We would like to introduce you to our weaver. He’s the elderly man in the first picture on the right here. Well, your guess is right; on the left is Adebisi, director of Joy&Joe limited, UK and mother to two cheeky and special children, joy and Joseph. We fondly call our weaver ‘baba’ which is a Yoruba (African) word for father. He is truly a father though he behaves likes he’s our friend. Baba has been acclaimed a master weaver in the UK due to the expertise he’s brings to UK weaving over the years. He’s told us before that he won’t retire when it comes to weaving because this is his life passion. We often show him our facebook page and he’s so happy to see mothers enjoying our woven wraps. He is often assisted by his son. . They are the only two who runs the weaving house that we use. So you see why weaving is a slow process . More about him, since 1952 he has spent all his working life working within the English Textile Weaving Industry. He has achieved the reputation as a master craftsman in the art of fine weaving modifying his conventional looms to accommodate the most intricate weaving designs and materials. From his workshop in North of England, he uses his wealth of experience to create unique colourways and designs using many different fibres and has been weaving his own range of fashion scarves since the late nineteen nineties. These are displayed and sold in UK craft galleries and more recently in Madison avenue Gallery, New York.

Well, we wanted you lovely mums and dads to appreciate that we (Joy&Joe) are into weaving your superb quality woven wraps because we are deeply passionate about quality, babywearing and subsequent rejuvenation of the UK weaving industry.
