Neobulle Deauville Collection Dune Gris Ring Sling Review

After my first try into Ring slings with the Didysling, and because I was not entirely satisfied I wanted to explore more and try another one. It was exactly when Neobulle launched their brand new Deauville Collection.

It was love at first sight. I was also in love with the collection name that was bringing me back to my childhood. Yes, I know I am an emotional buyer. I grew up in the North-West suburb of Paris and every weekend when the sun was shinning, my parents will bring us to Deauville. Deauville is a seaside town in Normandy. We had lots of lovely memories there and the prints of the new Neobulle collection reminds me exactly the Deauville seaside!

Neobulle is a french company specialised in babywearing and baby products.  Their wraps are handwoven and for this Deauville Collection, they got Rugiada Petrelli involved who is a fabulous textile designer. This is what she says about her collaboration with Neobulle:

“Deauville is the new collection of patterns that I designed for Néobulle a company that produces baby wraps. All jacquard woven in cotton in the Loire region in France.
The collections is based on the childhood memories of long and happy summers at the beach. The soft sound of the waves, the laughter, sand castles, long beach walks and swimming in the sea.
Deauville also evokes the Roaring Twenties that attracted creative like Gabrielle Chanel (Coco Chanel) and Charlie Chaplin. The collection is a tribute to this soft atmosphere of femininity and pays tribute to the ‘grand flâneurs.”

I think she did very well as this is exactly what the prints remind me!

Deauville Neobulle Neo sling

I choose the Deauville Neobulle Neo Sling Dune Gris – a gathered shoulder ring sling, woven with 100% pure cotton. Perfect for newborns, bigger babies and toddlers. Super-soft, easy to care for and wonderful to wrap with different coloured rails for ease of adjustment.

The Neobulle Dune Gris, made in France, has become my absolute firm favourite.  It has just the nice weight of wrap, beautifully woven and so easy to use. The fabric slides so easily in the rings making the adjustement a breeze. This time the tail of the ring sling was perfect for me to use and will definitely suit a UK plus size 20-22.

Key Features:

  • 100% organic cotton – Oeko-Tex 100 Cetified
  • woven in a jacquard weave
  •  gathered shoulder ring sling for right or left shoulder
  • made in France
  • weight:  200 g/m²
  • front & hip carry

My view:

As a newbie I preferred this to my Didymos Didysling. No need to break in , already very soft and flexible, I use it a lot. I love the print and the colour, discreet and elegant. No fancy here, and thi sis what attracted me. I feel more confident with this slingm the tail being longer and because it is easier to use. I love my ring sling and I feel that I can now practice more confidently.

I love it so much that I will be getting a Neobulle wrap soon. The fabric is so easy to handle in comparison to the other I have. The more I can compare the more I realise that you definitely need to go to a sling library before committing to a particular one.

    I too am an emotional buyer , I bought an Aurora picallily swaddle before she was born. If I were to win this I would donate it to my friends sling library so that lots of people can get the ring sling live

  4. A fab review as always! You go into such detail and can trust your recommendations. Would love to win this as not only will I get to try a ring sling myself but will also let other mamas at my local baby groups try it as well (spreading the babywearing love).

    Looks like a great ring sling – I haven’t yet tried a ring sling but would love to as it seems great for quick carries. I love the subtle pattern too.

  6. I’ve never owned a ring sling but think it would be really useful for things like the aquarium where baby wants to see and being on the hip is such a natural position for babies!

    I am in love with these prints. My son is 18 months old (half birthday today!) and we are STILL happily going out for little strolls or longer hikes with our carrier. I love having my little bub so close, and reading that these slings are good for newborns – toddlers is AMAZING. I’d love to own one to use with my son now and hopefully a few more little’s later on ^_^

    Just to be sure though, I do absolutely adore these prints! My son is 18 months, but we still enjoy using our current carrier on strolls and long hikes. The fact that these slings are good for newborns to toddlers is AMAZING and I would hope to use it with my son and other littles later on ❤
