Almitra Tattva India Pink Imperia

  • 100% cotton – 212 gsm
  • $
  • Machine woven
  • Best for: all babies
  • Carries: all carries

I was so excited to check it this wrap! I’ve never heard of Almitra Tattva before. I saw another babywearer using it and I wanted to find out as much as I could about it. I thought the design was simply gorgeous and I loved the colors. I knew I had to host it so I could try it out.

My first thought? I was slightly overwhelmed by the pattern when I saw it in person. The kids were so excited to see all the different animals and kept calling them out. They loved the intricate pattern, which was extremely different from the other wraps that I’ve used. Second thought? So so soft.

Pink Imperia is double woven. There are two sets of warp and weft yarns. That’s what makes it so supportive for such a thin wrap. Tot is on the heavier side (35+ lb) so I was afraid to put him up in a single pass carry. I got the chance to put him up in a ruck, and it was smooth sailing. It’s an extremely supportive wrap, with no digging in the shoulders! It was nice to have on at all times, for varying amount of time.

I wouldn’t say Imperia was marshmallow-y, but it was cushy in its own way. Maybe because of the double weave? It felt nice on the shoulders, without giving my back a hard time. There is limited give, not really stretchy or bouncy.

Pink Imperia is a pretty solid wrap. I didn’t really notice any kind of stretch. It made it supportive for my almost 40 lb. toddler. We had no issues with him up, and we didn’t have to readjust at all. I wouldn’t consider this wrap to be cumbersome, but there’s no stretch so I wouldn’t consider it ace bandage-y either. It was just right in between.

This wrap is 100% cotton – so there are no special care directions to follow. I wouldn’t call Imperia a workhorse wrap, I would want to be careful of pulling a thread due to the intricate design on the wrap.

I had no issues with the gliding of passes. The pattern’s sight texture helped keep each pass where I needed it. The wrap was super soft and snuggly when it was here. Almost like a near and dear blanket. The 100% cotton makes this an airy wrap – had no heat retention issues at all. Pink Imperia became super floppy with a bit more work, but I can see it becoming even softer.

I love macro shots. These are my favorite. As you can see the pink threads are even brighter close up. With the weaving process, the colors end up not so bright – making more of a purple color.

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣

Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣

Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣

If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣

My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
