Tekhni Wovens is a local business in Grayslake, IL, just north of Chicago. Tekhni woven wraps come in a variety of designs, sizes, textures and blends; tussah silk, tencel, 100% cotton, and Repreve. Tekhni has done wonderful and innovative things by incorporating Repreve blend wraps into the babywearing world. Repreve is made from recycled plastic bottles, and makes uniquely textured, breathable wraps that also help to wick away moisture. Tekhni also makes a variety of wrap conversion items dedicated to keeping caregivers hands free and accessorized daily, even if you’re not wearing a baby. No wrap scraps go to waste as they can be used for almost anything you can think of; hipsacks, traveler and cross-body bags, headbands, bows, teethers, drool pads and much more!
This business has come a very long way in such a short amount of time. Owner, Alisa DeMarco, works countless hours building a successful business and being a working mom for her growing family of 6! Alisa has helped to make babywearing accessible to our community by her passion and generosity. Be sure to join us at the Bash on Saturday, October 8 for great prizes donated by Tekhni, and check out their vendor table! We look forward to seeing what new designs and items she will release in the future!
