The term mei-tai refers to a type of Asian-based carrier. Pronounced may tie, its meaning in Chinese (Cantonese) is Mei : carried on the shoulders and Tai : carrying strap. Its simplicity is what makes it so popular. There are many variations in existence, and the basic common element is a waist-belt and shoulder straps attached to a central panel where baby is seated. The carrier adapts to a wide range of body types.
The Chimparoo Mei Tai has a number of unique characteristics: soft woven cotton twill, system of lateral adjustments for a newborn, seat adjustments to accommodate a baby younger than 2-3 months of age, a sleep hood, and padding in the waist, shoulder straps and under the thighs. All these elements make an ideal carrier for the newborn.
The carrier is certified for use with a child weighing 7-35 lbs, and thus can be used for as long as you feel comfortable.
Your child can be worn in 4 positions: on the front facing in, on the front facing out, on the hip and on the back.
The Chimparoo Mei Tai is often considered a hybrid, the compromise between a woven wrap and a soft structured carrier such as the TREK or MULTI 2.0. Made for both men and women, with a look that is both urban and natural. It owes its cozy feel, comfort and support to the same supple, lightweight cotton twill found in our woven wraps.
Lightweight and simple to use, it is compact and easy to master. You will find it indispensable, both inside and outside the home.
The long shoulder straps will accommodate most body types and allow the carrier to be worn outside your coat.
Jacquard weaving is the new trend in wearing our toddlers. And we understand the craze of the parents: unlike cross twill weaving, jacquard allows to obtain a rich variety of patterns. Remember that the first scarves were only plain or striped, while today there is no more limit! In addition to the motifs, the interweaving of the threads of the weaving in jacquard brings a unique relief which gives a lot of nobility to the fabrics of the carrier.
