On a heart and soul level it is a good, deep, comforting hug. This bengkung bind is individually created using a cold water eco friendly ice dying technique.

FABRIC The cotton we have chosen is a beautiful premium grade, medium weight, natural unbleached cotton muslin that is slightly heavier and higher thread count then the majority of muslins. It is a fabric utilized and loved by many textile artist for its strength yet soft drape. DYE We only use cold water procion dyes using eco friendly dyeing techniques. Procion dyes are the chosen dye of the textile industry for they will not wash out and fade. It is the common most utilized dye used on organic clothing due to the minimal processing and safety of the dye. Please be careful of claims using vinegar as a dye set. Vinegar is not a dye set for any cellulose (plant) fiber cloth. We wash all binds with a professional eco friendly detergent designed for hand dyed garments. We wash them thoroughly but recommend washing them separately for ease of washing and to remove any last traces of dye that might temporally remain. EDGES. We are often asked what is the difference of a fray edge to a sewn. Actually quite abit. THE FRAY BIND provides more flex and ease in the binding. Many women are drawn to the natural beauty of the frayed look. Our fray bind is not a raw edge, but frayed properly to stabilize the fabric as much as possible. Because the fray edge is not reinforced or stabilized the treads always has the tendency to ease open abit. Because of this we recommend a sewn bind to aid Diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation). The beauty of the bengkung bind is that it wraps to fit your personal body, not your body trying to fit into a premade wrap,(crucial for me having curvature of the spine). The success of the bengkung binding relies upon your wrapping technique to create a consistent uniform pressure where it is needed (again check out our Facebook support page on more about proper wrapping technique.) The most stabilized consistent fabric is a sewn edge. With a fray the outer edges will always give a bit and be looser then the middle of the band. This can cause the fabric edge to roll, and continue to open or fray. What helps is how you bind. You want to overlap each layer rising at the most two finger widths. We tell our buyers to actually double the first layer to create the most stable first level, crucial for the pelvic floor support. With a fray having the correct overlap it will help a bit to stabilize that open edge but it still will open and give some, creating a bind with more flex then a sewn. For some this is a preferred option. With a fray bind you can easily tear the bind to the length you need. THE SEWN BIND is a turned smooth overlock edge having a professional finish, low profile and commonly used as the finishing edge on linens. It lays smoothly along the contours of the body and does not bite in. A flat wider overlock edge has small loops, sometimes quite large loops that can snag, be broken and cause the sewn edge to unravel. You commonly dont see this stitch being used on the outside of garments for this reason. Having a sewn edge is more helpful when adjusting your bind and easier to wash in the machine. Our sewn binds are custom sewn to the length that would best fit you. Our sewing fee is 16.00. We have included a sizing chart to help you but please reach out and consult us. We often sew lengths for our customers inbetween what is stated on chart so please please please consult us. We want it to be perfect. MENSTRUAL RELIEF The Bengkung Belly Wrap will ease your body during your menstrual cycle by reducing duration (up to 2 days!) and soothing the aches and cramps. I am a certified Postpartum Doula and Sacred Pregnancy Bengkung Binder but more importantly I am a woman who binds every month and has been for over two and a half years. Please feel free to consult me on this practice. WASHING Machine wash separately in cool or cold water on a gentle cycle. Line dry. When washing and drying a fray bind a few loose threads will come off. These are easy to pull or cut off. We have found draping the bind in large loops over the shower rod or clothes line works best for drying. For comfort and convenience we recommend wearing your bind over a tank top, not against your skin. The wrap doesnt require to be washed frequently and if a small staining occurs due to baby, tea, whatever..... spot clean if possible. The BAREFOOT MOMMAS We are a mother daughter team.
