Choisir Lin ou le Coton ?

Should I choose a linen or cotton baby carrier?


What are the advantages of a 100% cotton Gustine baby carrier and those of a linen Gustine baby carrier? Each has its advantages. We invite you to discover the advantages of each.

Since the release of the “Linen” collection, several mothers have questioned its advantages compared to our 100% cotton collection. For some, that’s the big question!

Of course, I would tell you that it is above all a question of taste. However, we want to help you by offering you as much information as possible about these two fibers.

Top quality fabrics

At Gustine, we only offer premium quality preformed products, using natural fibers OEKO-TEX approved. This is an integral part of our corporate values. We have therefore chosen to offer you two collections : a patterned woven collection in cotton with the jacquard weaving technique and a collection woven in plain linen canvas.

Cotton: the soft and enveloping fabric 

Cotton molds better to the baby's body and is a much softer fiber. You will also find a texture to the touch given the interweaving of the fibers. A weave that we find a little more “marshmallow” and enveloping than our linen woven.

The cotton fiber is surrounded by a thin layer of wax: the cuticle. This is what makes the fiber rough and hydrophobic. Low luster, Cotton has breathable capabilities and absorbs moisture well.  

Linen: the ideal fabric for your summer outings

Linen is a fiber that breathes much more; it is thermoregulatory and offers a certain freshness. Among other features, it dries very quickly. As linen is a fiber that tends to have more imperfections than cotton, it is normal to find small “nubs” in the weave. Don't worry, it's a really good fiber. robust !

Linen is an absorbent fiber, so it tempers the body well and creates little static. Linen is also very smooth, which gives it a bit of a shine. It hardly lints and is very little messy.

Cotton and linen baby carriers: same comfort

Well, no surprise! Unlike wraps, the comfort of a preformed will not have much variation from fiber to fiber. The pattern, adjustments and model remain the same, regardless of the Gustine baby carrier!

Whether you choose linen or cotton, the comfort and most features will be the same:

  • The shoulder straps are super padded (shoulder heaven)
  • The small padding at the thigh level (for absolute comfort for our babies)
  • The semi-rigid belt (for comfort on all occasions)

In short, you have no choice: you must have two Gustine baby carriers... 😂 one in linen for mild summer days, and one in cotton for cool winter days. 😉

We wish you portages full of happiness and kisses! 🥰
