Let’s take a moment to discuss Tekhni. Alisa DeMarco is the super sweet and the owner of Tekhni wovens. I came across Tekhni by accident, joined their Facebook group, and immediately fell in love with the designs! The company has a wonderful budget wrap line with wraps of any size for $99. Arche and Aplos are the names, and making me happy is their game!
Tekhni Aplos Tangerine… what can I say? This 100% cotton wrap is tough, stiff, and burly right out of the bag. It screams toddler-worthy! Would you believe me if I told you it breaks in TO DIE FOR and is the best wrap that I’ve ever had visit? This is one of those wraps that when you wrap baby up, baby won’t budge. Rock. Solid. The first time I wrapped with it, I made the mistake of wrapping Maxine high so that when she sank into place, she would be where I like her. Nope. She stayed on the back of my neck. Maxine didn’t sink AT ALL. Each time I wrapped with Aplos, it just got softer and softer.
Over the two week time period that I borrowed Aplos, I honeymooned like crazy. It was the wrap I reached for first. I definitely will be in the market for my own soon.
Tekhni Arche…beautiful, right? This is a cotton/repreve blend which just makes it that much better. You can’t go wrong with repreve! Recycled materials, y’all! This wrap was thin. Thin is great for Virginia summers. With a multi layer carry, I didn’t feel like I was dying. That says a lot! The passes glide so smoothly with this wrap. Some thread shifting is common but that is easily fixed and is expected with a synthetic blend.
This is a great wrap for little babies and beginner wrappers. It’s thin so it can get a little diggy in the shoulders if not sandwiched. I will probably use this for a few more pounds at least before sending it to a new home. It’s still comfy for me.
Overall, Tekhni’s budget line is AH-MAZING. It’s definitely more than worth the money, and I can’t wait to see what Tekhni comes up with next!
