Our founder Ines Correia

“I first used cloth diapers when my eldest daughter was born, having used many types and materials of cloth nappies. Although the overall experience was positive, I realised the adjustment mechanism to fit well babies from newborn to toddler could improve.


When I had my second daughter, the eldest was still 18 months. So I developed our own adjustment system that could comfortably fit the newborn and the eldest, while being leak proof even at night time.


For over 1 year I have designed, stitched and tested over 30 different prototypes at home until we were fully happy with it. We were able to test the fitting against the two extremes of sizes and body shapes.  I was surprised myself with the level of comfort and absorbency achieved in babies with such different sizes.”

Reusable nappy ≠ Sustainable nappy

“During this journey, I realised how much greenwashing was used to promote modern cloth nappies. ‘Eco-friendly’,  ‘natural’, ‘bamboo’ inserts and liners are actually viscose / rayon bamboo, which is a regenerated cellulosic fibre, not a natural one, and which  production method can be highly pollutant to the environment.

‘Microfiber’, ‘microfleece’ and ‘stay-dry’ inserts are actually made of virgin polyester and associated with synthetic micro plastics release in the wash.


As a mother and as a consumer, I feel that parents deserved more transparency on what we are really buying.


We took the commitment to develop every product, thinking of its practicality, durability,  sustainability and circular economy as core pillars.”
