Soul Onbuhimo: Backpack style carrier with no waist! Great for hot weather and wearing while pregnant.
The Soul Onbuhimo is a Japanese-inspired buckle carrier that is waistless and is used to carry your child on your high back. It is a compact and lightweight backpack-style carrier, with a natural, minimalist feel. We love the Soul Onbuhimo for its gorgeous fabrics lines, generous hood and value pricing.
Soul Onbuhimo can be used with babies able enough to sit up independently and hold their heads up strongly. They are used in back carrie
use with children from 15-40 lbs (7-18 kg) who have sufficient torso control to support their heads and sit up independently.
generously sized, contoured body panel and extendable webbing mean this carrier will fit a wide variety of body types of both adults and babies
Perfect fit adjustors (PFAs) and sliding back/chest straps give a custom fit
folds up small and is a perfect carrier to pop into your bag for a day out, offering you the flexibility of quick ups as well as comfortably padded support for longer carriers.
ethically made by Soul in Bangalore, India.
These lightweight carriers are made out of natural fibers, making them great for use in all climates, including hot weather. They are designed for back carries.
We love the Soul Onbuhimo because:
they have a minimalist, natural feel
the generous hood supports your child’s head when asleep but can also be cinched up and look great
no buckles around your waist to dig into your sides or give you muffin top
no waist makes these great for babywearing while pregnant
the high back carry lets your little one peek over your shoulder
great for hot weather wearing because the fabric covers less of your body and less of your baby’s body
they are a great value

Soul Onbuhimo Fabrics
Soul Jacquards are made from Soul jacquard wraps. Cuddly soft and gently textured, Soul Jacquards are supportive for big toddlers but also provide a cushy ride. Soul Jacquards and soft right out of the box and need almost no breaking in.
Soul Linens are known for their wicking and antibacterial qualities. They are ideal for hot and humid climates. The fabrics can be a bit stiff at first but will soften with use. We also recommend a wash and steam iron before use.
Soul 100% Cotton fabrics are the most affordable fabric. They provide support and grip while being breathable and light.
* Soul fabrics may show colour variations, loose threads, tiny slubs, snags or unevenness that are characteristic of natural fiber textiles. These variations should in no way be considered flaws or defects as they do not affect the functionality of the carrier. It is the nature of the fabric and these imperfections highlight its natural beauty and uniqueness.

Care: We recommend spot cleaning your Soul Slings Onbuhimo (and any baby carrier) when practical. When you do wash your carrier, do so on the cold/gentle cycle and hang dry. We recommend putting your Onbuhimo in a lingerie bag or pillowcase to avoid the straps getting twisted or tangled.
