Why We Love This

Handwoven and embroidered in silk and cotton, this baby carrier from a Chinese minority group has incredible detail and textural contrast. Such items were painstakingly crafted by women to display the wealth and skill of their family and imbue the wearer with good luck and protection, in this example, through the symbolism of the butterfly.

About IBU Movement

On the islands of Indonesia, “ibu” is a woman of respect. It is also a collection of garments and home goods, handmade by female artisans around the world. As they spin, dye, and weave their stories into cloth, ibu artisans craft more than beauty; they craft their own independence. They educate their children, lead communities, and change futures. Fill your home with the art of the hand. Join a worldwide web of women on the move, rising into self-created lives. Be an ibu.
