How Does It Work

1. Select Your Chosen Carrier

If you have a wrap that you love but want the convenience of carrier then a wrap conversion is for you, each conversion is unique and customised to your specifications!

2. Personalise Your Carrier

Once you have decided on the carrier and any extras you desire to make your carrier unique to you, simply submit your enquiry and I will contact you to arrange the next steps.

3. Place Your Order

Once you’re happy just let me know and I will send an invoice for the total. Don’t worry you don’t pay the full amount up front! I only ask for a £20 deposit to get started.

We also offer a service to chop and rehem a wrap into a shorter sling.

Dependent on the size of your wrap (wrap size guide) we could also use any remaining pieces as a panel on a carrier, a ring sling, or if you have your own project in mind we can send the rest back to you.
