Rowan Bay has been born from a passion for babywearing, a deep love of nature and all things wild, which you will see reflected throughout Rowan Bay's designs and ethos.
Owner Larissa set up Rowan Bay in 2016 after carrying her son in wovens out of necessity. Living in the city, getting around with a pushchair on the underground was difficult to navigate so wheels were soon replaced with slings, which soon moved into a collection of woven wraps.
Like many other parents, carrying helped Larissa and her son bond and it became an incredibly important and useful tool in their everyday life. Wovens made everything much easier and soon Larissa’s interest grew, spending many hours learning about the different fibres and wrapping qualities that they have.
Larissa combined this newly found interest with her love for design and her background in ecology and conservation to create an ethical and sustainable woven wrap brand.
