-Dai Tara Joy
Why we love it:
We love these beautifully soft, woven wrap baby carriers from Luna. They can be used from around 1 month until around 2 years. It's made from their 100% cotton wraps (without toxic dyes), including the herringbone Tara weave, that is soft, grippy, cushy and much loved in their wraps and ring slings..
This carrier is based on an East Asian traditional baby carrier which is still in use today. Meh dai (Cantonese) or bei dai (Mandarin) are rectangles of fabric with straps at the top and bottom. Meh dai means “back carrying strap" where “meh/bei” means “carry on your back,” and “dai” means strap. You might also see this type of carrier referred to as a 'mei tai', however that term is now considered out of date because it is an inaccurate translation.
You might also see this brand of carrier referred to as a 'Wrap-Tai', however that term is now considered by many to be inappropiate because the abbreviation does not preserve the cultural origins of the carrier
