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!
