I set this company up in 2006 in North London where we lived at the time. Having struggled to use reusable nappies on my baby twins when they were first born I decided that I would set up a company promoting cloth nappies and selling them at reasonable prices. By organising nappy talks I wanted to help parents find the right reusable nappy for their baby and give them all the information they needed to get those nappies working really well for them. All the firsthand information that was not readily available to me when my babies were tiny. My nappy talks proved incredibly popular and I now run them throughout London in conjunction with a number of councils and supported by Real Nappies For London. In 2008 Haringey council awarded me ‘Green Business of the year’. In 2009 we moved to St Leonards on Sea and I continued with The Washable Nappy company locally and in London. Over the past few years I have been selling more nappies online so I have been trying to offer the same advice and support to all my virtual customers too. I now run regular ZOOM demos. Please always feel free to contact me if you have any problems or questions with your nappies. My husband, children, brother and mother have all been involved during the years, and still are today, so this really is a family business!
I run my company from an office at the bottom of my garden. I still do nearly everything myself with help from my husband and daughter at Baby Shows and when orders spike. I recycle all packaging and try to run as eco friendly business as I can. I love my work and feel very privileged to still be up and running.
