4. Heritage Baby Designs (IG: @hertigagebabydesigns)
Heritage Baby is the brainchild of me - Kayleigh, mother to William who resides in Simcoe County in Ontario, Canada. Before my son was born I knew that I wanted to try to be one of those moms with her baby strapped to her body. As my obsession for babywearing grew, so did my desire to find a product and brand that fit my wants; eco-conscious, company that gives back, parent-owned and operated, handmade, and cute (think patterns). I made my first sling to fit these wants and more, and so Heritage was born.

With a background in Fine Art and Interior Architecture, Diana Adams found a way to combine her natural artistic talents with her respect for what the interior design industry is doing for creating more sustainable environments and life styles. The interior design and architectural industry has been leading the charge in sustainable design and reducing our carbon foot print, but simultaneously generating waste of their own in the process. I want do my part in utilizing and upcycling what would have been discarded and giving it a new life. This could be anything from discontinued or excess samples that vendors created for marketing, to scraps of materials left over from upholstery and building materials.
