Phillip and Lisa Carter with their three children. 


Lisa was first introduced to babywearing when she was given a Baby Bjorn during her first pregnancy in 2008. Both of her older children loved those snuggles, and it was particularly useful to have free hands when caring for those first two under two. Baby #3 didn't seem to find the Baby Bjorn as comfortable as her siblings had, so Lisa purchased a Baby K'tan and then a Girasol woven wrap.

After entering the world of woven wraps and falling in love with the beautiful gradient designs of handwoven wraps, a local babywearing friend told her about the weaving class offered by the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. Weaving came easily with her background in other fiber crafts, and Lisa first planned to begin offering custom handwoven wraps to supplement their family income. But after a suggestion from her husband one evening, she began to pursue the idea of working with a textile mill to offer the same quality of wrap but at a more affordable price, and Apple Blossom Wovens was born.
