We are a family run business started by parents of two young children who are on a mission to reach parents and caregivers everywhere with the freedom that is babywearing. Chinmayie, our founder, started the business from home in 2014 when she couldn’t find quality baby carriers for herself in India. She loved babywearing to keep her baby physically close to her, while her hands were free to do her daily chores, or take care of her older child.
She wanted every parent to experience the difference babywearing can make in their life, so she invested a lot of time in educating parents about the benefits of babywearing; and once they saw the light, there was no stopping her! Soon, her partner Ravindra joined her in the business, and together they have built the largest baby carrier brand in India.
Soul in India
Soul has played an important part in popularising modern babywearing in India, with its dedicated approach to educating Indian parents about the benefits of babywearing. Our educational videos, tutorials, & other content have helped thousands of new parents take their first steps into babywearing. We have a strong community of parents on our Facebook support group who are happy to help answer any queries you may have about our products or baby wearing in general.
Soul for everyone
As we grew, so did our range of products, we now make a wide range of baby carriers, from high quality ring slings, woven wraps, & soft structured carriers. We also have a colourful range of baby carrier accessories, and other products for babies & the entire family.
We want to spread the joy & freedom of babywearing to every family in India, which is why we have a range of baby carriers which will appeal to everyone, and at very reasonable prices.
Our Soul products are now available worldwide to bring families closer, and to make caring for your baby a lot easier!
All our baby carriers are ergonomically designed by experienced babywearers & trained babywearing educators who are parents who have worn their own babies. All our carriers are tested for the strictest international standards. We use 100% premium linen & cotton for all our carriers, which make them light & breathable, so you can be sure your baby is safe and comfortable in them!
We know your babies love to nibble on everything around them, which is why we use only baby safe dyes for all our products. Every little hook & strap that goes into making our carriers is of the highest quality available, because we know your baby deserves only the best.
We have a great relationship with our weavers, with whom we work closely to produce the high quality, durable, & strong fabric with which we make all our products. The material used for all our products is fair trade, ethically sourced, & is made of 100% natural fibres.
When you have a product from Soul in your hands, know that it was lovingly handmade in our workshop in Bangalore, India, by working mothers from the local community.
Soul for Society
We are proud of our 96% women workforce, whom we empower by offering them flexible work hours, encouraging them to take up professional training, and ultimately become stronger team players within our organisation. We employ women from the local community who have blossomed into confident team leaders & designers through our training programme.
We believe in a fair wage for all our team members, which is why we pay 15% more than the industry standard for our team members in our factory. The work environment that we have created for our team members in our factory is unlike any in the Indian garment industry. They work in a bright & airy environment, with ample natural light, & have access to clean toilets. We follow all the standards set by Indian labour laws, & ensure that any overtime work, if at all, is paid for.
We want them to truly be a part of our growing team, so we take them for team retreats once a year, which instills a sense of belonging in them.
We are proud of our work in supporting our women in what is most important for them- the education of their children. We grant interest free loans to all our women who need the financial support to put their children through school.
We feel strongly about every child having access to quality education, which is why we ensure that there has been no child labour involved at any stage of the manufacturing process of our Soul products.
Soul for Green
We believe that we have to be responsible to our society and our environment, and there is always more for us to do. Our conscious decision to work with a manufacturer who uses solar & wind energy to power their plant, is a step towards reducing our carbon footprint. Our packaging has no print on it, which is another conscious decision to avoid the use of harmful chemicals. We pioneered a change in the elaborate billing process of our logistics provider by optimising their invoice delivery system, which has considerably reduced their carbon footprint.
