The Story of Mission

The Story of Mission

Limited Edition Boba 4G - Mission Designed by Gabby Caperon

Mission was named and photographed by our Assistant Creative Director and Babywearing Educator, Alyson de Recat.

I grew up in southern California, just a few minutes down the road from the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. I regularly walked by the beautiful grounds as a child, did countless reports on it's history and could recite the story of the swallows for anyone who asked. Not until I reached adulthood did I truly realize how much I had taken this wondrous place for granted. When Gabby designed this print I was immediately filled with nostalgia thinking of the textured walls and crumbling buildings where the swallows return to each year.  

After naming the print, I had the privilege of photographing my cousin Erika and her sweet daughter Iris (who live in SJC around the corner from the Mission) when I was home visiting. We spent the day under blue skies laughing and reminiscing about when we were Iris' age, skipping around the mission without a care in the world. Now it's a place that we can return to together, year after year, just like the swallows.

This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s light weight, basic, and made of a rain coat type material. I plan to use this in the pool this summer for my 10 month old when juggling my other two.

This is our favorite carrier we’ve used. It’s so much lighter than any other carrier we’ve used and baby girl loves it!

Perfect baby carrier for us. It's lightweight but still supportive. It has a nice, good look to it. It's also practically made and the zipper/pocket storage is great. Also, I can take this anywhere with us because it's compact.

I bought this because I needed a carrier to take my son with me on hikes, it works really well for us. I use it for everything from taking him on errands to doing chores around the house.
