Welcome New & Expecting Parents!
The partum/post-partum wrap that you have received is a complimentary gift requested by yourself or a loved one. The matching hats were a bonus from us!
You wonderful humans are in an exclusive class of mothers to receive our first official Maternity accessories.
We were first introduced to the concept of the traditional Malaysian Bengkung Binding wrap in 2021 thanks to a dear friend who is a certified doula and midwife. She initially reached out to have us create four knit(stretch) versions instead of the traditional woven(non-stretch) binding wrap.
She shared that her clients really loved the wraps, so we knew we had something on our hands.
Fast forward to May of 2022, we sought to elevate the experience of our wraps for our maternity market, thus offering a wrap for anyone that requested one or that we knew was expecting.
It's been a long road, personally, to get this project to completion. From getting proper textiles and packaging that fit our company requirements of being eco-conscious and sustainable, educating ourselves on how to educate our clients (like this intro info page), to developing our new Maternity section on the site altogether, and more.
Nonetheless, we hope that this info page is just as beneficial as our wraps and maternity items that we plan to offer soon.

About Bengkung Binding
Bengkung Binding is a traditional Malaysian practice that has been used for centuries as a form of post-partum after care for new mothers.
Typically, these binds consist of a long strip of woven(non-stretch) fabric that is wrapped and knotted around most of the torso-- usually, extending from slightly below the bust to falling at about the hip line.
Binding/wrapping altogether are said and confirmed by many partum and post-partum mommies to offer the following benefits:
Reconnects separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
Supports the pelvic floor
Brings stability to loose ligaments
Relieves water retention
Helps decrease back pain & provides back support
Helps and supports the uterus and surrounding organs to return to their prior pre-pregnancy form
Feels like a warm hug
Our Bengkung Binders will be made of primarily woven cotton and silk fabrics
Standard size will be 15yds long, but can be made longer or shorter upon request.
About Partum & Post-Partum Wraps
Our Partum & Post-Partum Wraps are a stretch alternative to the traditional Bengkung Binding method. Many if not all of the same benefits shown above apply to the stretch wraps.
Added pros are the softness, breathability, shorter length, and give provided with a knit wrap versus the firmness & structure of woven wraps.
What we love about these wraps, is that not only can they provide support during and after pregnancy, they can also be used as a sling to wrap mommy, daddy, etc with baby.
All in All, we hope you find many uses for our wraps and reap the benefits of caring for your during and after pregenancy.
