Dekka wraps are all toddler-worthy (+6kg) but an experienced wrapper can use them for new-borns, too. Depending on the design and composition the wraps measure between 68 and 72 cm in width and weigh 330gsm. The wraps are woven in Jacquard weave in the “Dekka triweave” construction, which gives the wraps their typical fluffiness and supportiveness.
Processing: All Dekka wraps are made in the Czech Republic. They are woven and sewn in a state of the art Czech weaving mill, which complies to the strictest European regulations and is a holder of the OekoTex certificate in the strictest product class for babies and children up to 3 years. All yarns used in production are also certified.
However beautiful, a wrap is a tool we use every day and as such it has to be able to withstand the strain and therefore it needs to be of high quality. On the other hand I don’t want wraps to be inaccessible, luxury items. That’s why I’m looking for ways to lower unnecessary costs and make Dekka wraps affordable – there is no grandiose packaging, boxes, sacks and accessories that would be left lying at the bottom of the closet unused.
Wraps are used at home and outdoors and primarily with kids so it must be easy care. Dekka wraps composition and weave are selected with an easy maintenance in mind:
100% Cotton wraps and wraps with polyester fiber should be washed at 30°C at low spin speed using a liquid washing detergent without fabric brightening agents or fabric softeners. Dry on a drying rack harmonica-style and iron at the highest setting or lower. Do not bleach or dry clean. Do not tumble dry. Those are my recommendations for the wrap to stay good as new for a long time. From time to time you can put them to the dryer but keep in mind that they get narrower and shorter but after using them they get back to their original size again.
For composite wraps, especially woollen ones, always see instructions on the label or on the product website.
Dekka wraps are exclusive items not by price but by the fact that they were designed by a fashion designer and are only made in very limited editions (counted in ones, not tens). They make the person wearing them truly unique.
Thank you for reading my story.
