The baby carrier (Na'vi name: iveh k'nivi s'dir) is a carrier used for carrying infants by the Na'vi.

DescriptionEdit

Babycarrier

A woman with a baby carrier in the film.

A tight frontal wrap keeps Na'vi infants close to their mothers' or fathers' bodies. The carrier keeps babies warm and allow the parents to run, climb, and carry out domestic activities. The wrap also helps socialize Na'vi children, who are face-to-face with their parents from their first days and thus learn appropriate facial cues and gestures, as well as language.


Materials and ConstructionEdit

Soft sturmbeest leather with fur, cut in strips, tanned and softened.
