Our Story

 

Where It All Began

When faced with the choice of either disposable diapers or old-school pinned cloth diapers with plastic covers, Jakki Liberman decided to create her own alternative. She developed her own style of cloth diapers that combined the soft, absorbent cloth inner layer with a colorful, waterproof outer layer, fastened with Velcro instead of pins. Little did she know that her creation would become popular with other mothers who loved this modern take on the traditional cloth diaper, nor that this signature waterproof fabric would grow into a successful line of bibs, bags and other products all designed to be fun and family-friendly.
 

The People Behind It

Based in Phoenix, Arizona, our office is surrounded by the rugged beauty and dramatic desert sunsets for which the region is known, while simultaneously situated in the nation’s sixth largest city. We may not wear cowboy boots, but our team embodies the independent spirit of the southwest.

We are serious about work and play and we want that to translate into our products. Our in-house designers strive to create playful prints and practical products that can be enjoyed by both parents and children. Licenses like Disney, Dr. Seuss and DC Comics allow us to bring some of everyone’s favorite characters to the table and make our already useful products even more exciting for the whole family.

 

Where We are Today
