Designed out of one mother‘s need, Karin Frost set out to create the ultimate baby carrier. Her vision was to construct a baby carrying device that would support her child‘s spinal development while distributing the baby‘s weight to parent‘s hips and shoulders, alleviating stress to the back and neck. She fine-tuned her product with help and feedback from other parents sharing similar needs for their infants and toddlers. In 2003, her vision became a reality.
Karin began sourcing fabrics made by factories with responsible business practices that shared her values. Her first Original Carrier design was made out of 100 % cotton. This machine washable model included high foam density waist and shoulder straps with an adjustable sleeping hood. The carrier was only offered through the website, but it was there that her loyal following began. Today, this same product is sold in speciality retailers and department stores worldwide.
With the success of the Original Carrier, a growing need of certified organic baby products started to evolve. After visiting several factories to ensure fair business practices and to investigate all aspects of certified organics, the new factory was established and the ERGOBABY Organic Carrier was born. This ultra plush carrier offered the same fit as the Original with a premium feel and extra features on the carrier.
Today, our product offering has expanded to incorporate the lifestyle of our active parents. From tech-savvy sports enthusiasts to the urban professional, our carriers offer features to please and compliment modern day parenting.
