About us

Hello my name is Kerry Berry (yes really !) mum to four very gorgeous girlies who keep me busy and inspire many of my creations. I am a qualified Textile Designer but much of my creativitiy and sewing skill came from my Great Aunt who taught me to sew from the age of 7. My mum is also very handy with a sewing machine and occassionally lends a hand with my sewing projects. I studied Fabric construction alongside Textile design and I enjoy working out different constructions methods for the different types of fabrics that I use. I am known to be a bit of a prefectionsit but I haven't had any complaints about this so far !

I am passionate about Babywearing and started making Custom Baby carriers in October 2006. To date I have made over 400 carriers, mostly one of a kind Wrap Conversions but also Mei Tais,   Podaegis,   Pouches, and Ring Slings too. I feel truly blessed to be able to work sewing carriers and I enjoy the challenge of working to each persons specifications.

Here is a picture of my girls, the inspiration behind the Ocah name, Olivia (she's our funny, nurturing 4 year old that wont answer to anything other than Libby !), Caetlin (aka Caets Libbys Bossy Twin sister who likes to sing and make us laugh), Abigael (Abs or sensitive little 9yr old that has a talent for Running and loves to look after people), and Hannah (Han, our 12 yr old academic and the big sister in the family ).

If you have contacted Ocah  asking for information or advice, or to confirm the details of your Custom order the chances are that you will have received an email fom Claire.  Many people assume that Claire and I work in the same office but infact we live over 100 miles away from each other and although we email each other daily our busy schedules mean that we dont get to see each other as often as we would like. Something else that people often assume seeing all of the work that Claire does for Ocah is that this is her full time job but this is not the case.  Claire Own/Runs a busy Residential home for the Elderly , she is very good at her job and highly regarded by her work colleagues and residents. 

Claire is Mama to the oh so cute Megan, and is a keen Babywearer who says that she stumbled across Babywearing whilst pursuing her Cloth Nappy Obsession ! Claire and I became friends after exchanging emails when she ordered first one and then another Ocah carrier and before long she had volunteered to help with organising the Yahoo Group Database.  Claire now  organises all of our customer orders and responds to request for information.   Ocah would just not be the same without her.
