But the ones I saw got snapped into a messenger bag shape, which was really cool. You can carry the straps like a purse. But it was very very lightweight. No more than a very light quilt. Not sure how those differ from the Chuneis you've raved about at IHousa.

Anyway, that's my update.
More sizes and, at least, Amy Butler fabric please!
Oh wow really! I am going to buy 1 from that women in S. Korea, but the plainer striped variety. Thats a shame they couldnt fit you, did they only have the kitty designs? LOL...yeah, Koreans are big w/ the kitschy fabrics...
I bettcha you could make a chunei w/ said Amy Butler fabric...I know several mamas who have made them, they dont seem *that* hard to make, esp if your good w/ sewing and making DIY stuff.

wow, deb...blast from the past!

Um... becos they are twits!
Whats funny is, I went back w/ Ibi in my Psling in a hip carry and we went into a different part of the museum this time-the anthropology floor- and walked through the various exhibits and I did scoot him to my back for much of the walking around on that floor...and NOONE said anything...AND there were guards around.

Some speculations on my part...
I guess, perhaps the part we were in the first time drew more kids and so the guards like to be dorks...verses the anthro floor gets less kids. Or perhaps they *assume* a mother w/ a baby on her back wont be able to see whats behind her and might bump into stuff OR the baby will grab at stuff. Um...yeah. I know...like please, when you back carry you get a much better sense of whats going on around you...Or maybe they fear your child will drop out and get hurt.
I honestly...dont know...tis only speculations...but now I know, in the future, I wil use a RS and just do the scoot to the back thing.

Donno if anyone knows this...but there is another mom, based in Korea who is selling other brands of chunei, along w/ other Korean babycarriers like the modern podaegi, traditional podaegi, ring sling and baby poncho.
