Storchenwiege began in 1996, when a textile engineer of more than 40 years became a grandparent and saw that a pram wasn't suitable for activities such as hiking in Saxon Switzerland.
Other carriers were not as convenient, especially for a very clingy baby, who often demanded to be close to Mummy and Daddy in a loud voice. She wanted to be carried. The midwives gave a tip: the best thing is a baby sling.
Upon realising that none of the current baby carriers suited, he started to develop a material himself to use as a baby sling. The sling had to be very durable and to be able to carry even a bigger child; it had to tie well, be soft and diagonally elastic, and fulfil all the environmental requirements: after all, it was to carry his grandchild. The result was "Storchenwiege®" - produced in an environmentally friendly process, tested and certified free of harmful substances, diagonally elastic and extremely durable, as strong multiple-ply cotton yarn is used on both thread directions, lengthwise and crosswise. Their contented grandchild was a wonderful incentive to me to bring the Storchenwiege® baby sling onto the market, convince young families of the sling's many advantages and motivate them to carry their children.
Nowadays, Storchenwiege® is a hugely successful brand in Germany, Europe and overseas, steadily increasing in popularity in Australia!
