Product Focus: Clover Organic Fitted Diapers

Clover fitted diapers are made of US milled organic cotton fabrics from South Carolina. We value organic fabrics because 25% of the insecticides and herbicides used in agriculture is used on the conventional cotton crop. Specifically we use organic velour on the outside of the diaper and atop the soaker pad for softness and for it's low-pill properties. The hidden layer within the diaper is organic french terry for its durability, trimness, and absorbency. The bottom layer of our soaker pad is organic heavy weight terry for its super absorbent properties. Our diapers are comprehensively eco-friendly because not only are they made of organic materials but they are constructed with an exterior soaker pad for easy washing and quick drying time. This reduces the cost of laundering and the strain on our energy resources.

Clover diapers feature elastic at the waist and legs to contain messes, soft serged edges with wooly nylon thread, and side snaps. My personal experience was that side snapping diapers did not droop on my skinny daughter and I could get a better fit on her little legs. I also love pairing the fitted diaper with soft woolen covers. Wool is breathable, natural, and is a better protector against leaks. The addition of button hole elastic in our fitted diapers was to increase the its longevity by making it a snap to replace should the elastic ever fail. Parents can easily replace weak elastic without lifting a needle and thread. Or they have the option of sending the diaper to us for free elastic replacement and repair. Although I have been making diapers since 2003, the final version that is known as the current Clover diaper was invented in 2007.

My love and inspiration for everything I do is my little girl, Maeve. She is our one, the only birth child to me and my husband, Jon. Our family is also graced by our adopted son, Dylan, who is autistic. For the first 12 years of my professional life after college I was the caregiver to a medically fragile child. That was a beautiful experience and has shaped who I am today. Since 2005 I have been working full time with my husband running his blueprint business and also working with my staff to make the Clover diaper products. We are very proud of our work and hope that our customer service and lifetime product warranty keeps our customers happy!

Chic Mama said...

OOO-one more diaper to add to my wishlist! When will the madness end!?

Secret Mommy said...

I love your product focus entries! (I buy wayyyyyyyy too many diapers because of them, but I LOVE them!) :)

Katrina said...

I considered buying one of these yesterday when I placed an order, but thought I'd wait and try and win one first. As always, it's fun to read the story about the mom behind the diaper.

Meghan said...

These diapers seem to be well constructed. I especially like the fact that the elastic can be repaired easily. I know elastic can wear out so this would be especially useful if using the diapers for a second child!

Kristin said...

I am just getting into making my own diapers and I love to hear about the construction of the diapers that you can purchase.

Brittany said...

These are by far my favorite post! I love getting the "dirt" on different brands as well as hearing the personal stories.

Suzy said...

I love to hear the creater talk about their diapers, it is easier to buy them, when I know more about them.

EdenSky said...

Another great story about the real people behind the brands, thank you

Montana Mama said...

I must say, you seem like an amazing woman! I admire that so much care went into making this product!

Kristin said...

I can tell a lot of love goes into those diapers. They sound amazing!

Liz said...

I have to agree with a PP, the product focus is my favorite post of the week :) I especially enjoy reading about WAHM companies! I just love this blog so much!

Brena said...

It's so exciting to see companies that care for the environment. And more than just buying out their carbon footprint, but actually protecting the environment.

Serena, what do you think of the Mommy's Touch diapers you have? I registered for a few MT AIOs for my shower, but was told they don't work for everyone so I didn't ask for too many. They're so affordable and sound tempting with the liner that doesn't need to be separated in the wash!

I'd love to try these! It's so nice to be able to buy from a family instead of a big company, and nice to buy US made products too. That's one thing I like about CDs-- it's never hard to find US made stuff.
