We are big fans of Ergobaby, and model Giselewas recently carrying her daughter Vivian in the Ergobaby Designer Collection carrier. Designed by model and mom of two Christy Turlington Burns, this gorgeous carrier is to support the non-profit organization Every Mother Counts, a charity that was created to end pregnancy-related maternal mortality around the world.
Ergobaby and Christy Turlington Burns worked with The Collaborative Group, an organization that brings sustainable employment to women around the globe, to source designs from the very regions served by the Every Mother Counts partnership.
The authentic African Umba pattern, created by Chantal, a local designer in West Africa, was chosen by Christy to merge the unique sensibilities of African textile design with a stylish, one-of-a-kind twist on products parents can use every day. Chantal provides for her family in Togo through textile design; her batik method involves a specially carved wood stamp, hot wax and a white piece of cotton, resulting in a wonderfully natural pattern with broad appeal.
A purchase of one or all of these beautifully crafted products from the Ergobaby Guest Designer Series helps prevent pregnancy-related complications and even death, through the work of Every Mother Counts. A portion of every purchase made on Ergobaby.com will support Every Mother Counts in this very important work.
