Custom Meh Dai (mei Tai) Baby Carriers

The custom option is a fantastic way to get immediate access to the carrier you've been craving, complete with all the personal touches... your custom ObiMama, an heirloom piece that is a joy to use. You'll get the perfect size, the perfect embellishment and personalization, and this one will be absolutely one of a kind. You provide your favorite fabrics and the vision, and we'll bring the years of experience, know-how, and refinement.

ObiMama ships worldwide, and is fully compliant with CPSIA and ASTM F2236. We proudly offer United States residents the broadest selection of fabric choices for custom and ready-to-ship carriers. Non-US residents will appreciate ObiMama's status as a master carrier maker: extensive experience with a variety of wraps and fabrics means less risk and guess work for you.

A limited amount of customs will be available on a regular periodic basis. Simply buy the slot when it becomes available, send in your new fabric with completed order form by its due date, then sit back and enjoy that sweet anticipation.

shoulder Strap Styles

Kombi straps have comfortable padding folded into the upper rail of your shoulder strap. A little less bulk, a little less shoulder coverage, with a unique inverted pleat and that distinctive curved stitching. Kombis tend to be preferred for those with petite figures, but that's not written in stone.


Sometimes less is more. Our unpadded straps are wrap only, with no extra padding or quilting. Folded with our signature half-blind pleats, you'll enjoy the simplicity and low-volume fit.

Zen straps are the ultimate for shoulder coverage. Expect a great cap every time, with no fuss.  Compared to kombi straps, the padding here will feel less floppy and a little squishier. The pleats are evenly spaced and symmetrical for a more natural fit on your shoulder.


ObiMama pioneered the ultra wide mei tai straps. All our welter weight meh dai (mei tai) straps are distinguished by superwide lightweight 100% linen and a padded shoulder. You'll achieve a wide, hammock style seat for your babe while enjoying unparalleled support for your back and shoulders.

Cinchy: Big Kid or BABY

Adjustable cords set at the diagonal allow you to make small adjustments to get a more accurate fit. This can be adjusted far smaller than you would probably ever use it, exactly how small depends on the weave and fiber of the fabric. This feature is less about creating an infant to preschooler carrier, and more about added versatility for your growing child/siblings.
