These slings are crafted for a special purpose — from fabric to finish, they help support Indigenous families and midwives in Canada. With design by Ojibway artist Pey-sim-away-apey-binasi / Mark Anthony Jacobson for Northcott Fabrics, a portion of revenue will be donated by Northcott to a charity that supports First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities. At our end, we will be contributing not only our usual portion to MSF, but 10$ from each of these slings will be donated in support of Indigenous students pursuing studies in healthcare and for improving access to local healthcare for children in Indigenous communities in Canada through the First Nation’s Caring Society.

Loons are magical, and the imagery of parenting loons on these fabrics is perfect for the welcoming of new humans to the earth. Additionally, salmon are very important to many Indigenous communities, are vital indicators of ecosystem health, as well as ultimate sacrifice parents, dying shortly after spawn.
We began making these slings at the request of a local midwives group, and for over a decade have been making them for a Canadian medical supplies company and a midwifery supply company.
This weigh sling is extra special, made with care, attention, and affection in our smoke-free home from 100% high quality quilting cotton, vibrant and sturdy with a nice drape.
A perfect way to welcome your little fish into the world!
Slings measure approximately 40″ in length and 29″ width with sturdy metal D rings in a chrome finish for hooking to your scale, sewn in at the ends with double hems. All side hems are nicely rolled & stitched.
Perfect as a midwife gift, or a keepsake.
Sewn in sunshine to save electricity!
