The one manduca for everyone:
 manduca® Twist

The Light-and-Easy baby carrier

It all started with a thought: more is less. We wanted to do it once again, give the world a new baby carrier. One which focuses on the essentials but does not leave anything out. One which is affordable and offers complete comfort.

One which only features organic cotton, while being affordable for everyone.
One which is lightweight and robust at the same time. One which fits, without ever being restrictive. One which is the best it can be for newborns and can also be used for back carries.

One which easily grows with the baby and keeps your little ones in the optimal M-Position®. One which fits all parents, without having to make any adjustments. 

One which is comfy and cosy, while looking stylish at the same time. One which you simply slip on and never want to take off.

What should we say?! We’ve done it! Say hello to the new manduca Twist – the one manduca for everyone!

Simply functional – without compromise

The pouch of the manduca Twist can easily and simply be folded to adjust the size
for both newborns and larger children. The width of the seat can be adjusted at the simple flick of the wrist.

Simply fold down the head support – it remains in place on its own. Regardless of how big your baby is, the head and neck are always optimally supported.

With drawstrings for easy one-push adjustment.
Easy adjustment in height, without zips or buttons. Simply push up to the neck of your baby and the carrier hugs your little one perfectly.

Not too much and not too little. Single layer shoulder straps are spread over the shoulder and back to distribute babies weight. The straps can be twisted, as we say at Manduca, for those who prefer this and to offer extra support for small babies.

The manduca Twist is made up of a diagonally elastic cross twill fabric, like a woven wrap sling, but with much less material. This makes it ultra-light and offers maximum support.

manduca Twist changes everything

The manduca Twist does not have to be adjusted to fit the size of the person carrying the little one. This makes it even easier for parents to share the carrier between themselves.

  • The manduca Twist is simply placed on the wearer’s body and adjusted to fit while tying it on.
  • The innovative drawstring makes it easy to put on and always ensures the right tension of the fabric
  • The comfortable waist belt secures the position of the manduca Twist. The intuitive handling is self-explanatory.
  • The manduca Twist offers great value for money, without any compromises in comfort and quality. This means you’ll have more to spend on other baby items.
  • Of course, the carrier is made of organic cotton, at no extra cost. For us at manduca, this goes without saying.
  • No hook and loop fasteners, no buttons, no cords. We focus on the essentials. Just pure fabric and a buckle. It’s that easy.



When folded, the Manduca Twist fits everywhere, without padding and too many straps That’s what makes it so practical, just made of diagonally elastic woven fabric. It is ultra-light and can be easily folded to take along everywhere. 

At the same time, it functions to the highest standards. The manduca Twist is ideal for newborns and babies weighing up to 9 kg. Developed and safety tested for up to 15kg weight.



The spread–squat position is the natural position newborns automatically take when they are picked up. They bend their little knees and instinctively prepare to be carried. We at manduca call this the M-Position®, as the baby’s bottom and bent legs create a big “M” shape, M for manduca.

The manduca Twist ensures your child is continually in the M-Position as recommended by orthopaedists and midwives. The M-position is the natural carrying position of a child and relieves the not yet fully developed hip and spine.
