Baby Carrier

Pygmy, DRC

 Raffia Baby Sling/Carrier. Pygmy,  DRC

 

This rare Pygmy baby sling/carrier from the North-Eastern DRC has an amazing contemporary appearance.

The carrier is made from multiple strands of twisted and knotted raffia fibre attached to the main body of a woven-raffia bodice.  

 

The sling consists of two layers of a sealed under carry, which acts like an animal pouch, protecting the baby when it is carried.

The sling/carrier is similar in form to a bodice, with a tapered lower section which serves to secure the baby. 

 

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
